The Via Artis should not only be a reminder, but a visualization of what people and artists have gained for themselves from this landscape over the past decades.
Distance 7.6 km
On the VIA ARTIS (Artists' Trails in Ausseerland) you can follow in the footsteps of some artists who, like many others, have chosen Ausseerland as 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 reminders of the cultural past to form a harmonious whole.
Follow the footsteps of creative people who lived here and found inspiration for their work.

EquipmentProper backpacking makes many things easier: pack heavy things first. The water bottle should always be within easy reach in a side pocket. All things that are often needed such as sunglasses, camera or hiking map belong on top. An emergency kit including blister plaster belongs in every backpack and a clothing according to the "onion system" is always recommended!
