The intangible world cultural heritage of the Alpine region
LIFE AT THE FOOT OF THE ZUGSPITZE
Every year during the summer solstice on June 21, one can see the fires in the mountains around the Ehrwald valley. Based on the impressive custom from the list of intangible cultural heritage, Heritage Austria takes a journey through the Wetterstein mountains.
IMMATERIAL CULTURAL HERITAGE
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.
