Telling stories from person to person is one of the oldest and most current cultural techniques in human history. In 2010, UNESCO added the tradition of storytelling in Austria to the list of intangible cultural heritage. What is important, is not only that a story is told, but also what it is and how it is told. Storytellers from different countries communicate their passion for this tradition to students through the Salzkammergut region. In doing so, language development, the access to foreign languages and literary understanding will all be supported. This playful experience will have a sustainable effect as glue cementing a living community together.
