Behind the

At the heart of Bad Gastein, a youthful undercurrent is stirring. Once a refuge for emperors and empresses seeking the healing powers of nature, the village has been somewhat forgotten in recent decades. Today, thanks to a small but mighty creativity community, the pocket-sized paradise is slowly re-emerging from the shadows of its former self - and for good reason.

Stay tuned as we shine the spotlight on some of Bad Gastein’s latest happenings and Europe’s finest talent through a series of collaborations with gallerists and artists.
