Information Sign

Originally, there was a plaque with the text:
Gustav Mahler
1860 – 1911
Der geniale Komponist brauchte für seine Inspiration die Ruhe der Natur. Ideal fand er sie in Klagenfurt-Maiernigg am Wöthersee, wo er sich 1900 seine Villa und sein Komponierhäuschen bauen ließ. Hier schuf er in den Sommermonaten bis 1907 seine Hauptwerke.
