Art and culture

Happy Birthday! 2020 is a special year – we are celebrating Ludwig van Beethoven's 250th birthday in Baden and Grafenegg. Many happy returns also go to the Baden native, Arnulf Rainer, who is now 90, and who is honoured in the exhibition ‘Revue’ in ‘his’ museum. The gallery Kunsthalle Krems opened 25 years ago and Austria also joined the EU 25 years ago, which is the theme of an exhibition in the Karikaturmuseum, which is located across the road from Kunsthalle Krems. The State Gallery of Lower Austria, which has already celebrated its first birthday, is displaying the show ‘Wachau’ – which celebrates the 25-year anniversary of Wachau's status as a World Heritage Site. We are looking forward to a rich and varied programme of cultural events!
