A new project called „aufDraht“ is initiated by the non-profit cultural association named “Kulturverein K.U.L.T.” which is located in the village of Hof bei Salzburg. The idea of this project is to provide musicians and their self-composed music. A Jury will decide which of the submitted compositions are gonna be recorded professionally. The result of each recording is a musicvideo which will be published on social media such as the channels of the cultural association and those of the musicians. The presentation of the final result is happening at the event called “Jam-Session” which also was developed by the “Kulturverein K.U.L.T.”.
This event takes place regularly and is intended for communicative musicians to find new contacts.

The entire region around the two lakes Mondsee and Irrsee has a small mosaic of different habitats that offer shelter for many rare animal species. From the moor meadows around the Irrsee to the wooded flysch slopes, the orchards of agriculture to the rugged cliffs of the northern Limestone Alps, there are opportunities to make special observations and really immerse yourself in nature. As soon as it is possible again, our forest educators and hiking guides will finally have the opportunity to bring guests and locals closer to our wonderful habitat. They will introduce guests and locals to the most panoramic peaks of the region, such as Schafberg or Almkogel, from which you can enjoy fantastic views of the two Salzkammergut lakes.
Fans of local culinary delights will get their money's worth on a wild herb hike along the "Lebensroas" theme trail, and e-bike guide Joe, for example, will ensure firm calves and magnificent views.
Time for a break?
As soon as the situation allows, it is time to enjoy a selection of local culinary delicacies.
