Overview
More
On the Attersee, Gustav Klimt derived Inspiration for his famous landscapes which continue to fascinate art enthusiasts from all over the world to this day. Since 2015 the Klimt Foundation has been running the documentation center situated in immediate proximity to the linden avenue of Schloss Kammer once painted by Klimt. Visitors can experience the fascinating atmosphere of the Attersee which captured the famous Jugendstil artist‘s imagination from 1900 to 1916. Klimt‘s paths and motifs in the countryside and on the lake can be explored via a walk along the Klimt Artist Trail or a boat ride on the Attersee.

This is a small center for information on the artistic activity for Gustav Klimt who regularly spent the summer months between 1900 and 1916 painting the landscape. It was here on the Attersee that he created the vast majority of his over 50 landscapes. Just...More

You ´ll finde a great overview through the life and the period of Klimt. In a perfect presentation they present the beautiful pictures and the wonderful environment from the Attersee. Particularly worth seeing is the short and concise film

This centre is a fairly new addition to the attractions of Lake Attersee (itself a beautiful area of Austria) and shows the relationship between Klimt's holidays in the area during the early 20th century and his landscape work. If you thought Klimt as a society...More

Lovely exhibit and very nicely done movie about Klimt in the Attersee area. A "trail" follows the lake front with more information, created by the museum.
