The world-renowned artist on Lake Attersee

Comparable to Claude Monet’s Giverny, Paul Cézanne’s Provence and Egon Schiele’s Krumau, the Attersee was a place of unique artistic activity for Gustav Klimt (1862-1918). The world-renowned artist regularly spent the summer months between 1900 and 1916 in this region, preferably holidaying on the turquoise lake with his life partner Emilie Flöge (1874-1952) owing to the family ties between the Klimts, Flöges and Paulicks. Some 20 years previously, in 1883, a travel guide on the Attersee mentioned that one would have to be a “highly capable painter”, if one wanted to “come close to determining the colors of the lake”.

In 1900 Gustav Klimt managed to capture the shades of the Attersee so masterfully in a painting that the art critic Ludwig Hevesi called it a “frame full of lake water”. Gustav Klimt would ultimately be inspired by the Attersee to create more than 45 of his approximately 50 known landscapes, which continue to delight art enthusiasts from all over the world. In 2003 an Artist Trail was dedicated to the famous holiday maker in the Salzkammergut, while the Gustav Klimt Center opened in 2012 in Kammer-Schörfling in close proximity to the avenue of Schloss Kammer once painted by Klimt.

Experience a touch of this unique atmosphere for yourself!

A visit to the Klimt Center, a walk along the Klimt Artist Trail or a boat ride on the Attersee will allow you to retrace Klimt’s steps and explore his impressive motifs on land or from the lake.

Soon you too will understand Klimt’s annual longing to “be there”!
