The World Artist at Lake Attersee
Gustav Klimt's discovery of the Attersee as a refuge for summer holidays began almost 50 years after the first tourist impulses in this region, in the summer of 1900. In search of quiet places for relaxation and artistic inspiration, he found them at his favourite lake, the Attersee.
On the occasion of the 150th birthday of the Art Nouveau artist on 14 July 2012, the Klimt-Centre opened in a prominent location on the Schlossallee in Kammer-Schörfling painted by the artist.
Since then, the Klimt-Centre with its cinema, shop and café has established itself as an attractive meeting place for regional visitors and international guests!
