Donauwörth and Donau-Ries:
cultural meeting place
at the Danube bridge

The administrative district Donau-Ries has 132,000 inhabitants, 7 cities and 2 market towns. The area around the mouth of the Lech into the Danube and the Ries crater also has a diverse and fine, lively cultural scene. The bridge in Donauwörth was long the only one far and wide. Numerous people from near and far therefore travelled through the region and made stops there. Among them were Napoleon Bonaparte and numerous cultural and artistic figures who inspired the population. The most famous was none other than Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The traces he left in the area are maintained by cultural organisations and communities together in a separate association. Then as now, music has a special significance in the region. It is a central part of several series of events and has always produced important composers and musicians beyond the region. The centres of the district, its numerous historical points and cultural monuments, some of which belong to the local princely lineages of Oettingen-Oettingen, also form a stage for contemporary art and a small but fine theatre and cabaret scene.

Musical floor

A separate association of municipalities and cultural organisations has taken up the numerous traces that Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart left in the region. With the composer brothers Ignaz and Vinzenz Lacher as well as Werner Egk, the district has also produced several composers itself. Music enjoyment is provided by classical event series such as the Donauwörther Kulturtage, the Leitheim Castle Concerts, the Oettinger Residence Concerts, the Kulturkreis Mertingen and also the Rosetti Festival in the Ries as well as the Rieser Kulturtage. Several music schools are the basis for the next generation of musicians. The violinist Veronika Eberle from Donauwörth and the chellist Maximilian Hornung, who partly grew up in Nördlingen, are two musicians known nationwide.

People and personalities

People and personalities

The inhabitants of Donau-Ries are said to be down-to-earth, loyal and sometimes a little bit resistant to change. The most famous inhabitant of the district is probably Count Stauffenberg, who is well known for the almost successful Hitler assassination. His family still lives in Amerdingen today. Other famous personalities are the scholar, doctor and botanist Leonhart Fuchs (*1501 in Wemding), the Nördlingerin Maria Holl (+1634), who was burned as a witch, Krafft Ernst Fürst zu Oettingen-Wallerstein (1748 - 1802), who married into the dynasty of Thurn und Taxis, the author Ludwig Auer, known as "Uncle Ludwig", and the politician Anton Jaumann from Belzheim (+1994).

Food and drinks

Food and drinks

A speciality with a great tradition in the Donau-Ries district is the Rieser Bauerntorte. It is available in a catholic and in an evangelic variant. From this it can be concluded that it has been around since the time when the population in the area was religiously divided. Other traditional dishes are the Rieser festive soup and the Rieser roast goose. Current specialities from the Ries or Danube-Lech region are asparagus and potatoes.

The Gateway to Tyrol and the
Culture and nature park region

The small town of Vils and the three towns of Pinswang, Musau and Pflach together have only 3600 inhabitants. But the area at the gateway to Tyrol and the Nature Park Tyrolean Lech, dominated by the natural river Lech, and the adjacent Tannheimer Tal also have a lot to offer culturally.

Breitenwang, Reutte and Ehrenberg:
Center of the culture-
and nature park region

The entire Tyrolean Außerfern, whose centre is Reutte, has only about 33,000 inhabitants. But the area in the Tyrolean Lech Nature Park, at the foot of the Bugenwelt Ehrenberg, is also culturally well-positioned and has a lot to offer. The active team of the Reutten Museum in the Green House is in charge of a district wide museum network, in which each museum has a different focus. The Ehrenberg castle ensemble is a top attraction, conveying history and culture in the open air, in a didactically sophisticated museum and in several event locations. The houses in the district centre and many architectural monuments are largely influenced by the Zeiler dynasty of painters. As esteemed building craftsmen and artists, the Reutteners shaped buildings and places beyond the regional borders. Even today every cultural area in the central part of the district is well represented: art, music, theatre and cabaret, literature, ... There is even a film circle dedicated to the cultivation of the moving image.

