Welcome to the official Page of the Western Regional Congress 2019

In April of 2019 EGEA Vienna organises the Western Regional Congress surrounding the Topic “White Gold – Empire of Ice and Salt” nowhere else but in Sankt Gilgen in the beautiful Salzkammergut in Austria. The high occurrence of salt shapes the whole region sustainably and brought privilege to its inhabitants. Therefore it is no surprise that salt is also referred to as “White Gold.”

We are excited to invite you and explore the “chambers of salt” together, focusing on topics of human and economical geography, as well as physical geography and GIS! This includes adventurous hikes up the surrounding mountains, exploring salt production sites or visiting mass tourism hot spots.


Are you ready for the coolest and saltiest Congress in EGEA history?

Keep up with us for further and more detailed information coming up in the next view months and do not hesitate to contact us via !
