The main role at a chamber music festival is the music. What distinguishes Schlern Music, however, are the encounters between performers and audience and an uncomplicated, non-academic approach to music. The carefully selected venues are of particular importance, because the hospitality of our partners creates the atmosphere that makes each concert unique and different, rounded off with small but fine culinary accents that match the location. Special attention is paid to regional specialities, the quality products of the many direct marketers in Völser and, of course, the wines of the Völser vintners.
ROMANTIK HOTEL TURM
The structural ensemble of the Romantik Hotel Turm consists of five towers, some of which date back to the 13th century. These towers give the hotel its unmistakable character. At the same time, there are terraces at different heights with wonderful views. The prelude to teatime will take place in the spacious hotel bar.
Versatile, colourful and cosmopolitan are the new ideas at the Stanglerhof farm. Many products from berry, herb and grain cultivation, sheep breeding and the vegetable garden are served in the barn, which is made of straw and clay and will also be played by all 10 protagonists of Schlern Music this year.
CHURCH ST. KATHREIN, VÖLSER AICHA
The church, originally dedicated to St. Michael, is documented in 1293. The colourful frescoes on the southern outer wall from around 1420, which have never been painted over, are worthy of attention. They tell the legend of the Christian king's daughter Catherine of Alexandria in expressive gestures and facial expressions.
Prackfoler Hof was first mentioned in a document in 1429. The name is derived from Latin and means pratum and wallis, i.e. meadow in the valley. From the 17th century onwards, grapes were grown and pressed here for the Lords of Prösels, and the Planer family is already the fourth generation to farm the estate.
The temperatures on the evening of the concert will determine whether the concert will take place in the minimalist industrial ambience of a hall located directly next to the company headquarters or surrounded by the warm scent of wood in the Malfertheiner joinery itself - both scenarios are highly appealing!
CAROMA COFFEE ROASTING
A promising scent always hangs over the Caroma coffee roasting house in St. Anton. The premises of the ultra-modern show roastery are once again transformed into a concert hall for Schlern Music. What is probably the world's largest collection of coffee mills and a real coffee garden can also be admired on this occasion.
The Jogwiese above the Huberweiher is part of the low pastures of the Völs am Schlern Alpine pasture cooperative. Since ancient times, the cattle have been gathered here from May onwards before being driven to the high pastures on the Schlern in July. This concert is only possible in excellent weather conditions, information updated daily on schlernmusic.it and at the tourist office in Völs.
CHURCH VÖLS AM SCHLERN
In the middle of the village square sits the parish church of the Assumption of Mary with its baroque onion tower. The church was mentioned as a large Romanesque building as early as 1170, and after a fire it was rebuilt in Gothic style in the 15th century.
The journey comes to a festive conclusion in the picturesque ambience of Prösels Castle, which lies amidst flowering meadows in May. The castle was built around 1200 by the Lords of Völs and expanded into a Renaissance palace complex in the early 16th century by the then governor of Tyrol, Leonhard von Völs. Various rooms of the castle will be played by all the musicians of the festival.
