Last year the world mastership of beachvolleyball took place in Vienna - it was the first big beachvolleyball event in our city. But as it was very successfull, the event managers decided to come back with the event of the Beach Volleyball Major Series Tournament - taking place in early august 2018 at Danube Island, Vienna. So the best 32 teams (men and women) will play for the win.

Not just the austrian people but also the beach volleyball player themselve love the event in Vienna. Now it is taking place for the second time in Vienna - no matter if you are a sport-fan, party-animal or addicted to the sun - you will love it.
Most remarkable is the atmosphere in the stadium that can contain up to 10.000 visitors. A stadium announcer and a live DJ are ensuring best mood during the rallies - and the crowd is partying and supporting all teams with different songs, choreographies or slogans like "That's the way - aha, aha - i like it!" or "Mein Block, Mein Block" (if a block was successfull). But it's not just the mood that is high - the sun is also burning down to the center court and temperatures rise - so from time to time some cheerleaders are cooling down the visitors with water coming out of fire hoses from the stadium roof. We would recommend you to carry you phones in plastic bags as they might get wet. Additionally some volunteers of the event are also handing out free sun hats, sun glasses or other goodies like inflatable fan articles.
Beside the sporty decisions on the sand, the event also offers many different stations at the event area as well as a public viewing screen and many side events.
Starting from our hotel, you can reach the beachvolleyball event by using the "S-Bahn". Enter the train at Praterstern-Station and exit at "Handelskai" - within 5 minutes you will arrive at the desitination and then you have to walk over the bridge to reach Danube Island. We wish you a lot of fun! If you have any open quesitons, don't hesitate to ask us.
