Art on Snow Gastein

The unique winter art festival in the Gasteinertal

Gastein will once again be transformed into a unique cultural hotspot from 4. to 10.2.2023. At the largest art festival in the Alps, interested visitors can admire large and small works made of snow and ice. In the ski resorts and centres of the Gastein villages, exhibition pieces on the theme of "time travel" will be on display this winter season. And best of all, the studios are outdoors - in Gastein's wintry fairytale landscape.


With sculptures, photo exhibitions, paintings, sculptures and innovative multimedia installations, there has already been an enormous range of offerings at the art festival in Salzburg Land in previous years. And this time, too, the artists will come up with many spectacular and creative works. Snow and ice are pressed, milled, chiselled and polished for the Winter Art Festival in Gastein. This results in exciting insights for the Art on Snow.

Ice carving competition

On Sunday, 30.1.2022, visitors have the opportunity to watch ice carvers in an art competition at Art on Snow in Gastein in Bad Hofgastein. With saw, chisel and hammer, the artists work the 1 x 0.5 x 0.2 metre blocks of ice into a variety of sculptures. The ice flies through the air and visitors are amazed at the skills of the cool sculptors.

Be there, because the passers-by decide who wins. The works of art can be admired for longer during a walk through the town centre, but only until the sun melts the Art on Snow masterpieces.
