The festival of art and culture sommer.frische. kunst will draw visitors in summer 2016 from around the world to Bad Gastein for the sev- enthtime.
Bad Gastein has always been a place of high culture and a magnet for artists and art aficionados. Franz Schubert, Arthur Schopen- hauer, Thomas Mann and Gustav Klimt– they all opened themselves to the inspiration of Bad Gastein in summertime.
This unique tradition, deeply rooted in the history of the town, is something we wish to continue to nurture; which is why art and culture are such important pillars in our tourism activities.
Bad Gastein is also a place undergoing trans- formation. Change draws creative spirits.
