Events in Styria

Events in Leoben

Combine IRFC, Area 53 & Gösser Kirtag with a stay at Hotel Kongress

In Styria, conviviality and community are very important. Leoben is no exception. After work, locals and guests meet in the city's numerous restaurants and bars and enjoy their free time. Whether outdoors or indoors – in Leoben there is always a place to meet up with friends.
Traditionally, the students of the Montan University have been an important factor in the social life of the mining city of Leoben. Academic life and the associated traditions and festivities are an integral part of Leoben's events.
In addition to other traditional events, such as the Oberlander Kirtag or the Gösser Kirtag, several other major events have developed into true classics in recent years and are fixed starters every year.
Since 2022, the city has had a state-of-the-art event center, Live Congress Leoben, which also sets the stage for many events.

Simply closer - your hotel in the center of Leoben

As a guest at Hotel Kongress, you benefit in several ways. In the heart of the city, just a a short distance from the main square, you will always be right in the middle of the action in no time. The city center and the university district can be reached on foot in a few minutes. Hotel guests enter the Live Congress Leoben directly from the breakfast room via the hotel's own direct access.
