Some of the competitors compete all 3 days and enjoy the evening charity programm or midsummer festival around the big fire.
6,2 k open water is the king discipline but there are other demanding distances like the classical crossing for 3,2 k and 1,9 k/1 k to compete with professional swimmers & triathletes. The event starts with a charity race and evening with music acts of the Seefestspiele Mörbisch.
Especially nice are the boat trip accompanying the crossings 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!
