The hikeable art project

The art project nock/art was launched in 2012 and focuses on contemporary art and its interaction with the landscape, the people living in it and with hiking.

nock/art is based on the idea of developing hiking in a holistic sense, and enhancing the sporting and nature experience with an additional dimension. If you think about the contemplative essence of walking in the landscape and the thermal springs as a logical unit, the only element missing if you want to achieve the ancient bathing culture is spiritual enrichment in the form of art and culture.

We are part of the art project too: as well as the official nock/art library at the Hotel Trattlerhof, our dolomite quarry is being transformed into a work of art by the famous artist Ingeborg Strobl.
