Literature, Art and Culture
The Ibsen documentation in the Gossensass town hall gives an insight into the creativity of the modern author.
Numerous artists and writers made their way to Italy across the Brenner. Goethe and Heine traversed the pass on their Italian travels. Hans Christian Andersen describes his “crossings” more than once: from the first trip by stagecoach to the final one by rail. During the era of genteel tourism, Henrik Ibsen, Arthur Schnitzler and Hugo von Hofmannsthal, amongst others, spent their holidays in Gossensass.
