Gastein's Summer of Art & Culture

During the summer months, Gastein comes into its own in so many different ways, with one event hot on the heels of another, from cultural programs to concerts and folk festivals. Welcome to the summer events in Gastein!

In summer, it's hard to imagine anywhere more beautiful than Gastein. And everywhere you go in the valley, you encounter music, dance, celebrations and laughter. No wonder: Summer holidays in Gastein Valley are legendary and look back on a long history, punctuated by an array of famous personalities including Emperor Franz Joseph I, William I as well as Otto von Bismarck. All of them enjoyed the sight of the imposing waterfall in the heart of Bad Gastein and the fascinating mountain world of the Hohe Tauern range. Likewise, countless art and cultural figures were, and continue to be inspired by the beauty and power of this valley. But in addition to art and culture, tradition and folk heritage also find their rightful place in Gastein. The event highlights are many and varied - from the Alm Fest in Sportgastein to open-air concerts and sommer.frische.kunst.

 

Allow yourself to be inspired, as you look forward to the many event highlights of summer in Gastein!
