Highlights from the culture programme

It is difficult to select a representative overview from the variety of cultural activities in Carinthia as the cultural calendar during the course of the year is too diverse for this.

Traditions and customs

Any discussion of the cultural life in Carinthia must include the colourful collection of traditions and customs to which Carinthians feel closely connected and that are guided by the course of the year and the cycle of life.

Witnesses to history

The south of Austria also invites visitors to follow the traces of an exciting history. Many witnesses to the distant past – more than 400 castles, fortresses and ramparts – are located throughout the country. One example is the medieval castle town of Friesach, where a castle building project is creating a bridge between the past and the present. The project involves the construction of a medieval castle complex exclusively using the tools and resources which were available in the Middle Ages – that means no electricity or machinery.
