Nature and Environment “Gesäuse - Wildes Wasser, Blanker Fels”

Nature and Environment (), Michael Schlamberger 50 min

Nowhere in the Alpine mountains are water, forest and rocks located so steep above each other, do the vertical rock faces emerge so high from the soil, and is the sound of the roaring cataracts refracted in a louder echo than in the Gesäuse. For generations of mountaineers, these peaks have been a challenge. Nevertheless it wasn’t the courageous alpinists, but the monks of the Benedictine monastery Admont who, 150 years ago, were the first to conquer these mountains. Hidden behind the walls of the monastery is a jewel of baroque architecture – the greatest monastery library in the world. Many of the old books and documents make history come alive and offer new, unexpected insights into a world which seemed almost forgotten. With breathtaking pictures, Michael Schlamberger tells the extraordinary story of a landscape and its changes to the creation of the most recently opened national park in Austria.
