In the middle of a unique natural landscape.
The most beautiful places of the Salzkammergut offer the incomparable setting of the Salzkammergut Festwochen Gmunden, which celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2017. There are unique venues such as the historic Stadttheater Gmunden, the famous Seeschloss Ort, the monastery Traunkirchen, the privately owned Villa Lanna, the harbor Frauscher directly at the Traunsee among others, which are a fantastic backdrop of the festival production.
Since 2014, artistic director Prof. Jutta Skokan has expanded the tradition-rich summer festival into a year-round festival: since 2014, the Easter Festival offers musical and literary highlights in spring. In autumn 2015, the first BLÄTTERRAUSCHEN took place. Finally, since 2016, the SCHNEEGESTÖBER offers cultural winter shining lights on Lake Traunsee.
A trip to the Salzkammergut is always worthwhile, especially during the festival season, when it is possible to experience unique and touching moments in the encounter with music and literature in the midst of an enchanting landscape.
