The Klimt Center on Lake Attersee

From 1900 to 1916, Gustav Klimt regularly spent his summer sojourns on Lake Attersee. Since 2003 the Klimt artist-trail has been honoring the famous Art Nouveau painter and since 2012 the Gustav Klimt Center in Kammer-Schörfling on Lake Attersee informs about Klimt's life and work in this region.
The first exhibition (2012–2014) was curated by the Leopold Museum, Vienna. In addition to numerous private lenders, the Klimt Foundation's founder, Ursula Ucicky (2012), and the Klimt Foundation (2013/2014) provided loans too.
With the season start in March 2015, the Klimt Foundation took over the economic and scientific management of the documentation center. Since then, the non-profit private foundation has been designing seasonal exhibitions at the Klimt Center every year.
Visitors can experience the fascinating atmosphere of Lake Attersee, which captivated the famous Art nouveau artist for 17 summers. Klimt's paths and motifs on the land and on the water can be discovered by a walk along the Klimt artist-trail, by visiting the 2019 newly opend Klimt garden or with a boat trip on Lake Attersee.
