On April 24th the Vienna City Marathon (VCM) will take place for the 39th time. As Austria’s biggest sporting event, the Marathon is not only a fixed point of the domestic running scene but has also become a brand with high popularity and international appeal.
Marathon in Vienna
More than 31,000 runners will take part in the marathon this year. From the start at the Vienna International Center, the running route leads past numerous spectators, including the town hall and thus in the immediate vicinity of our Hotel Zipser. Until the impressive finish in front of the Vienna Burgtheater, there is pure fascination. The Vienna City Marathon has been organized annually since 1984 and attracts runners on the streets of Vienna. Take part or join the participants along the route. You should not miss this spectacle!
Cultural pleasures and Running
The 42,195 km long marathon route was deliberately designed in such a way that the runners from all over the world pass by numerous famous sights of the Austrian capital. So this running event is not only a sporting experience, but also a cultural experience. But be careful: Many runners lose valuable seconds when they want to see the sights in the preliminary course.
