Leo's Gang Art
The Art Trail
The Art Trail was created by local artists under the direction of Nicole Waltl-Piffer. Along the three-kilometre loop trail at the foot of the Asitz unusual works of art were created with which they grappled with their home and nature.
Those who hike or walk here should not have physical exercise in the fore of their minds, but to leave behind the stress and hectic pace of everyday life to make themselves freely receptive to effect of the artistic works.

Art and Culture Community
With this Art Walk, which is reserved for pedestrians, Leogang continues its efforts to distinguish itself as an arts and culture community. So you should spend some time on the new Leogang Art Trail. “Those who hike and walk here will definitely not be thinking about physical exercise as their main preoccupation,” says Nicole Waltl Piffer. “It’s much more about releasing yourself from stress and the hectic pace of everyday life.”

Leos Gang Art Stands for Constant Progress
Each sculpture tells a story that opens up new perspectives and deals with current issues that concern and affect both young and old. Leos Gang Art therefore means never standing still –instead, it represents a path to constant progress. This is also reflected in the continuous artistic expansion of the trail. Information boards at the respective stations, provide detailed information about the respective artists and their ideas.
