Obergurgl University Center
All delegates of Graphene Study will stay in twin or triple bed rooms
(Single rooms may be available upon request with an extra charge) at the Obergurgl University Center.
Its history goes back to 1951, when three former customs buildings were converted for use by the Obergurgl federal Sports Center and Innsbruck University's Alpine Research Center. That marked the beginning of a focus on sports and science with international participation. Famous mountain guides, ski instructors and researchers worked here and made many major contributions to sports and science in the Alps.
