Montanistic City Leoben

Situated at the gateway to the Styrian Eisenstrasse Leoben can look back over a long mining tradition. It is iron and steel that brought prosperity to the region. Now Leoben with its 25,000 inhabitants is a centre where culture, science and research converge. Mining traditions still play an important part in citylife. Examples are the Miners Parade, the St. Barbara Celebration or the Ledersprung ("Leatherjump"). Other components of the vigorous cultural life of the "Mining City" include a revamped museum quarter with famous exhibitions, classical concerts in the Congress Leoben, productions of the Summer Philharmonics in July and performances of localy created and guest productions in the oldest still-running theater in Austria.

Furthermore Leoben is home to Gösser beer – guided tours through the local brewery and brewery museum with an adjacent beer tasting are worth visiting.

Montanistic University of Leoben
The University of Leoben is the country's university for mining, metallurgy, and materials.

It was founded on 4 November 1840, as the Steiermärkisch-Ständische Montanlehranstalt in Styria, Austria's mining region. In 1848 Peter Tunner relocated the university to the nearby town of Leoben, where it is still located today. That year the university had a mere 48 students enrolled. Today more than 3000 students are enrolled in the various fields of studies and the university has developed a reputation as one of the finest mining schools in Europe.
