Mahler and Steinbach am Attersee

Gustav Mahler arrived in Steinbach am Attersee for the first time in the summer of 1893. 

The breathtaking surroundings worked wonders for Mahler’s creativity, inspiring half a dozen songs and most of two enormous symphonies (2nd and 3rd) composed over the course of four summers (through 1896) in a specially built hut at the water‘s edge.

Today the "Komponierhäuschen", as it is known in German, has become a point of attraction for Mahler lovers all over the world.
