The optoacoustic sound installation by Klaus Filip and Thomas Grill tells the story of life in the "hedgehog".
Listen through the telescope into the mountains during the day (approx. 10-15h) in sunny weather, at night (approx. 21-24h) in clear weather.

The Salzkammergut is not only a place of nature and culture, but also has an important political history. During the National Socialist era, a strong tradition of resistance was cultivated here. Remote alpine pastures and high mountain regions served as hiding places (so-called “Igel”) for those persecuted for political and religious reasons. Knowledge of the barren environment and harsh climatic conditions, together with the cohesion of the local communities, helped the persecuted to survive here.

Water Sound Flows

Thomas Grill and his team connect the places of the region by presenting the sounds of water in different forms, using various artistic strategies.
