Tourism Schools Bad Gleichenberg

Tourism Schools Bad Gleichenberg are among the world’s best and offer excellent qualifications to start an outstanding career. They have been internationally known since 1946 as the private education institution for tourism in Austria.

Touristic, economic, digital subjects, sustainability, innovation management, entrepreneurship, future topics and social skills as well as communication and languages are at the centre of attention. Thanks to internships and on-the-job trainings at international events as the Kitzbühel Downhill race or Bayern München Champion League matches, an ideal combination of theoretical and practical skills is offered. Almost 7,000 graduates are successfully working in more than 150 countries at present.


The programme will offer four academic talks with tourism experts on the following topics:

  • challenges and opportunities of the tourism industry
  • best practice examples – excursions to local touristic flagship companies
  • worldwide tourism on equal terms – closing the gap between poor and rich
  • less is more – new ideas in tourism
  • revolutionary concepts of learning – new education of new people

In addition to the exciting discussions, there will also be an extensive sightseeing programme to get to know the region, its distinctive cuisine and its traditions as well as the world capital of culture Graz. Your partner is sincerely welcome and will be included with a comprehensive leisure programme (sport, culinary, thermal spa, etc.).
