Art makes you see. Discover your way.

For 14 years, Bad Gastein has become a hotspot for contemporary art during the summer months. The mission of the sommer.frische.kunst. Festival and its founder Andrea von Goetz is to enable visitors to experience art in special places. In combination with the spectacular mountains of the Austrian Alps and the unique architecture of Bad Gastein, the art festival in summer 2024 will be a very special adventure. Under the motto “Art makes you see. Discover your way.” the festival will send its guests on a journey: in search of art and their very own, personal experience of art, and for the first time with an KunstWanderKarte, designed and illustrated by Sebastian Meschenmoser, one of the most erzahlerisch painters of his generation. With the KunstWanderKarte 16 stations are hiked – from art in the village center, over the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Promenade and all the way up to Sportgastein. There, visitors can see the spectacular half-timbered sculpture “Harps” by Olaf Holzapfel and the installation “In the name of a day” by Kazunori Kura.

The art festival makes our magical Bad Gastein just that little bit more magical…
