Next year's program includes art historical exhibitions such as about the depiction of nature, flora and fauna in the work of Lucas Cranach the Elder (15th/16th century) at the Tiroler Landesmuseum 'Ferdinandeum' (2 March - 7 October 2018)
or culture shows like 'Frischluft? Freiheit! Fahrrad!' (transl. 'Fresh Air? Freedom! Bicycle!') at Museum im Zeughaus (4 May 2018 - 6 January 2019) on occasion of the road cycling event 'UCI - Union Cycliste Internationale Road World Championships' (from 22 to 30 September 2018 in the Austrian alps). It's announced that the exhibition 'Fresh Air? Freedom! Bicycle!' spans from technology- and culture- historical aspects to contemporary transport- and social-political questions of cycling.
