This art lodge is exactly where we all would love to escape to right now
Where young art meets nature and coziness
Feature 04 Apr 2020

Host for art and friendly guests

Kunstalm is the name of an artist in residency programme and sculpture park by the owners Katrin Liesenfeld-Jordan and Dirk Liesenfeld of art-lodge Hotel in Carinthia, Austria. Where spectacular artworks are in direct dialogue with it’s surrounding landscape, the couple behind it all reveal the importance of making art accessible and how Kunstalm offers its visitors a “soft” entrance into the art world.
“Its fascinating to confront our guests (do not forget, we are showing the collection in a hotel and not in a museum) with contemporary art in a very relaxed atmosphere. Maybe, the constantly growing sculpture park is the most meaningful aspect as long as we are presenting art in a natural environment that is admission free for the public and without being too educational”, Katrin describes their soft approach to connect their guests with the on-site installations.

Once we all are allowed to travel again, this seems the perfect place to recharge your empty batteries and kick off your new goals – meanwhile add it to your daily dose of virtual escapism.