Living cultural history

Living cultural history

It is noticeable in the central area of the district that several active persons of cultural history have come here at the same time. The active Reutten Museum in the Green House under its chairman Ernst Hornstein, independent master painter and director of the woodcarving school Elbigenalp, is the leader of a district wide museum association, in which each of the museums has a different focus, which complement each other to form a whole. The retired bank director Richard Lipp, who studied history as a senior, and the school director Klaus Wankmiller complement the culturally and historically active team. The driving force behind the top attraction Burgenwelt Ehrenberg is architect Armin Walch. Burgenwelt conveys cultural history in the successively renovated 4 fortress parts of the ensemble in the open air, in a didactically sophisticated exhibition and several event locations.

Architects

Architects

The people of Ausserfern, as esteemed building craftsmen and artists, left their mark on their region and also on buildings and places beyond the region. From the immediate central area of Reutte, the painters, especially the painter dynasty Zeiler, are worthy of mention. It is also a painter who today plays a major role in shaping the museum scene in the district capital and district, Ernst Hornstein.

Important Art

Important Art

Among the artists, the Zeiler dynasty of painters stands out in particular, who left their mark on buildings and art monuments in the region and beyond. With their architectural painting they once created what makes the historical core of Reutte special today. Currently, the Galerieverein Reutte and art projects such as Landart on the natural river Lech are revitalising art in the Reutte area.

Music

Music

The Reutte area had and has always had good musicians. Not far from Reutte, in Bach im Lechtal, the leader-maker, singer and bandleader Toni Knittel is also at home. With his band and the song of the same name the "Bluatschink" helped to mobilise for the nature park Tiroler Lech. The district music school in Reutte takes care of the new generation. Franz Wachter and Klaus Wankmiller constantly organize musical events that serve as a stimulus and stage for musicians from the region.

Theatre, art and film

Theatre, art and film

An active group transformed a cellar into a hip cultural location and played with all kinds of cabaret in the "Kellerei". Special attention is also paid to the promotion of young people. The Filmcircle Breitenwang has taken on special moving pictures.

The most famous Reuttener was the priest and astronomer Anton Maria Schyrle. In his main work he describes his benocular telescope. Terms such as objective and eyepiece are from him. Furthermore a moon crater is named after him.

Events and customs

Events and customs

Among the traditional festivities of the Reutte area, the St. Nicholas parade in Lechaschau and the Patrocinia festivities deserve special mention. By the way, the patron saints of the churches trace the course of the Via Claudia Augusta. The biggest cultural event in the area is certainly the Ehrenberg Time Travel, where hundreds of historically dressed showmen bring history back to life.

Art and artists

Kunstwerk

Necessity is the mother of invention. Before the road over the Arlberg was reactivated, which had already existed in Roman times, and finally the railway and some industrial companies arrived, the region around Landeck was bitterly poor. Numerous children moved away as Swabian children. Maybe it was really because the Landeckers were always very creative, in general, but also artistically. Jakob Prandtauer and several other baroque master builders known beyond the borders came from the area. The region has also always been a good soil for artists. Chryseldis Hofer-Mitterer, Herbert Danler and Norbert Strolz unfortunately do not live anymore, but have left a lot in Landeck. Norbert Strolz was, in addition to his artistic activities, chairman of the District Museum Association in Landeck Castle. Herbert Danler is considered one of the founders of the Galerie Elefant. A number of artists from the Landeck area are also currently active: Georg and Arthur Salner, Michael Schneider, Alwin Chemelli, Norbert Pümpl, Erich Horvath, Christian Moschen, ... to name but a few. There are also several other exhibition locations beyond the Elefant Gallery: the Museum Gallery in Landeck Castle, the Town Hall Gallery in Landeck, the Gallery of Walter Stefan and Pepi Walch in Fliess. Last but not least, Gerald Kurdoglu Nitsche is active as gallery owner and organizer. So the creativity in the Landeck area is probably not only due to poverty.

