Schwechat is an industrial city, and as a city with an airport it represents a gate to the world. However, Schwechat is also a very green city. Designated the most tree-loving city in Lower-Austria in 2002, Schwechat is a city full of parks and bicycle tracks. The Town Hall Park, the Felmayer Garden and the summer swimming pool are beloved recreation spots within the city. The summer swimming pool of Schwechat is one of the most beautiful of its kind in the area. Two large solar-heated swimming pools, two slides, a minigolf facility, a mother-and-child swimming pool, as well as a beach volleyball field lure you to spend a few good hours in this place. When the weather is unfavourable, you can use the covered swimming pool and its Wellness facilities. In the wintertime you can visit the skating ring, with its weekend ice-disco. Living in Schwechat also offers a multitude of extraordinary sports facilities, open to visitors. The Rudolf Tonn Stadium, the Phönix Square and the leisure-time-centre in Mannswörth invite you to pursue your favourite sports. On the cultural side, events such as The Schwechat City Celebration in the central square, The Magical Christmas Expectation at the Town Hall, The Satire Festival performed by the Forum Theatre or the Jazz Appetizers and the film slide projections in the Felmayer Garden have become beloved traditions. New events, such as the Schwechat Cultural Summer at the Rothmühle Castle, enrich our offer. The Movie Days at the Castle offer an open-air cinema in an ideal environment.
