The forest training centre Traunkirchen is located in Upper Austria. Its main role is to offer initial and further theoretical and practical education for people in the forestry industry and for people interested in forests. Students from agricultural and forestry based schools take advantage of special course offers that fall within the area of their professional training. As well as forestry educational options (e.g. skilled forest worker courses, master of forestry courses or harvester driving courses), the forestry training centre Traunkirchen offers a wide range of forestry seminars covering all current issues in forest and ecosystem management.
Participants of “Forests in Women’s Hands” are kindly requested to make their own accommodation arrangements. The region is a popular tourist destination and early booking is highly recommended.
The organizing team will reserve a room contingent in hotels and accommodations in the region for this purpose. A list of accommodation options will be provided on this page in good time. You can then make reservations using the reservation code "Wald in Frauenhänden".
