The Brandner Valley is one of the most beautiful alpine valleys in Austria. The best way to discover them is by hiking in September, when the view is clear and the temperatures are neither too cold nor too warm. The "berge.hören" cultural project makes use of this ideal time by inviting people to come on cultural and leisurely hikes every Sunday in September. During the hikes, musicians and mountain guides accompany hikers to broaden their horizons on a panoramic and musical level. That’s because vibrant music is played in the cabins after an enjoyable hike: the music ranges from classical music to jazz to bossanova in alpine areas. Alpine traditions are thereby intertwined with sounds from other cultures, as if resounding Balkan music or waltzes and mazurkas from the Danube region had forever been at home here. High-brow art comes together with the opportunity to meet the artist in person whilst hiking together. The discovery of the culinary specialties of the Vorarlberg mountain cabins completes this cross-border experience.
