Welcome to Breitenbrunn at lake Neusiedl, the venue of the Laser 4.7 European Championship and Trophy 2012.
Once again, the lake Neusiedl hosts a top-class international sailing championship. In its long history of sailing regattas, many sailors have already enjoyed this outstanding location, known for its challenging wind conditions and beautiful scenery.
But not only fans of water sport are attracted to the second largest steppe lake in Europe, but many tourists enjoy the lake and the surrounding region, which is one of the most beautiful wine and castle-regions in Europe. Thanks to the pannonian climate, the region counts more than 300 days of sun per year. The best way to explore the area is by cycling on the 500 km long cycling paths around the lake. Discover the story of many interesting sights and reward yourself in one of the many "Buschenschanken" on the way. These local taverns offer locally produced food and especially wines of the internationally famous wine region around the lake Neusiedl.
The thermal springs in the area also invite the guest to relax and indulge themselves, for example at the St. Martins Spa and thermal resort.
Popular, in particular with the younger visitors of the Burgenland, is the Leisure and Familypark St. Margareten. Its variety of roller coasters, climbing facilities, petting zoo and restaurants are a fun experience for the whole family.
Another point of interest is the cultural capital Eisenstadt, a lovely baroque city on the southern hillside of the Leitha Mountains, where the composer Josef Hayden wrote many of his internationally famous compositions.
On top of the cultural, sport and recreational attractions, the shopping center "Outlet Center Parndorf" offers great facilities for shopping.
As demonstrated in this overview, the region around the lake Neusiedl offers something for everyone, and thus guarantees a unique holiday experience for all its visitors.
We wish you a pleasant stay as well as good luck, fair competitions and a great event for all competitors!
