salzkammergut 2024
The region of the Salzkammergut has been inhabited and enlivened for millennia.
The area extends over three federal states with a multitude of municipalities – each bearing its own history. 


The Salzkammergut (with Bad Ischl as the applying city) is bidding for the title of “European Capital of Culture 2024”. This offers the chance to re-think the region within a European context, to analyse its strengths and weaknesses and to initiate a longterm perspective.

As the basis for the application a cultural development plan is being drafted, which serves as an action framework for cultural policy with a lasting effect. It comprises cross-sectional topics like education, mobility, labour, building culture, infrastructure, economy, tourism, migration, politics, ecology and others.

Salzkammergut 2024 addresses everyone who lives here and/or who feels connected  to the region. The question of how we want to live together in the Salzkammergut affects all of us!

We are looking forward to hearing your ideas: buero@salzkammergut-2024.at
