Hypomeeting Gotzis – a Unique Athletics Experience for Fans:
For 44 years the alpine village of Gotzis has been host to what has become the premier multi-event competition outside of the annual championship events. Taking place in the early weeks of the summer it is, more often than not, the venue where the elite multi-event athletes make their full 7 or 10 event start to their competitive season in preparation for the major championships. In the heptathlon British athletes have been multiple winners with Jessica Ennis-Hill a three times victor and Katarina Johnson-Thompson winning in 2014. The feedback from clients about this event has been universally positive as a “must see” competition for all true athletics fans. The proximity to the action and athletes in the intimate dramatic alpine venue stadium and the charming town of Bregenz, and especially the excellent family owned 4* Germania hotel all combine to make a delightful weekend. Bregenz on Lake Constance is 25 mins on our transfer bus to / from the stadium. This resort town has a cable car into the mountains and many boats and ferries cross the lake.
