The conference buildings of the Academy in Munich-Schwabing are the Kardinal-Wendel-Haus, the Viereckhof and Suresnes Castle .

Young Academy

As a young academy , the Catholic Academy also offers its own events for young adults. Its aim is to create an open and interactive forum for discussion and dialogue that goes beyond everyday university and professional life and addresses issues at the interface between science, society, church and faith. The offer ranges from study days and trips to workshops and interdisciplinary student holiday academies.

The Academy has been publishing the magazine zur debatte since 1970 , which appears in seven to eight issues a year. With 12,000 subscribers, the magazine claims to be one of the largest Catholic magazines in German-speaking countries.
