Seminars in Hochsteiermark

Every region of Hochsteiermark has its special charm. While the Mariazellerland region is a well-known pilgrimage destination, the Waldheimat region is popular with fans of famous Austrian writer Peter Rosegger, and the Hochschwab mountain range is a paradise for nature lovers. The seminar locations between Mariazell and Bruck an der Mur are just as varied as the region itself. Whether it’s city hotels or seminar venues surrounded by nature: Hochsteiermark offers something for every taste.

Our tip: Hochsteiermark is also a great destination for team events. For instance, did you know that you can go donkey trekking, canyoning, rafting or climbing there? Or how about joining a herbal hike including a workshop with fascinating facts on all kinds of plants, ranging from mountain pines to horseradish? Or trying forest bathing or a yoga retreat?

Seminars in a central location

The advantage of event locations in the city centre is their excellent accessibility by public transport. In the towns and cities of Hochsteiermark, you can find event locations in different sizes, ranging from rooms at traditional inns to big halls for several hundred people, and from Roanwirt to Hotel Böhlerstern.

  • If you’re looking for a small yet charming event venue, we recommend Restaurant Schicker in Kapfenberg with its seminar room for 40 persons.
  • For slightly bigger events, there‘s AKTIVHOTEL Weißer Hirsch or Hotel Drei Hasen in Mariazell.
  • Fans of art and culture will love the event location of kunsthaus muerz in Mürzzuschlag with a capacity of up to 400 guests.
  • For events with up to 200 guests, Raiffeisensaal in Mariazell is a great choice.
