Skulpturen Panorama Kramsach
At the foot of the impressive Rofan Range and surrounded by lush forest and picturesque meadows, a true work of art is spread out along the course of the Brandenberg Stream: the KRAMSACH SCULPTURE PANORAMA.
Kramsach has a long tradition of arts and crafts, which has had a strong influence on the community.
Significant contributions include the Achenrain brass works (1614-1939), the stonemasons of the "Hagauer Bauhütte" (1513-1823), the Kramsach glassworks (1626-1933) and the Holztrift (timber logging) (1412-1966).
Since the Middle Ages, the so-called Kramsach marble has been quarried in Hagau. With its reddish hues, it was used as a high-quality building material in castles and churches. The first mason lodge was erected in 1465, and master stonemasons such as Walter Einberger and his son Stephan still work in Hagau today, continuing the tradition of working with stone.
Glass production and processing also have a long history in Kramsach. The first glassworks was founded in 1626 and remained active for over 300 years. Artisanal businesses settled near the glass production sites and refined the glass by painting, cutting and engraving. After the Second World War, these glass processing companies founded a school in 1948. It still exists today as "HTL Kramsach Glas und Chemie" and attracts young people interested in art from all over Tyrol as well as renowned artists who teach there.
The artist Peter Schneider (1919-1965) from Kramsach is also worth noting. His war memorials, fountains and gravestones are widely known in Tyrol. After studying at the School of Applied Arts in Innsbruck (1944-1948) and the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna (1950-1955), Schneider found his artistic inspiration in faith. His works are part of the SKULPTURENPANORAMA and are exhibited there.
