As the event name suggests, we are going to spend a full weekend in the Austrian outdoors! This country is known for being covered in mountains, so this is the most Austrian experience we can offer!
We organized a weekend in the Austrian Alps, to find peace, build new connections and spike your adrenaline levels. Before the exam period starts and your student exchange experience comes to an end.
For this event, we chose the scenic area of the Gesäuse (have a look for yourself) in North Styria, more or less in the center of Austria! It’s a pictorial national park, that is fondly nicknamed one of Austria’s gems by locals.
The highlight of this weekend will be on Sunday, our action day. Where you can choose one of these amazing activities.
Did you ever want to climb a rock wall?
You dreamt of floating down a white water river?
You like it a bit more relaxed?

To finish off this exciting weekend in the mountains, we will go to a mountain lake for a swim!
