In search of origins, the world’s underpinnings and the meaning of it all, Theater Hausruck (AT) has configured a surrealistic landscape painting as the set of a (pseudo) scientific, (theatrical-) archeological experiment in the forests of Upper Austria’s Hausruck region. Spun off from an operatic procession of pilgrims, Neuland proceeds along a mountain ridge to a research & education camp that’s been set up around a large, mysterious object. In amise-en-scène that fluctuates between reality and fiction, pilgrims, miners, musicians, locals and international scientists make their way.

Regular price: 27€ inluding transfer (please consider making a reservation through

Some things to consider:

  • Meeting points and departure times: Ars Electronica Center and OK – Offenes Kulturhaus, 6.30 pm
  • The first part of the event is a short hike through the woods on the Pettenfirst. We strongly recommend bringing solid shoes. If you are handicaped and need a transfer to the top, please give us a call at 0043/0699/17781560.
  • The hausruck-area is not known for its friendly weather, so please bring some warm clothes. We will provide blankets just in case, but your own sweater is probably more comfortable.
  • Of course you will be transferred back to Linz. You will get information on this during your ride to the Pettenfirst.
  • If you decide to make a reservation, you will receive an email containing your reservationcode. You need this code, or the email, to board the bus. You have to be at one of the meetingpoints at 6:15 pm. Your reservation is only valid until this time, if you are late, you have to wait if there are seats left.
  • It is possible to get to this event on your own. Find infos on how to get there here.

    We wish you a pleasant trip to the Hausruck and an amazing experience!
