The Klimt Museum on the Attersee

From 1900 to 1916, Gustav Klimt regularly spent his summer sojourns on the Attersee. Since 2003 the Klimt artist-trail - relaunched in 2021 - has been honoring the famous Art Nouveau painter and since 2012 the Gustav Klimt Center (Museum) in Kammer-Schörfling on Lake Attersee informs about Klimt's life and work in this region. Since 2022, guided tours in German through the historicist Villa Paulick have also been organized through the Klimt Museum.
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 museum. Since then, the non-profit private foundation has been designing seasonal exhibitions regularly.
Visitors can experience the fascinating atmosphere of Lake Atter, 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 opend Klimt garden or with a boat trip on the lake.
