Held annually shortly before Christmas, the Adventlauf brings runners to Austria's largest lake, the Neusiedler See, which is located in a wind-prone region on the border with Hungary.

The start and the finish are in the town centre of Podersdorf, a resort on the eastern shore of the lake.

The event comprises a 5.8km run (which consists of three laps), children's races, and a 4.3km loop for nordic walkers.

Over 200 runners, a fair number of them Hungarian athletes, took part in last year's Adventlauf. The top finishers in the 5.8K Hauptlauf were Attila Czindrity of Hungary (19:01) and Elisabeth Pöltner of Austria (21:56).
