Culture walk Unterach
 If you have known Unterach so far only as an idyllic bathing place and culinary paradise, you must now change your mind, because it holds a variety of cultural sites that you can experience on a walk. We start at the picturesque ensemble "Church, former schoolhouse" , known by the Klimt painting. We look at St. Bartholomew, who was not only roasted, but also witnessed how before his eyes married librettist Viktor Leon took hold of the lovely Risa in 1897.Little known is also that Unterach gave the lovers Eduard Boulenger and Philipp v. Ferrari, the richest man in Europe, a triumphant reception in 1892, the pastor, the mayor present, at a time when the homosexual brother of Franz- Josef, Ludwig- Viktor,disappeared into oblivion in Salzburg. You will learn about the background of the incident during our cultural walk. The most famous work that was written in Unterach is Hugo Wolf's "Feuerreiter" and - irony of fate - set to music in the foggy, difficult to heat giant villa, which the then owner Friedrich Eckstein graciously left to Hugo, who was seeking rest. In the nearby Berghof, Wolf Brahms was a guest, both of them enemies because of Wagner. And between Berghof and Eckstein villa the Katzenlotte house, where for generations child-rich small farmers, fishmongers and leatherworkers fought for survival!This coexistence of rich people, artists, intellectuals, brooders, "spinners" and locals inspired Thomas Bernhard to write his beautiful novella "The Cap", which is set in Unterach and accompanies us on the hike.
But also the pre-tourist period has left interesting traces that are easily overlooked; how, for example, did the coat of arms of the Salzburg Alt family, from which the famous Salome Alt came, come to have the honor of adorning Unterach's coat of arms?