Music at the highest level

Musik in Landeck

In the Landeck area you can regularly hear music at the highest level. The first flutist of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra grew up in Landeck and organizes the annual music festival Horizons there. Also the Stadtmusikkapelle Landeck stands out once again from the already very high level of brass music in Tyrol. It is the oldest brass band in Tyrol and its repertoire also includes symphonic works, with which the ensemble even won a World Championship gold medal. For the 375th birthday of the ensemble the composer Johan de Meij, who was born in Holland and works in the USA, composed the monumental work "Via Claudia" and performed it for the first time with the orchestra. "Via Claudia" was also released on CD in America. Interested parties can obtain the work as part of a CD from the Stadtmusikkapelle and as an MP3 from the iTunes-Store, among others.

Architectural monuments, archaeological sites, art history

1500 v. Chr.

The Landeck area is rich in architectural monuments, archaeological excavations and cultural treasures. Since pre-Roman times, all sunny slopes around the district town have been inhabited: Stanz, Grin, Fliess... Above Fliess a burnt offering place was discovered, which was used before and during the Roman period. In the Museum Fliess, in the former Meßnerhaus, you can marvel at a number and quality of pre-Roman finds, which can otherwise only be found in museums of larger cities. Some churches are also very old. E.g. those of Fliess. The roots of the parish church in Landeck even go back to the 5th century, which confirms that Landeck was a Roman road station around which a settlement developed. It is no coincidence that the Tyrolean documentation centre Via Claudia Augusta is also located in Fliess, through which the Via Claudia Augusta von Landeck continues southwards. Around Landeck, three castles, the Kronburg, the ruins of Schrofenstein Castle and Landeck Castle, watch over the densely populated area and the thousand-year-old traffic junction. Bidenegg Castle follows in the direction of Reschen, in the upper part of the village of Fliess. In a room full of history, monuments and art history, there are of course restorers and art historians such as Dr. Habicher and Mrs. Mader.

Cultural centre and meeting place Castle Landeck

Schloss Landeck, Foto Albin Niederstrasser

Slightly above the town is Landeck Castle, which first gave its name to the district and then also to the district town, which is made up of several independent towns. The castle is the seat of the district museum association and the museum association of the town. The latter has successively turned the castle into a multifunctional cultural centre and meeting place. Art has always been important in Landeck and the function of a gallery has been correspondingly important from the very beginning. The first chairman of the museum association, Norbert Strolz, was himself an active artist. He was followed by the wine dealer ... and with Albin Chemelli again an active artist. Under Eva Lunger, the renovation of the entire castle was completed and it increasingly developed into a general meeting place, beyond pure culture. The current management team under Christian Rudig continues this development. Today the castle houses a museum with several exhibitions, a gallery, serves continuously as a venue for cultural and other events, has a restaurant with an outdoor area and is generally a cultural meeting place. By the way, from the tower you also have a beautiful view of the city.

Tyrolean capital of the Via Claudia Augusta, Fliess

Museum Fliess Aussen

Fliess is the "capital" of the Via Claudia Augusta Tirol. Fliess was the starting point of the initiative to revive the Austrian Via Claudia Augusta, initially as a hiking route from Landeck to the Reschenpass. It is still today a part of the long-distance hiking route Via Claudia Augusta in the footsteps of the Romans, one of the most beautiful parts, especially from Landeck Castle via the Fliesser Platte to Fliess. The documentation centre of the Via Claudia Augusta in Tyrol and the headquarters of the Tyrolean Association Via Claudia Augusta are also located there. Vis-a-vis, the Archaeological Museum of Fliess inspires with a number and quality of pre-Roman finds, which are otherwise only found in larger towns. Above Fliess, a burnt offering place, which was used in pre-Roman and Roman times, the Kaunergrat Nature Park House and the Gache Blick are waiting to be discovered.

