Accommodation in Bad Gleichenberg’s university residences

The town is home to a number of partner universities and colleges, specialised in tourism and the independently-owned student residences offer affordable visitor accommodation in the summer months. It should be understood that these residences are designed primarily for students and not children or adults expecting a high level of luxury. However, with this in mind, the halls do meet a level of comfort that we expect most visitors to be happy with, and we will welcome any feedback where this is not the case.

Getting around Bad Gleichenberg

The town enjoys comprehensive rail connections, with frequent trains to Styria's capital city Graz. Graz's airport offers scheduled flights to many European cities, such as Frankfurt, Vienna, London, Rotterdam, Amsterdam, Brussels, Düsseldorf, and Zürich, as well as Hamburg and Dublin. In the main town, the easiest way to get around is the Bad Gleichenberg city bus, which connects the town centre with the railway station, the spa, the grave yard next to the famous Styrassic Park and all other major parts of the village Bad Gleichenberg.

History of Bad Gleichenberg

First traces of settlement are going back to the Neolithic period and are most likely linked to the excellent water quality of the area. Approximately 5,000 years ago, the so far oldest village in the federal state Styria, has arisen on the foot of the “Wickenberg” hill.

The Gleichenberg mineral springs have already been used since the Roman age. In 1845 a well preserved top assembly of a fountain, including 74 roman coins and 12 fossilized hazelnuts from the 1st to the 3rd century A.D were found in the “Roman Fountain”.

The castle Gleichenberg (Alt-Gleichenberg) was first mentioned in 1185 and strategically built in 1170 at the bottleneck of the South exit of the so called “Klausenschlucht”. 1302 the owenership changed from “Herren von Wildon” to the “Walseer” and was in 1945 – at the end of the 2nd World War – completely destroyed. Today the remains of the castle are known as the “Meixnerstube”.
