Welcome in Montreux - Switzerland
Welcome to the European Fencing Championships 2015 in Montreux
Swiss Fencing is very happy to welcome the elite of European fencing to the 2015 European Championships which will take place in Montreux from the 5th to the 11th of June 2015.
Our federation has not organised a big fencing event since 1998, but to celebrate our 100th year of existence, we decided to organise these European Championships.
For this we have chosen a particularly special venue : the Montreux Music and Convention Center (2M2C), meeting place of the greatest music artists on the planet during the traditional Montreux Jazz Festival. It's location is also very special for we will find ourselves in an idyllic spot along the shores of the Lake Léman, one of the most frequented areas in all of Switzerland. We hope that all delegations will enjoy this event which itself is also of great importance for qualification to the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.
