The world famous Austrian composer Gustav Mahler spent time composing at a 19th century Guesthouse on the shores of Attersee Lake.




From 1893 to 1896 Gustav Mahler resided at a Guesthaus called Föttinger in Seefeld/Steinbach and conceived parts of his Second and Third Symphony. In order to provide him with his own quiet place for composing, a small cottage was built to which he could retreat. This little hut was renovated in 1983 to reflect its original looks.
 
As of 1983, Gustav Mahler retreated to this hide-out and enjoyed the untouched nature around him, absorbing its sounds with his hyper-sensitive musician’s ears - the wind rustling through the trees at the shore, the rolling waves of the lake and the purling of the lake water between the stones.

The Guesthouse named Föttinger can still be found here on the shores of the Lake. Today, visitors come here for recreation, just like Gustav Mahler more than a hundred years ago in search of tranquillity and inspiration. At that time though, the shores of Lake Attersee were quieter than they are today!
