Insider tip

Picnic with art: Exclusively for the Kunsthaus, the artist An Seebach made 15 site-specific picnic blank ets. If you put the blankets together, you will see a work of art with appliqués made of fleece and photo prints. The blankets can be borrowed free of charge during the opening hours of the Kunsthaus.

THAT'S where you picnic!
