Hypomeeting Gotzis – a Unique Athletics Experience for Fans:
For 46 years the alpine village of Gotzis has hosted the premier multi-event competition outside of the annual championship events. It is the venue where most elite multi-event athletes make their 7 or 10 event start to their competitive season in preparation for the major championships. In the heptathlon British athletes have been recent multiple winners with Jessica Ennis-Hill a three times victor and Katarina Johnson-Thompson winning in 2014 and 2019. 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 the excellent 4* Germania hotel, all combine to make a delightful weekend. Bregenz on Lake Constance is 20 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 making an extended stay an option that many clients take advantage of every year.
