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.
Capital of Culture 2024
The Salzkammergut is rich in exciting stories, places and people. It is a multi-layred region whose impressive historybegan 7.000 years ago with salt mining in Hallstatt and became synonymous with summer resorts in the 19th century when the Viennese court and its entourage came to visit. Since then, the growing travel industry, inspired by iconic landscape images, has firmly embraced the extraordinary lake and alpine region. Time to turn over a new leaf in 2024.
