Bahnhof Andelsbuch cultural society

Culture is a regular visitor to the “bahnhof”, the converted imperial and royal station in Andelsbuch from the abandoned Wälderbahn. It hosts over 50 events every year. Exhibitions, lectures and discussions, fairy story readings, lieder evenings and concerts attract locals as well as visitors from Switzerland, Germany and Liechtenstein to the bahnhof events location. It is the objective of those running the bahnhof to bring global culture to the Bregenzerwald and to show the world which culture thrives in these parts. This may take the form of art by young avant-gardists or the artistic craftsmanship of older people from the Bregenzerwald. The bahnhof enjoys an international reputation amongst musicians, music agencies and the media alike. Moreover, it is the birthplace of the most exciting new band in Austria at the moment – the Holstuanarmusigbigbandclub (HMBC).
