Via Artis Grimmingorte

Open
The hiking trail leads from the starting point at the birthplace of Herbert Zand in the district of Knoppen first along the main road to Obersdorf, then along a hiking trail to Bad Mitterndorf, from there also along walking trails to Tauplitz. The trail has four stations.
The Archduke had his chamber painters Jakob Alt, Jakob Gauermann and Matthäus Loder capture the beauty of this landscape and striking events during his multiple stays in many watercolors and drawings.These artists were followed by countless others in the following decades up to the present day: Not only painters and sculptors, musicians and composers, but above all poets and writers, but also scientists and scholars.

On the VIA ARTIS (Artists' Paths in Ausseerland) you can follow in the footsteps of some of the artists who, like many others, have made Ausseerland their summer retreat or even their adopted home. Like pearls, the three self-contained artists' paths - the Via Artis Bad Aussee, the Via Artis Altaussee and the Via Artis Grundlsee - are strung together with scenic beauty and memories of the cultural past to form a harmonious whole.
