Travel Information

The workshop will take place at Obergurgl University Center, a place with an almost 60-year-long tradition of sport and science. Located 1940 meters above sea level, the center is right by the ski slopes and just five minutes from the heart of the village. 

The historical buildings have been carefully refurbished and are equipped with the latest technical systems. In close vicinity, one finds one of Europe´s finest Biosphere Parks and the Ötz Valley glaciers.
