The major international world record event, named Vienna Recordia, takes place at the Vienna Prater, the oldest amusement park in the world.
Day of superlatives promises spectacular record attempts, to participate in as well as to marvel at! From the attempt to collect the milk of a coconut with the bare hands to the trial to destroy as many baseball bats as possible with one hand - last year again several record attempts managed to gain an entry in the Guinness Book of World Records.
As you can imagine, there are all sorts of weird and wonderful competitions and you don't have to take part to enjoy the event. The most bizarre has to be hammering as many nails as possible into a piece of wood in a given time. The best from each region make the trip to the Vienna Recordia to compete in the final.
