Barrier-free access to Hotel Kongress

Holidays for everyone in Leoben

Being located in the city center, Hotel Kongress offers ideal conditions for all guests.

We have been adapting our hotel to meet our guests’ special needs for many years. We have been trying to change architectural barriers and to find individual solutions. These kinds of solutions were even certified in August 2022 by the federal state Styria.

Regular evaluation helps us to adapt our services and to take further action, when it comes to making our hotel accessible to everyone.
