Music over the lake

When in the evening the sun sets over the Plassen - the local mountain of the Hallstatt people - and the last boats sail into the "harbours", then it becomes quiet on Lake Hallstatt. It is precisely at this time that musicians from the Obertraun local music band take to the lake on the Fuhr, the traditional boat of the people on the lakes in the Salzkammergut, and invite you to an unforgettable musical experience: the “Weisenblasen”. Weisenblasen is the term for a small group of Alpine brass musicians usually consisting of at least a duo of Flugelhorns. It can be traced back to the turn of the century 1900 as a traditional act in connection with weddings, mountain masses etc.
