Dreynevent 2022: CANCELLED!

Unfortunately, we have bad news:

We tried everything, planned and worked on the Dreynevent 2022 until the very end. As you probably know, we put all our heart and soul into this event... But we have reached a point where we have to admit: Unfortunately, we cannot hold the Dreynevent in 2022. The current legal requirements in Austria do not allow an event of this size and given the expected worsening of the situation in the next few weeks, we no longer have any hope of being able to organize the event safely.

Unfortunately, there is not enough time to organize an online variant as we went all in for a live event in 2022. So for the first time, there will be no Dreynevent in 2022. We are so terribly sorry, but we don't see any other option at the moment. Oli found the right words for this situation: We know the decision is right, but it feels like defeat.

We will transfer the fees back to everyone who has already bought their ticket in the next few days, please be aware that this can take up to four weeks depending on your credit institute or bank.

We would like to thank all our trainers and all of you from the bottom of our hearts for your trust and support!

Stay healthy, stay strong and we hope that we will finally see each other again in Vienna in 2023.

Yours, Dreynschlag.


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.


You can find us at Wexstraße 19-23, 1200 Vienna
