About the project

Altaussee celebrates the Capital of Culture Year with a great European: Hugo von Hofmannsthal spent 34 half years of his life in Ausseerland as a summer guest of his friend and patron Yella Oppenheim. Here he wrote his most important works and initiated the Salzburg Festival with companion Max Reinhardt. The opening of the newly designed Altaussee Literature Museum in words, pictures and sound is dedicated to him. Franz Winter will read from the poet’s opera libretti, which will be set to music by the “Salinenorchester Altaussee” and the “Ausseer Bradlmusi”.

Regular opening hours:
Mon-Sat from 10-12:00 and 14:30-18:00
