Culture is a top priority in the Traunsee-Almtal region!
A multitude of cultural events take place throughout the year in the various villages in the Traunsee-Almtal region. Whether music events or customs we are known for cultural events of all kinds.
Living tradition and culture
This is important to us and here is clearly the craft to do it! You can experience the history and traditions at the various events, from the Echoblasen on the Almsee over the Leonhardiritt to the church Heiligenleithen up to the Georgiritt to the church in Kösslwang and on many occasions more in the whole region.
Capital of Culture 2024!
Yes, that's the ambitious goal you set yourself! It is about the unique opportunity to rethink the region in the European context, to analyze its strengths and weaknesses, and to develop a long-term perspective and a new, motivating narrative motif.
Museums that keep us moving!
You think museums are always the same and bore you to death? Then you're in the right place in the Kriminalmuseum in Scharnstein or in the loo and So exhibition in the K-Hof in Gmunden! Yes it is different and yes it is sometimes a bit slanted, but why not, but that's not all.
Salzkammergut Festwochen Gmunden
The Salzkammergut Festival Weeks Gmunden have been the cultural focal point of the region for three decades now. Culture on the Traunsee and summer resort - this congenial connection has a long tradition. So every year is a mixed program of classical music, jazz, theater, performance, readings, architecture talks and much more!
