Facilities at the school

Schloss Krumbach International School is Austria’s first and only school-castle.

It is located in one of the most beautiful parts of Austria – the Bucklige Welt, a hill country area on the eastern edge of the Alps. Its height varies between 375 and 900 m. The Land of the Thousand Hills received its poetic name because of the very large number of hills and mountains, known by the locals as Buckln.

Nature and sustainability play important roles in the school’s vision. The castle’s unique location allows our students to not only focus on their studies, but also immerse themselves in the amazing views of the Krumbach area and expand their horizons with field research.

Schloss Krumbach International School is located a 50-minute drive from Vienna. The school’s perfect location allows our students to actively participate in all of the Austrian capital’s major cultural events, regularly visit art and natural history museums, the Vienna State Opera and Philharmonic, as well as modern theatres and galleries.

Our campus is a safe space with highly developed infrastructure, round-the-clock security and excellent equipment, modern classrooms, diverse libraries and multifunctional labs.

Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Schloss Krumbach International School (SKIS) is a co-educational boarding school for students of 12-19 years old, located in a 13th Century-built Austrian castle, 90 km from Vienna. We provide high-quality international education throughout Grades 7 to 12 (Middle School and High School) and are the only school in Austria accredited to offer both IB Diploma Programme and UK's A-Level Diploma. We are also a member of the CIS system and take part in the Duke of Edinburgh program.

Our school is small enough to have a truly bespoke offering to each individual student but large enough to provide the finest of challenges and opportunities both within and outside the curriculum. The school is led by a recognised and passionate team of experienced international educators.
