Vienna will be a nice place for Germany to win its 4th euro title.

St.Jakobpark by Herzog and DeMeron is fantastic, but Klagenfurt and Zurich will look great as well I guess. The latter is only 2km away from home and I see every day it's development.

Letzigrund is the most special design of the eight. Together with Happel the only one to "stick out".

Happel isn't special in anyway, it seems they're giving it minor revisions but it needs some proper renovations and a new design, and Letzigrund has an athletics track, so it's completely stupid to use it as a international football venue

What would Letzigrund be WITHOUT athletics tracks?

Gotta say that Vienna should have built a big stadium. In the region of 60k maybe.
Portugal which is a much poorer country has managed to built some great venues.
I dont know why its not possible to built at least one big stadium in Austria.

Is there really a need for that after the tournament? Unlike Portugal, Austria and Switzerland seem pragmatic. Don't build what you don't need.

Austria can't even fill the ErnHaSta (awesome abbreviation) for international games. They don't need a 60,000 seater. Some stadiums do look a bit crappy though.

Thats what I think aswell.
An attractive stadium would automatically attract bigger crowds.
And Im sure that they could fill it for some games of the national squad.
Vienna couldve then hosted a CL or UEFA final at some point.
A city like Vienna just needs a modern stadium.
The Ernst Happel is just outdated and not suited for a Euro final.

The Happel-Stadium is typically Viennese:
Old, ugly, dirty but oh so lovely.

Swiss cities sign Charter
Tuesday, 23 January 2007
e-mailPrint

The four Swiss host cities for UEFA EURO 2008™ today signed a Host City Charter which sets out their rights and obligations ahead of a final tournament they will share with neighbours Austria.

Teamwork
Representatives of Zurich (where the ceremony was held), Basle, Berne and Geneva inked the agreement with UEFA and Euro 2008 SA, a UEFA subsidiary, this morning. Ralph M Zloczower, president of the Swiss Football Association and member of the Euro 2008 SA board of administration, said: "The better the teamwork, the better the results; this applies not just to a football team, but also to the organisers of a major event such as the UEFA European Championship. We are delighted to have agreed all the details of our co-operation with the Swiss host cities."

Responsibilities
Martin Kallen, chief operating officer of Euro 2008 SA, explained the details of the Charter. "To put it simply, this means the host cities will take responsibility for the planning, organisation and implementation of the fan zones," he said. "We will share the costs and offer the host cities advertising space in the stadiums and on TV, as well as complimentary and paid-for match tickets."

Fan zones
The point about the fan zones is especially important, after the impact of the big screens at the FIFA World Cup. "Following the massive success of the fan zones in Germany, we had to rethink and recalculate the dimensions of the fan zones," said Swiss tournament director Christian Mutschler. "But the agreement we have negotiated represents a very fair compromise."

Zurich momentum
Zurich mayor Elmar Ledergerber added: "We are pleased and proud that after lengthy and sometimes tough, but always constructive, negotiations we have reached an agreement that everyone is happy with, and particularly that UEFA and Euro 2008 SA have granted our requests for public viewings and ticket allocations for our local population. This momentum will help us as we continue preparations in the city of Zurich."

Berne ambitions
Alexander Tschäppät, mayor of Berne, declared: "Our objective remains a comparatively small but excellent EURO 2008™ in Berne, with the wonderful backdrop provided by the world heritage site of the old city of Berne and a unique public viewing venue in front of the Bundeshaus [parliament building] with hospitable and enthusiastic people."

Geneva focus
Mark Muller, representative of the Geneva canton, said: "We can only welcome this agreement, which has many advantages for Geneva. This charter forms the basis for fruitful co-operation between all the host cities and UEFA. As the only French-speaking host city, Geneva will be the focus for the whole of western Switzerland and neighbouring regions of France."

Basle festival
Hanspeter Gass, a member of the cantonal government of Basle, confirmed: "The negotiations were not always easy. However, this agreement represents an important milestone in the preparations for EURO 2008™ in Basle. Together with Euro 2008 SA, we will now push forward at top speed in order to create the best possible conditions for a unique and peaceful football festival in Basle."

Austrian cities pen Charter
Wednesday, 24 January 2007
e-mailPrint

The four Austrian host cities for UEFA EURO 2008™ followed the lead of their Swiss counterparts by signing the co-operation agreement, the Host City Charter, with UEFA and its subsidiary Euro 2008 SA at Vienna City Hall this evening.

Responsibilities
The agreement outlines the rights and obligations of the host cities - Vienna, Klagenfurt, Salzburg and Innsbruck - and arrangements for joint project implementation. Martin Kallen, chief operating officer of Euro 2008 SA, said: "This means the host cities will take responsibility for the planning, organisation and implementation of the fan zones. We will share the costs and offer the host cities advertising space in the stadiums and televisions schedules, as well as complimentary and purchase tickets for matches."

Fan zones
Austrian tournament director Christian Schmölzer was pleased with the agreement and revealed the extensive planning needed to accommodate the popular fan zones. He said: "Following the massive success of the fan zones in Germany, we had to rethink and recalculate the dimensions of the fan zones after the [FIFA] World Cup. But the agreement we have negotiated represents a very fair compromise."

Teamwork
Friedrich Stickler, chairman of the Euro 2008 SA board of administration and president of the Austrian Football Association, expressed his delight at the ratification, saying: "The better the teamwork, the better the results. This applies not just to a football team, but also to the organisers of a major event such as the UEFA European Championship. We are delighted to have agreed all the details of our co-operation with all eight host cities, including those in Switzerland."

Vienna anticipation
Dr Michael Häupl, mayor of Vienna, looked forward to staging matches in the Austrian capital, saying: "With the signing of the Host City Charter, Vienna can look forward to EURO 2008 with great pride and anticipation. This major sports event is already putting our city in the international football spotlight. As hosts, we will be trying to ensure that our guests can enjoy the special Viennese spirit in a relaxed, peaceful and friendly atmosphere and so have fond memories of our city."

Klagenfurt pride
Klagenfurt mayor Harald Scheucher sounded a similar note in advance of the tournament in two summers' time, when even more visitors are expected in his city: "Klagenfurt is a proud and charming host city in the Alpine-Adriatic region. It is home to one of the tournament stadiums and is famous for providing a perfect link between sport and leisure, relaxation and quality of life. More than 200,000 visitors experience this every year at the Kärnten Ironman Austria events and Beach Volleyball Grand Slam tournaments."

Salzburg festival
Dr Heinz Schaden, mayor of Salzburg, admitted to being a huge supporter of the fan parks. He said: "The public viewings of World Cup matches in Salzburg were a great success. We will therefore be creating a fan zone, complete with big screen, in the city centre during the UEFA European Championship and I am sure the atmosphere will be fantastic again. Three group matches will be staged in the Salzburg stadium and many fans will be coming to the city. The tournament will be a magnificent festival for the people of Salzburg and our guests and will give them many great memories."

Innsbruck atmosphere
Finally, the mayor of Innsbruck, Hilde Zach, highlighted the importance of the agreement between the cities and UEFA. She said: "The Host City Charter is the outward sign of the partnership between the city of Innsbruck and UEFA EURO 2008. We are looking forward to making this partnership work and creating a superb atmosphere for EURO 2008 in Innsbruck."

Klagenfurt (Lindwurm/dragon statue)


Salzburg (Hohensalzburg fortress)


Innsbruck (Golden roof)


Zürich (along the Limmat)


Basel


Bern (Zytgloggeturm)


Geneva (Jet d'eau)

Another rendering of the St.Jakobs Park



Are there any recent pics from the stadium?
I guess that it should be finished by now.
