Les Thermes – Opening

Congress Centrum Alpbach
Culture /
German and English language

Immerse yourself in the philosophical way of thinking, body and mind: we will have a spacious pool ready for you on the roof of the Congress Centre. In it, you will find 25,000 black balls, each of them printed with an aphorism from the School of Stoicism. Our contemporary take on an antique thermal bath throws into relief the fast pace of the Forum. Here, you will find a place to linger and contemplate, a space for open discourse!
