Venue for the scientific programme

On a beautiful mountain plateau between the Wipptal valley and Stubaital valley, the small Austrian village of Mutters offers an unspoilt landscape just a short drive south of Innsbruck. The village is located at an altitude of 830 meters above sea level, surrounded by breath taking mountains all around. High above towers the mighty Nockspitze (2,404 m) and the cosy Mutterer Alm hut. In summer the alpine region is a paradise for sports enthusiasts, bikers and mountaineers. Visitors interested in local history can visit the Schupfenwirt, the general headquarter of Andreas Hofer, leader of the Tyrolean freedom fighters who successfully defended their homeland against Napoleonic troops in 1809. On hot summer days there is no better place to cool off than in the village’s own open-air swimming pool or the nearby Lake Natterer See. On the doorstep: One of Europe's best Bike Park. Every year top riders from all over the world come together and compete in downhill races and show their best long jumps.
