The Fröhlich Magic Festival takes place every 2nd weekend in September in Bad Aussee, Austria. 

The festival is named after Joseph Fröhliche, who was born in Altaussee in 1694 and achieved great fame as a juggler and magician at the court of Augustus the Strong in Dresden. In addition to his art, he was always a socially committed person and economically very successful as a miller.

International magic galas take place here every year. Every second year, this is combined with a specialist congress at which around 400 magicians from all over the world come to Bad Aussee to exchange ideas. In addition to seminars, workshops and magic galas, there is also an international magic competition, which is certified by the World Federation of Magic FISM and can be the ticket to world and European championships. 

Bad Aussee is situated 1 hour from Salzburg in the middle of the lake district of the Salzkammergut and Ausseerland. Millions of tourists visit this area every year because of its beauty. The combination of mountains and lakes has its own magic. In Aussee, traces of salt extraction can be traced back to the Bronze Age. Salt is still actively mined here today.

In April 2021, the press was full of reports of these four artists who marscched over 550 km on foot to be able to perform again in the pandemic. A demonstration to show that even seemingly impossible things can be achieved if you only want them and fight for them. The cultural scene supported them in this. This programme came into being on the trip.

The artists, who normally perform very successfully with their solo programmes in theatres, are on stage together for once!
