Every year four musicians of the musical society Grünau gladden many visitors with their performance at lake Almsee.You can hear the echo sounds from the end of June until the beginning of September on wednesdays 19:30 pm at the "Echoplatzl" if the weather is fine.

Every year, four wind players from the Grünau im Almtal music club delight visitors with their performances at the Almsee from the end of June to the beginning of September every Wednesday at 7.30 p.m. when the weather is fine.

From the so-called "Echoplatz'l" they put their musical skills to the test and enchant the audience with their clear echo sounds. A special kind of enjoyment of nature, music and the soul, especially since the unique ambience - formed from the majestic mountain backdrop of the Dead Mountains and the colorful, shimmering Almsee lake at the head of the valley, which is idyllically embedded in the landscape protection area - puts you in an idiosyncratic mood.

The Grünau echo blowers
The Grünau echo blowing in its current form was founded in 1967. Fritz Drack sen., Josef Gierlinger, Erwin Seidel and Franz Moser started at a concert of the Grünau am Almsee music association to try to elicit an echo from the rock walls with the melody of the "Almsee-Echo". The attempt was successful and since then the club's musicians have been performing echo blowing every Wednesday in the summer months. The traditional line-up of the wind quartet are two flugelhorns, a tenor horn and a bass. In addition to the “Almsee Echo”, other traditional pieces such as “D'Gamsjagerei” or “da Alpera” are performed by the wind players.

The region
The area around the Almsee with its almost untouched nature is certainly one of the most important and most beautiful landscapes in Austria and is also imaginative extensive nature reserve. Already in the founding deed of the Kremsmünster Abbey by Duke Tassilo III. In 777 the area up to the mountains was transferred to the monastery for administration. To this day, the Almsee and a large part of the surrounding forest area are owned by the monastery. In addition to Kremsmünster Abbey, it was mainly the aristocracy who secured forest holdings in the area. Best known are probably the Dukes of Cumberland - the House of Hanover, to whom Emperor Franz Joseph gave a hunting and forest area in Grünau as a thank you for the help was made available and who are based here to this day. For centuries, forests, hunting and fishing formed the basis of life for the people in the inner Almtal and are still the most important economic factors alongside tourism.
