The 5th “Schwimm Festival Neusiedler See”, or the “Lake Neusiedler Swim Festival”, is the largest open water race in Austria, with over 600 swimmers.

The race is located in the wine region of Austria, surrounded by vineyards that make some of the finest wines in Austria. Specifically the race is held in a beautiful national park, in the biggest steppe lake in central Europe.Given all of the distances offered this event is very accommodating for all skill and experience levels (500m, 1k, 1.9k, 3.5k crossing, 5k).The events are held over a 3 day period so that swimmers can take part in more than one event, but also enjoy all that the immediate area has to offer, which if plentiful.
The new 3,5 km race, “Illmitz-Morbisch Lake Crossing” is on the second day of the Swim Festival . On Saturday morning at 9.30 it revives an old classic across-the-lake-race! It will start with a scenic transport by boat to Illmitz. The crossing Illmitz – Mörbisch represents a demanding 3,5 k distance. It is a challenge for everybody because of steady wind but the scenerie targeting the big amphitheater is incredible.

On Saturday evening there will be a big side event with a famous midyear party in the wineries of Mörbisch having a great view across the lake.

On Sunday morning the 5 km Event: Around the Island takes place. It represents a scenic route around an Island close to the Hungarian boarder. It starts and ends in the arena of Mörbisch with the big amphitheater as a famous backdrop. Your friends and family can accompany the first swimmers with a boat trip, offering a sponsored breakfast while watching your heros.
