It is a real investment in the future: The new building enables the school to continue to offer the growing number of pupils – currently around 550 children and young people attend the grammar school – an attractive and modern school infrastructure and an optimal learning environment Offer.
“Vision started with a dream”

These eight years were formative for me and decisive for my career.”
Jürgen Rathmayr, director of the Stiftsgymnasium, was particularly proud of the successful new building: “The vision began five years ago with a dream. Now the dream has become reality. At the time I didn’t think it would be possible. But giving up was never a dream Alternative. The school association invested an incredible amount of time in the project. You are my heroes.”
