WHAT IS THE CHALLENGE?

X-WATERS Vienna 2020 is a stage of the X-WATERS 2020 World Championship.

Experience a swim in the heart of Vienna! What a great place to visit and a unique place to swim.

The "Beautiful Blue Danube", to which Johann Strauss dedicated his famous waltz, will become the main location for a large-scale swim. And the truth is that the New Danube, the man-made channel of the great river, has blue waters. A quiet and clean river in the summer turns into a so-called Vienna Sea, and its entire coastline becomes one long beach.

The New Danube is separated from the main river by a long narrow island of Donauinsel. A 21-km distance will stretch along it - this is one of the longest mass swims of Europe. Satellite distances are no less impressive, they will also be located along the canal, and you will be able to enjoy Vienna landscapes from a completely different perspective.

Together with X-WATERS, you will discover not only a classic competition, but also an event saturated with the spirit of challenge, as well as the most friendly open water community in the world.
Join the participants chat in Telegram (open it on your phone, the application should be pre-installed).

VIENNA SEA - NEW DANUBE

The Danube in Vienna is a very complex system. The New Danube was created in the 1970s to ensure the outflow of water during floods. Then an artificial island, the 21-kilometer Donauinsel, was built to separate the new river from the old one. Therefore the water exchange in the New Danube is more intense, and the water quality here is many times better.

All this man-made system is now a recreational area. This is one of the largest green recreation areas in Europe. There are equipped beaches with changing rooms, showers, pools and cafes, places for swimming, running and all kinds of outdoor activities. It offers beautiful views of the city and the modern district of Danube City. We recommend swimmers to stay here and enjoy food, drinks and live music performed by Vienna best DJs.

All in all - the river, infrastructure and the unique charm and energy of the Austrian capital - become an excellent stage for a vibrant international swimming event X-WATERS Vienna. This is a sports weekend that you will definitely remember!

For Volunteers

If you are not swimming yourself, you can become part of a swim team as a volunteer. This is a very important role! It is the volunteers who create the mood, convey the spirit of the event, and make it all possible. Believe us, the energy that you get from the participants is incomparable to anything! Here, in Austria, volunteers who speak Russian or English will help us a lot. However, it is very important that in order to become part of our team, you should be either an EU citizen or a work / business visa holder. In Austria, they are very serious about that... If this is about you - please contact us!
