Art & Lake

Inspiring: Spring at Lake Wolfgangsee
When in spring the region around the Wolfgangsee peels itself out of the winter dress and begins to please in the tender bright green, then it is time to discover nature anew. End with the sluggishness of the last winter days! Now it is all too easy to refresh the spirit, refresh the soul and redefine one's personal center among budding shrubs and germinating flowers. The possibilities, it seems, are almost limitless. A stroll through picturesque villages, a boat trip on Lake Wolfgangsee, a hike in Austria's largest alpine pasture area - the Postalm - or a visit to cultural events.

Cultural awakening
In springtime at the Wolfgangsee region not only nature awakes. Also culturally a fresh and warming wind blows, because so much wonderful nature naturally also inspires creativity. The fine arts and literature have long since found a home at Lake Wolfgangsee. Sitting at the house wall of an alpine hut in the already comfortably warm sun, the first snow roses sprout and the emerald green Lake Wolfgangsee is in the view - here not only artists can be inspired.
The region around Lake Wolfgangsee starts as always full of energy and joy into the new season. This year for the first time with an international art festival, the Art Circle International Austria Wolfgangsee.

Art Circle International Austria Wolfgangsee from April 28th to May 5th 2024
It is the beauty of the Lake Wolfgangsee and its surrounding nature that has always attracted artists and creative people. Already in the interwar period, starting in 1927, a number of artists spent their summer holidays at Lake Wolfgangsee and joined together to form the Zinkenbach Painters' Colony.
In spring, international artists are once again inspired by the lake and mountain panorama.
Art Circle is an international festival for visual arts. Since its beginnings in 1997 in the Brda region in Slovenia, it has brought artists from all over the world together for a week to exchange ideas with locals and visitors and to be inspired by the region. This year the Art Circle International takes place for the second time in Austria in St. Wolfgang.
Visitors are invited to be present when works of art are created. Experience art and creativity, exchange ideas with 22 international artists in Open Studios, take an inspiring boat trip on the Wolfgangsee and taste the culinary variety in the picturesque village of St. Wolfgang.
