Cultural Highlights

The cultural events reach from traditional customs, exhibitions, concerts, readings to theatre and cinema.

Culture in Austria is an essential part and omnipresent - in the alpine regions the cultural events are manifold and reach from tradtional customs to modern art.

A certain focus is certainly on the rural customs - due to the central location in the Alps. Additionally the close distance to the city of Salzburg guarantees top-quality and unique cultural experiences.

Mozart and the "Sound of Music" are always perceptible - not only in the city of Salzburg but also in the mountain resorts - the Trapp family, for instance, had strong link to the Zell am See Kaprun area as they lived here for a while.

The cultural diversity also includes a contemporary perspective. Numerous exhibitions, galleries, concerts and festivals such as the Jazzfestival Saalfelden or the Summer Jazz Gastein present high-quality events.

Besides Gastein offers a special programme for all art aficionados: "sommer.frische.kunst" enrich the summer with fresh and new art in Bad Gastein. The "Kunstresidenz" is the unique venue. Young artists find their space in the old power-station at the waterfall for artistic evolvement.

The "Kunstresidenz" is a central point for prestigious international contemporary artists - the art festival light-display makes Bad Gastein shine.

A completely different event in the winter is the "Art on Snow" festival in Gastein. Across the villages and the mountain slopes artists create various art-work in sight of the public. The highlights are then presented in the unique exhibition "ARt of(f Party" afterwards.

All local events and programmes are displayed on the event calendars of each resort.
