Art and culture

The 2020 Year of Culture is expected to be amazing, with so many events already announced. We would like to take this opportunity to share with you selected theatre premiers and music events, offer tips about exhibitions and tell you about unmissable festivals and concerts.

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!