Literature

Gerald Nitsche

With... Krismer from Zams, Raoul Schrott, who was born in Landeck, and Prof. Gerald Kurdoglu Nitsche, Landeck also has interesting writers. Kurdoglu Nitsche, by the way, gave himself the second surname Kurdoglu in protest. He is also an editor with a focus on minority literature and a gallery owner.

Theatre and art

Kultur in Landeck

With the theatre stages in Zams, Fliess and Urgen the area at the Land Eck also has 3 theatre stages.

People

Oswald von Schrofenstein, Beliebter Pfleger von Landeck und Gönner der Pfarrkirche von Landeck

A creative space also usually has exciting personalities. One such was Oswald von Schrofenstein, for example, who was an influential aristocrat, was considered a great patron of the Landeck parish church and was very popular. Pastor Maaß from Fliess is even known to have been a saint. Furthermore, the current governor of Tyrol, Günther Platter, comes from the region. Before that he was mayor of Zams and minister in Vienna. Governor Platter is also a member of the Via Claudia Augusta Tirol association.

Delight region

Schnaps, Likör, Brot, Marmelade, Genussregion Tirol West

The region around Landeck is the only dedicated region of pleasure along the Via Claudia Augusta. It has numerous specialities to offer. The best known are probably the fine brandies. With 100 distillers, the region is probably the richest in distillers. Most of them come from the sunny slopes between Stanz and Grins. Some of them are, as awards show, among the very best. Schnapps is distilled not least from the Stanzer Zwetschke, which is also appreciated as a particularly tasty fruit beyond the region. A selection of other fine products from the region are seedlings, herbal specialities or handmade chocolate. The products are offered, among other things, at a weekly fresh market. They can also be found more and more in the gastronomy. Josef "Seppl" Haueis from Zams, co-founder and gastronomer of the Tyrolean inn culture, has made a great contribution to this for decades. By the way, the inhabitants of the region particularly like to eat zochne Kiachl, Krautspätzle, Riebl, dumplings and meat from Tyrolean grey cattle and Tyrolean mountain lamb.

Festivals and customs

Brennereidorf Stanz, Foto Tirol West - Albin Niederstrasser

The Landeck area keeps its traditions alive. A traditional speciality is the breaking of windows. The distillation of schnapps should also be seen as a custom, which is the focus of the already traditional annual open day "Schnaps distils".

Historical customs station Altfinstermünz

Altfinstermünz Pfunds Nauders Reschenpass, Foto Lammerhuber

The customs station Altfinstermünz with its striking bridge tower was founded in the Middle Ages. Already in Roman times there was a bridge on the Via Augusta at the same place. In 1856 the construction of the Reschenstraße was completed, which, partly further developed, still connects Pfunds and Nauders today. Up to that time, all traffic led across the bridge from Altfinstermünz and then through the gorge up to Nauders. Only a few decades ago Altfinstermünz was still inhabited. Then the fortress ensemble threatened to fall into complete ruin. Thanks to the Altfinstermünz Association under Nauders former mayor Hermann Klapeer this did not happen. He renovated piece by piece and breathed new life into it. This includes a permanent exhibition, rooms for temporary exhibitions, a simple catering, ...

Oldtimer Classic Nauders

Oliver neu

Every year the Classic Nauders brings together historic cars and their enthusiasts in the village of Reschenpass.

Art "GrenzARTig"

Grenzartig

The roof of the Via Claudia Augusta is a special place that inspires. It can be seen, for example, along the old road between Nauders and the Reschenpass, which largely corresponds to the Via Claudia Augusta and is now the cycle route. Art is displayed along the narrow road. In Nauders, a painting circle meets every week, to which everyone can join. Art is also at home with the hosts at Reschenpass. GrenzARTig, for example, is an initiative launched by the Kleinhans family in and around their Alpin Art & Spa Hotel Naudererhof. Every year artists and art lovers are invited to the Art and Enjoyment Festival for one week, which shows what the border region of Obergricht (A), Vinschgau (I), Engadin (CH) has to offer in the way of art, culture and culinary delights.
