For over two decades, Philosophicum Lech has been one of Europe’s top addresses for contemporary philosophy and discussions on current political and social upheavals. The Philosophicum Lech offers the perfect setting for discussing and reflecting on major social and political trends in a familiar atmosphere. Internationally renowned philosophers, social critics, politicians, humanists and historians come to Lech every year to attend these discussions or to discuss for themselves on the open stage. The new church in Lech is the ideal venue for discussions in a quiet atmosphere. In 2019, the Philosophicum will be dedicated to the theme “The values of the few. Elites and Democracy”.
