Vorarlberg plays host to the world: The World Gymnaestrada 2019

Inspiringly lively and cosmopolitan: This is the lifestyle in Vorarlberg in western Austria in a nutshell. The location? Ideally situated between Lake Constance and the nearby 3,000-metre peaks. Germany, Switzerland and Liechtenstein are just around the corner.

Many still fondly remember when the World Gymnaestrada first took place in Vorarlberg back in 2007. All of Vorarlberg is looking forward to hosting the colourful international event from 7-13 July 2019 once again. So that everyone feels at ease, considerable investments have been made: This major event has the honour of being the inaugural event held in a completely new sports hall on the grounds of the modern Messe Dornbirn Exhibition Centre. In addition to modernising the stations, the first-class rail and bus network is being optimised with additional vehicles, shortened intervals during the event and personal timetables for each participant.

The preparations are in full swing …

For one week, Vorarlberg will host tens of thousands of athletes, officials and guests from over 50 nations. From the organising committee and the local gymnastics clubs to logistics partners, participants and volunteers: All of them have been working together for years to ensure that this Vorarlberg World Gymnaestrada will be at least as a wonderful spectacle as the first one was. To get an impression of the preparations,

take you behind the scenes and tell how the world’s largest gymnastics festival – as it is called on paper – will become the gymnastics festival of the heart in Vorarlberg.
