It is exciting enough watching your favourite sports stars on television; but each year, several Top-class sport events take place for example in the Chiemgau Arena (Ruhpolding) and the Max Aicher Arena (Inzell).

Every year in december, a speed skating world cup takes place in the most innovative speed skating hall of the world: The Max Aicher Arena in Inzell. In his history spanning multiple decades, the speed skating hall proves effective in two European championships, over 150 international major events like the competition to gain the “Golden ice skate” and lots of national championships. But the “Max Aicher Arena” is not only for champions: Everybody who likes ice skating or Bavarian curling is invited to enjoy the site. Due to the roofing of the stadium, the competitions are regardless of weather conditions which is not only comfortable for the athletes, but also for the viewers.
Very interesting for sport lovers is also the annual biathlon world cup in the “Chiemgau Arena” of Ruhpolding which occurs in January. When the world stars of biathlon are entering the arena, there is an exceptional situation in the village. While the athletes are competing for World Cup points, the fans cheering on the teams live in the stadium. If you are interested, you can also visit the arena before and after the World Cup.
