About us

Welcome to the website of HLF KREMS

Over the last decades HLF Krems has earned the reputation of being amongst the leading tourism schools in Austria and Europe laying the perfect foundation for successful careers in the tourism, hospitality and leisure industry. The road to success is determined by our approach of combining theoretical subjects with work-based learning experience. On the one hand, our students acquire key skills and key knowledge in classroom education, in which we place utmost importance on the development of our students’ foreign language skills. On the other hand, they get vital hands-on practice both in school and their industry internship in summer. A team of highly motivated professional teachers and industry experts make every effort to ensure an outstanding education and support students’ personal development and growth.

We offer the following programs:

  • Five-year program leading to the “Reife-und Diplomprüfung”; perfect for those who want to continue their studies at a “Fachhochschule” or a university; the curriculum imparts subjects of general education, commercial subjects, foreign languages and practical subjects
  • Three-year program leading to a practical diploma exam; perfect for those who want to start working in the business; very practically oriented with a focus on pastry and coffee
  • Four semester program directed to upper secondary graduates or applicants having passed the entrance exam who are interested in a vocational training in tourism

For students who don’t live in or around Krems we offer a students’ residence where they have the opportunity of creating a home away from home. Comfortable living space is provided in each of the 84 double or triple bedrooms. Students share tea kitchens, a spacious common room and a glazed loggia. In addition, there is a lounge for all boarders where they can spend their free time socializing or doing sports. They enjoy playing table tennis, table football, pool, darts, etc. They also love spending time in the music, club or fitness room or take part in regular sports activities organized by our trained, caring and dedicated staff. The price of the students’ residence includes full-board. All boarders are provided with an extensive and varied breakfast buffet, lunch (choice of meat or vegetarian dish & salad buffet) and dinner. All in all, the students’ residence is a place where our boarders really feel comfortable.
