Gosauer Singwochen 2023

For more than 60 years, the Salzkammergut has been the attractive backdrop for a special music project: in Gosau at the foot of the imposing Dachstein massif, musical people from Germany and many other European countries meet in the summertime for the Gosauer Singwochen (ecumenical church music study weeks). The artistic director is the regional church music director Jochen Steuerwald from Speyer (Germany). During the day individual hiking, sightseeing and relaxation fill the program. The evening is reserved for intensive rehearsals. The culmination of the fourteen-day stay will be three concerts in which the participants will present the musical program they have developed together with renowned soloists and with instrumental support.
So that the musical holiday can become a real family activity, even the little ones are not left out: a children's choir project has been integrated for many years. Vera Steuerwald is in charge here. She is a singing teacher and youth music educator and has been successfully conducting children's choirs for many years.
Courses in organ playing with district cantor Tobias Markutzik and choir conducting with state church music director Jochen Steuerwald complete the offer.

Family Holiday in Gosau

Nestled among the majestic Dachstein, the imposing peaks of the Gosaukamm, the Kalmberg and Plassen lies the Gosau Valley at an elevation of approximately 730 metres above sea level. The romantic Gosau Lake, the hiking area of the Zwieselalm and the Löckermoss bog are considered alongside the comfortable pick-up train and the prehistoric forest park as absolute highlights for a family holiday in Gosau. Rustic mountain huts and gentle mountain meadows stir the souls of every hiking enthusiast. Over 65 kilometres of ski track cause cross-country skiing fans’ hearts to beat faster. With 84 kilometres of slopes and 37 modern lifts, both beginning and veteran downhill skiers can find ideal conditions in the ski region of Dachstein West. Romantic horse-drawn sleigh rides, experience-filled snowshoe hikes, adventuresome diving excursions, a plethora of tourism sites throughout the Gosau Valley and a wide selection of free-time activities complete the diverse package of holiday possibilities for both summer and winter. We hope to see you on holiday in Gosau!
