All summer long- from June to October - exhibitions, installations, open studios, creative workshops, concerts, summer theatre performances and countless other artistic and cultural activities offer fresh entertainment in Gastein.
Several times a day the Spa Orchestra plays music from "JEDERMANN". They claim this is a cultural experience for young and old. Particularly popular in good weather, the outdoor events in the alpine pavilion are a must see.
