EuroHash 2017 - The Venue
Finally, with numbers getting clearer and the event coming closer, we have decided on the venue for the main parties. The main events will be in the newly renovated "ANKERBROT EXPEDIT HALLE" in Viennas 10th district. The venue can accomodate a maximum of about 800 people, which means that we have a maximum capacity for the event as of now!

The venue is in Vienna's 10th disctrict, which is south of the city center. We are quite close (about 2000, 25 minutes walk) to the newly build Vienna Hauptbahnhof (Vienna's Main Railway Station) with all the shopping areas and a lot of hotels.
The building itself is about 100 years old and was part of the ANKER Brot AG (Anker Bread Factory), before the first world war Europe's biggest bakery. The hall was built in 1912 and at that time was famous for being one of the biggest column-free halls in Europe. It was used to load the horse-drawn carts to supply Vienna with fresh bread.
In 2009 it was turned into a venue for events of all kind. The hall is located within a big campus that has been built into the old buildings of the factory, nowadays providing a home for galleries, ateliers, offices, etc. (If you are interested, there is a website in German).
In 2016 the venue is going to be renovated and improved and will be ready in time to give a home for EuroHash 2017.
