Institute of Tourism and Hotel Management

Founded in 1965, the Institute of Tourism and Hotel Management Klessheim provides formal education for professionals in the tourism and hospitality industry.

Since 1965, the Institute of Tourism and Hotel Management has developed a worldwide reputation of the highest hospitality education. Our international programs are designed to give practical and modern management knowledge to empower our students for international careers. Limited numbers of scholarships are being provided by the Austrian Development Agency (ADA) every year.

Over 2500 students have been awarded the international diploma.
A three months industrial placement is possible after completing the diploma program.

Today the city of Salzburg attracts visitors from all over the world. The baroque city is rightfully proud of both its UNESCO World Heritage Site status and its title as the „City of Mozart“, thanks to being Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart´s birthplace.

Every year students from around the world take home invaluable knowledge and experience from the longstanding traditions of tourism and tourism education in Salzburg.
