Dreynevent 2022: SOLD OUT!

Unfortunately (for you) we're all booked out, let's hope you'll make it for Dreynevent 2023!


Dear Friends of Dreynschlag and Dreynevent! We have some excellent news for you today: Dreynevent 2022 will happen!

Abiding by current law and with a strong covid prevention concept, it will be possible to enjoy the Dreynevent in person. There will be a few minor changes here and there, but all in all it will be a Dreynevent like the years before the pandemic. Please note that you will need to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 to attend Dreynevent, so better go and set up a vaccination appointment if you’re not vaccinated yet.

At the moment (mid november 2021) the Covid-19 case numbers are going up rapidly in Austria. The government just issued new rules for events bigger than 25 attendees: additionaly to the vaccination it is now also necessary to be tested negatively with a PCR-test that is no older than 48 hours. There are free testing options available for tourists in Vienna (follow this link for more information: Testing options and to-dos in the event of an infection. This is the testing option nearest to the event location: GoogleMaps).
You will have to bring a valid PCR-test certificate when you arrive at the event. Since the test is only valid for 48 hours, please also plan for another test in Vienna over the course of the event weekend (see the link above).

Also keep an eye on our facebook and instagram pages to see the announcements of upcoming trainers for the Dreynevent!


International HEMA-event in Vienna/Austria

Dreynevent is an event for Historical European Martial Arts taking place in Vienna since 2004. We provide workshops and lectures with instructors from all over Europe as well as a longsword tournament. This event is organized by “Sportunion – Die Liechtenauer Fechter” also known as “Dreynschlag“. See you in Vienna in February!


We want you to have a pleasant stay in Vienna


Since the very first event in 2004 we have a very good cooperation with a youth hostel in the 20th district of Vienna close to the event facility.

Guided tours

First time in Vienna, not too familiar with our city or just don't want to go on your own? We provide guided tours on Friday and on Saturday from the youth hostel to the evening location.

Evening locations

Hungry and thirsty after all day fencing? Want to make new friends in the HEMA community? Join our evening events on Friday, Saturday and Sunday!

First aid

Every fencer knows: Unfortunately injuries happen sometimes. Therefore we have an experienced doctor at the training facility.


Please only visit us by car if public transport is absolutely not possible! We can only provide a very limited number of parking lots at the Dreynevent-Facility, so better don't be too late if you bring a car...

Public transportation

Travelling by plane or train? The training facility, evening locations and the youth hostel can be easily reached by public transport.
