Customs, knowledge, craft techniques | The sky over the Lake Traunsee # 2023

The intangible world cultural heritage of the Alpine region


Whether it's the summit of the Traunstein, Traunkirchen, jutting out into the lake, or Laudachsee, hidden away on the Grünberg, there are many places the inhabitants of the lakeside communities of Lake Traunsee go into rhapsodies about. In conversations with people from the region, director Martin Vogg paints a picture of life on the lake, in which customs such as the Mordsg'schicht or Liebstatt Sunday play an important role.

For centuries, culture and landscape have combined to form a harmonious unity at Lake Traunsee, which is still cultivated and appreciated today as it was in the past. Immerse yourself in the world of traditional costume, Plätten boats, Gmunden ceramics and much more.


Customs, knowledge and old craft techniques

In the 15 documentaries, the intangible cultural heritage is presented as an integral part of the Austrian cultural landscape. The films search for traces of the past in order to make the creation and changes of intangible cultural heritage visible. They document the current situation, whereby the character that creates identity for the present is highlighted. And they address the question of what importance the care of heritage has for the future of the Austrian cultural landscape.

“Heimat Österreich” takes you to the most beautiful cultural landscapes in Austria. Elaborately designed documentaries portray long-held traditions and customs, explore popular pilgrimage sites and show how culture and nature intertwine in the heart of Europe.
