Lake Neusiedl

The Vindobona Hash House Harriers will be celebrating the 30th Anniversary in Mörbisch on the Lake Neusiedl in Burgenland. This celebration will be on the weekend of 27-29 April 2012 which is almost exactly 30 years from our first Hash on 25 April 1982.

Morbisch-am-See is a beautiful town on the famous Lake Neusiedl, and the lake crosses the border from Austria to Hungary. At one time this border was part of the famous Iron Curtain, but you will cross this border many times on the weekend and hardly notice that it is there! See photo on the right for a view of the lake.

We will be staying at the Hotel Drescher in the centre of Mörbisch (see photo on the left).

This hotel can accommodate 80 Hashers in normal bedrooms (twin bed or double beds). Breakfast and dinner will be at the hotel.

For those that like to dress up, there will be a Theme for Saturday night - to be announced later. Be prepared to be dress appropriately to make most of the fun.

Hotel Drescher
Hotel Drescher - Swimming Pool

The hotel is undergoing renovation during the winter, so we will be one of the first groups to benefit from this work. The hotel has an indoor swimming pool and a small sauna.

Travelling to Mörbisch by public transport is not very easy, involving several changes from train to bus, and takes between 90 minutes and 2 hours.. Check the ÖBB (Austrian State Railway) website for the best connections. Driving from Vienna takes about 1 hour.
