The road leading to the castle in Lockenhaus, Austria, has been named after Gidon Kremer, the founder of the Lockenhaus Chamber Music Festival. The violinist started this festival in 1981 and made Lockenhaus famous, the City Councel noted in the decision. In 2012, Gidon Kremer, honorary citizen of Lockenhaus, ended his tenure as Artistic director and cellist Nicolas Altstaedt became his successor.
