The best place for fruitful discussions and great output

The decision to choose this place for the S4SSS is not surprising. Past experiences revealed the positive influence the surrounding landscape had on the motivation of the participants. Theory and practical experiences merge to create a unique and productive dynamic. The students are so close to the natural forces that make their theoretical studies real.

Especially for students not living in mountainous areas, Obergurgl holds a special fascination. Mountains up to +3000m, dozens of glaciers, impressive waterfalls and many other highlights imprint in the student’s minds, and influence their future career 😉

A modern state-of-the-art center meets alpine flair

Historically, the University-Center of Obergurgl was a collection of toll houses along the Timmelsjoch track. In the year 2004, today’s rector Univ.-Prof. Dr. Tilmann Märk initiated the transformation of the buildings from a simple research station to a multifunctional research center usable for research, congress and conference purposes.
