The Association "Club Alpbach Südtirol/Alto Adige" was founded back in 2005 at a meeting in the Palais. Since then the meetings of the association take place in the Palais. In July the scholarships for the European Forum Alpbach (EFA) 2019 were granted. These scholarships allow students from South Tyrol to participate in the EFA seminars, to get to know the famous "spirit of Alpbach" and to live a true European experience.

Every fortnight our column on EU-affairs appears in the local newspaper "Dolomiten". The Series aims to explain the intricacies of EU-affairs to the general public. In the meantime the column became an established feature of the local press and was now awarded an international journalism prize: the MIDAS prize. The event took place in Flensburg (Schleswig-Holstein). A report can be found here.
It was quite a journey when the over 2 meters high horse was moved from Vienna to Bolzano. Close to half a year the sculpture was admired by thousands of tourists while strolling through Viennas prominent "Graben". The impressive sculpture by Julien Berthier is a fascinating warning against the excesses and danger of nationalism. Now the sculpture - a horse and its sad soldier - are placed in the park of the Palais from where they observe the Palaistalks. A short TV report is available here.
