Visit Austria - Styria

H2 and how it all started!

Graz, Styria - the Green Heart of Austria!

In autumn of 2002 Helly Hirner made a crucial decision. After years as a professional Beach Volleyball Player, travelling the world and finishing his studies, he decided to start his own tour operator business specialized in Sport & Language. On 1st of January 2003 the company “H2 Sport.Sprachen” was born. From a tiny home office space in Graz, the journey had begun.

Since then the company has grown internationally. Together with Thomas Spannring, Helly owns and runs companies in Austria, England and Ireland. The company keeps on reinventing itself and from 2020 onwards H2 will offer holidays and services to their wonderful home in Styria, the green heart of Austria. 

The time has come  to show our unique Austria to friends and partners from from all over the world.

Experience first hand the difference we can make for you! 

It began as the brainchild of Helly Hirner, and in partnership with his schoolfriend Thomas Spannring, developed into a brand that would shake up the Youth and Education market.

With Styria in our heart and  our passion for customer service, we create your customised Styrian experience.
