The 5 th Swim Festival Neusiedler See is the biggest swim event of Austria. It is located in a national parc at the biggest steppe lake of central europ., surounded by vineries with the best red wine in Austria.
The event consists of different competitons appropriate for a wide range of skill level ranging from 5km, 3,5 km Crossing, 1,9 km triathlon distance to 1,0 km and 0,5 km for everybody and beginners. Additonallly, it will be a kids competition.
Some of the competitors compete all 3 days and enjoy the evening charity programm or midsummer festival around the big fire.
5 km open water is the king discipline but the classical crossing for 3,5 km and 1,9 km are options to compete with professional swimmers & triathletes. The event starts with a charity race and evening with music acts of the Seefestspiele Mörbisch.
The GSS announced late december that the 2nd European Championships of the GSS in 2017 will be held in Mörbisch covering the 3,5 km crossing from Illmitz to Mörbisch as well as the 5km distance "Around the Island".
Especially nice are the boat trip accompanying the 5km top competiton and the special tour of the famous Seefestspiele of Mörbisch.
The famous event “Seefestspiele of Mörbisch” is an amazing music and performing arts festival that takes place over the summer and is held in a spectacular 6,000 seat amphitheater right on the shore of Lake Neusiedler! The actual arts festival takes place a little later in the summer, but there is a good chance you could take in some of the private and exclusive rehearsals and get a backstage peek while you are there! It makes for pretty incredible trip, with memorable mix of arts and athletics!
