Touristic Information

The conference takes place in the Salzkammergut area, which enjoys a very nice combination of mountains and lakes, and has a long history of tourism. The conference venue is located at the shore of Wolfgangsee, where you can go for a swim. Nearby Hallstatt is a UNESCO world heritage site on two counts: the prehistoric salt mines and archeological sites on the one hand, and natural beauty on the other hand.
