Art on Snow Festival - cancelled, but ...
The art week in Gastein
After the government announced that it would extend the lockdown and tighten measures in the fight against the coronavirus, the art festival Art on Snow has to be canceled.
The responsible people had hoped to the latest that they could at least offer domestic guests an outdoor exhibition with spectacular sculptures. The current development of the pandemic, however, makes tourist travel within Austria impossible, and with it, unfortunately, the Art on Snow.
At least some works of art by our employees from the Gasteiner Bergbahnen can bring a little "Art on Snow" flair to the Gastein Valley. The “Javorca” and the “Gastein Arch” on the Stubnerkogel, designed by the head of snow groomer, Hans Gold have already been completed. The "Osborne bull" at the Kaserebenbahn mountain station and the "Little Mermaid" at the Senderbahn mountain station should also be build until the end of January, 2021.
However, the ten-year anniversary edition of the event will only take place next year. More details will be announced soon.
