architectural treasures around the Traunsee, Hallstättersee, Attersee and Mondsee

SEPTEMBER 10-13, 2020


here to the TOURPOTOS


Concept and moderation: Marion Kuzmany / ARCH ON TOUR; in cooperation with Judith Eiblmayr / architect and architecture mediator

Guided tours: Judith Eiblmayr; Christa Buchinger, Andrea Frauscher-Oberfrank, Gerhard Fürtbauer, August Hinterwirth, Maximilian Luger, Franz Maul, Alois Spiesberger, Heribert Wolfmayr, and others

Tour operator: Mondial GmbH & Co. KG

In four days, the tour leads to four lakes and their architecturally richly equipped villages on the water. Villas, castles, holiday homes, boat houses and bathing houses line the crystal-clear lakes, some of which are connected by rivers and surrounded by gigantic rocks and provide an impressive natural spectacle. Numerous exclusive indoor visits to private houses in the presence of the respective architects and contemplative walks to hidden finds are on the rich program, which also offers the possibility of refreshment in the cool waters through accommodation directly on the lake.

Judith Eiblmayr, based on her research for the publication "Der Attersee - Die Kultur der Sommerfrische", will accompany the entire journey from the Traunsee over the Hallstätter and Attersee to the Mondsee in a valuable architectural and cultural-historical way.
