Event Description

At the European Salon we warmly invite our expanding circle of friends – dialogue and change practitioners with diverse professional backgrounds – to share questions, ideas, fears, passion and experiences. It will be an experimental meeting where every participant can consider himself or herself being a leader!

The conference language is English, but national languages, where agreed, can be used in the dialogues.

We – an international group of World Café practitioners – are going to provide just enough structure to hold a space for action learning before, during and after the Salon. We will slow down to invite experiential learning and use a variety of creative media like graphic recording, photography, dance and meditation.

The costs are 560 € for single and 520 € for double room (per person). These fees include rooms, food, drinks and conference space (370 €), conference materials (50 €) and organization fees (140 €).

Space is limited to 40, so register immediately to secure your participation.

Please send your reservations to both and
Please contact one of us for further information and visit our website which is now ready!

Thanks, we are looking forward to seeing you soon at the European Salon!

Hi Ulrich,

That looks like a terrific place to do World Café. Looking forward to hear more about (perhaps in Dresden;-)).

Hi out there,
I am back from Austria where I spent some days with my family in the area of Reichenau an der Rax.
This is how the landscape looks like:

Here is the hotel:

And one of the salons:

and another one ...

The garden of the hotel:

Just over the street the landscape looks like this:

On the neighbor's house I found this wonderful motto (which means: Everyone is so right!)

And I discovered something that must be a think tank:

In short, a very inspiring and hospitable space.
What do you think?

Fantastic, Ulrich! I can't wait to see the photos!

Hi all, I am on summer vacation in Austria with my family and we have visited Reichenau an der Rax and the Hotel Marienhof. In short: It is a wonderful place to host e European Salon! The landscape is wonderful – but you will need to stay a little longer to have a chance to explore it.

The hotel itself is breathing the spirit of old KUK Donau Monarchie, with plenty of space inside and outside to have conversations. I'll upload some pictures as soon as I'll be back in Dresden.
