Architectural treasures: Meeting locations with that certain something

Extraordinary event spaces that you will remember for a long time

Creativity is a value that is hard to measure, but it can be stimulated with the right influence. In these event spaces beyond sober hotel aesthetics, special architectural features allow for extraordinary ideas and splendid sights after work is finished. We have selected the most interesting MICE venues for you, from the Lipizzaner stud farm to a cruise ship. 

The Jakobskreuz

You want to take your ideas to the next level and would like more vision and a different perspective? Then why not hold your next corporate event at the Jakobskreuz. In lofty heights of 1,456 metres, the world's largest accessible summit cross awaits you on the peak of the Tirolean Buchensteinwand. Your guests will definitely have some breakthrough ideas up here. In four rooms flooded with natural light, let your gaze wander between the 60-inch screens and the Kitzbühel Alps, the Lofer and Leogang mountains and the Steinplatte mountain. You will be well looked after with snacks, fruit and drinks, likewise when you visit the restaurant “Das Weitblick” at the mountain station. Apropos panoramic views:  To enjoy the views for even longer, simply extend your stay. The four-star Naturhotel Kitzspitz or the Boutique-Hotel Unterlechner look forward to your visit. Would you like to attend a team-building event to grow closer together with your guests? Besides hikes, it's best to plan a guided tour of the world's oldest mountain pine oil distillery, Josef Mack, in St. Ulrich am Pillersee and learn all about the historic craft there. 

MS Linzerin

Ever held a meeting on a ship? No? Then turn your next corporate event into an unforgettable open-air event on the MS Linzerin and let the power of water inspire you. The gentle swell of the Danube has a decelerating and inspiring effect, and beautiful views of the Upper Austrian capital are guaranteed, too. Up to 130 people can clear their minds all at the same time on the sun deck, while the inner deck with banquet-style seating can accommodate 220 participants including their ideas. Delicious meals from the on-board kitchen, ranging from small snacks to whole menus and a variety of buffets recharge your guests' batteries in no time at all, while first-class multimedia equipment helps them brainstorm: flat screens, a retractable screen, projectors and a public address system leave nothing to be desired. Your event extends over several days? Then an ideal option for an overnight stay is the elegant Arcotel Nike right next to the central pier. Nothing stands in the way for your workshop, seminar or conference to now take place on the water. 

Red Bull Ring

Dynamic, extraordinary and always at the cutting edge – if these are also the core characteristics of your company, use this special MICE location in Styria to provide innovative ambience at your next corporate event. At the Red Bull Ring choose from a total of 58 rooms, of which 19 can be used for conferences. Would you like to hold a meeting on a grand scale? The Red Bull Wing meeting room, which is modelled like the rear wing of a racing car, holds 500 people in its 1,400 square metres. The possibilities here are almost endless: from small team-building events to large trade fairs, each of your ideas will find the right space – and naturally the right equipment, too. Modern technology, from projector and screen to sound system and microphone to stage and podium, are of course all at your disposal. As an exclusive service provider, the Red Bull Ring provides a delicious pit stop and offers various bookable packages for this purpose. You plan to hold a multi-day event extending over several days? With a total of 132 rooms, the nearby Tauroa Hotels offer sufficient space and plenty of comfort for your guests. 

Spanish Riding School – Lipizzaner Stud Farm Piber

Would you rather take your foot off the accelerator and hold a meeting in a peaceful setting with majestic four-legged friends? This is possible in Styria, too. The Lipizzaner stud farm Piber, a noble baroque castle with grand staterooms, a carriage museum and a historic riding arena, is only 30 minutes away from Graz. Five elegantly designed rooms including an open-air area are available here and can be used for all kinds of corporate events such as workshops, dinners, team-building events and press conferences. The technical equipment is as modern as the horse paradise appears to be idyllic. Flip charts with presentation cases are available for smaller seminars, while a projector, screen, microphone and sound system, plus a stage and podium if required, ensure the transmission of information for larger events. From morning to night you will be well catered for at the in-house Café-Restaurant Piber. Will your event last several days or do you simply want to enjoy the idyll of meadows, forests and white horses afterwards? Then the best place to stay is at the cosy Thermenhotel Nova in neighbouring Köflach. An absolute insider tip in the MICE industry! 

Provostry of St. Gerold

The monastery complex of the Provostry of St. Gerold with its thousand-year-old history seems almost like a fairytale. In the midst of the UNESCO Grosses Walsertal Biosphere Reserve, surrounded by forests and meadows and fenced in by the magnificent mountains in Vorarlberg, creativity and relaxation join forces all by themselves. Despite the building's long history, the technical equipment has always been kept up-to-date. Projector, screen, sound system just as a stage and podium are ready to support you during your seminars. The quiet, idyllic surroundings plus 29 cosy guest beds in single and double rooms ensure everyone is refreshed and reenergised the next morning. After you have convened in one of the five rooms, you can take a breather in the herb and vegetable garden of the spacious park, stroll around numerous ponds and find your way back to your centre on the spiritual "Path of the Senses." But you are not only offered spiritual nourishment while you are here. Your culinary wellbeing is assured by snacks served during coffee breaks, while breakfast buffets, three-course lunch menus and four-course dinners await you at the in-house à la carte restaurant complete with terrace. This is a MICE location which has a contemplative effect that is guaranteed to be remembered by you and your guests for a long time.
