Accommodation & Meals

Incantato‘s Hospitality Managers takes pride in working only with pre-inspected hotels that fit your budget and selected restaurants frequented by locals. We offer the students the opportunity to stay overnight in the former dormitories now youth guest house of the Benedictine Abbey of Göttweig - an amazing experience that also helps to lower the overall cost. Hotel accommodation can be provided for parents and guests during those nights (extra cost applies).

Cultural exchanges

Incantato encourages your group to interact with like-minded people and their organizations in Europe and we are uniquely qualified to set up meet & greet events with audiences, school exchanges and joined concerts.
