IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE
WINTER SPORTS OLYMPIC ATHLETES
Thuringia’s winter sports capital is located in the district of Schmalkalden-Meiningen and its undisputed name is Oberhof. The first skiing competitions were held here as early as 1905, and in 1931 bobsledders and Nordic skiers held their first World Championships in Oberhof – a new centre of top winter sports was born.
Still today, Oberhof is one of the most famous winter sports resorts in the world.
In 2023, Oberhof will host two World Championships. The winter sports centre will host the Biathlon World Championships for the second time since 2004. The 2023 World Luge Championships will also be held in Oberhof for the fourth time exactly 50 years after the first domestic title competitions.
