With the dirndl in the lake

Was the motto on Saturday in the Seestüberl to the water park. Here the fun was great when ... participants with the funniest figures in dirndl garb jumped into the natural pool of Russbach.

HeuART means cohesion of a whole region!

She was the chairwoman of the HeuART Association for over 20 years and with tireless dedication, a lot of heart and an unbelievable pool of energy she accompanied and managed the HeuART Festival for many years and gathered and guided all the participating people.
