The Gais Culture Path leads over the stream divide to Neuhaus Castle and is the perfect invitation to meditating or just lounging around. Along the path, artists have installed works with which prominent personalities are acknowledged who formerly lived and worked in Gais. They are the troubadour Oswald von Wolkenstein, American poet Ezra Pound, his daughter Mary de Rachewiltz, and the sculptors Heinrich and Franz Bacher. At the same time, for attentive observers the path presents itself as an enrichment for the soul, a silent bit of happiness in an increasingly loud world. Even though its total length is two kilometers (a mile and a quarter), at many places there is a clear view of the former Gais scree cone, of the village itself with its Romanesque church, and of the facing hill on which the majestic remnants of the Chela-Kehlburg fortress stand.
