The main aim of our work is to offer high quality of living, the promotion of interpersonal communication, a relaxed atmosphere, and good companionship.

Hiking together with Friends

This year the dorm hike goes to the Große Raabklamm. The Große Raabklamm is the longest gorge in Austria. We start our hike through the Raabklamm in the idyllic Arzberg. Between Arzberg and Mortantsch, it forms the 12-kilometer Great Raab Gorge, which is difficult to access and has therefore remained a true natural paradise. It is a beautiful water hiking trail and a natural paradise!
Sturdy shoes, rain protection, enough water to drink and food.

The date will be announced later.
