The majority of his holidays the big composer Gustav Mahler spent at Altschluderbach in the Val Pusteria only a few kilometres away from the centre of Dobbiaco. Exactly there, surrounded by awesome nature and animals, in a small wooden hut, he composed the most famous opus in 1907, “Das Lied von der Erde”. The same time he also worked on the composition “Symphony No. 10” which stayed unfinished.
The Gustav Mahler Music Weeks at Dobbiaco are a small but very special event in compliment to the famous composer in a particular landscape.
