Forecast

High pressure is continuing to build across the region, but before the sun can do its work it has to chase away the last clouds. Brighter weather will break through before midday.

Tendency

Slowly but surely we have to mentally prepare for more unstable weather. Already by Tuesday, it will begin to change with thunderstorms.

Famous author, playwright and doctor

Karl Schönherr from Axams

The plays “Glaube und Heimat” (Faith and Homeland – 1910) and “Der Weibsteufel” (The She-Devil – 1914) have long been counted amongst the most well-known theatre pieces from the southern part of the German-speaking world. However, Karl Schönherr was also active and influential in many other areas. His legacy can still be seen today in the bronze plaque mounted on the house where he was born in Axams, in the name of the local school (“Karl-Schönherr-Sprengelhauptschule”) and in the local street that also bears his name.

Karl Schönherr (born 24 February 1867 in Axams, died 15 March 1943 in Vienna) was the son of the village teacher. Medicine was actually the first thing that caught his interest and he worked as a doctor for many years after being awarded the title of Dr. med. He later became a successful playwright and author thanks to his humorous stories of everyday rural life, which were widely read and performed both in his own lifetime and long afterwards.

In addition to “Glaube und Heimat” and “Der Weibsteufel”, another of his best-known works is “Die Erde” (Earth) from 1907. Today, Karl Schönherr rests in a grave of honour in Vienna’s central cemetery but traces of his work and influence can still be found in the village of Axams.
