With Seidl Catering we have a highly-experienced partner on board for the catering of the World Gymnaestrada 2019 participants, having been the official caterer for the Austrian House during the last three Olympic Games. For the choice of the offered meals the main focus has been on regional fresh products, healthy, nutritious meals especially created for athletes and the integration of both national and international specialities.

The lunch menu contains ...

  • a menu of the day (alternatively vegetarian menu)
  • a mixed salad
  • variable fruit and dessert offering
  • a beverage (mineral water, fruit juice)

All meals are offered on porcelain plates with proper cutlery in Hall 11, being the exclusive area for serving lunch for the entire duration of the World Gymnaestrada, with seating arrangements for 3,400 persons. In order to avoid waiting times, there will be recommended lunch times for all participants who have pre-ordered lunch. We kindly ask you to follow such given time slots.

We reserve the right to slightly modify our menu ingredients in case of short-term changes in the market offering e.g. due to non-availability on the market or substantially increased supply prices.

With more than 13.000 requested menus per day, it is simply impossible to respond to all of the existing allergies and to offer a selection of food that meets everyone's requirements. Instead, the focus is on a selection between the menu of the day and a vegetarian menu as alternative. In this respect, please note that for a couple of years already it is legally binding in Austria to declare any allergens on the menu card. This will certainly also be implemented at the World Gymnaestrada 2019. Below-mentioned please find the complete list of allergens, relating to the respective WG menus for your further convenience.
