World class winter athletes

The Wintersports Arena Sauerland is one of the biggest winter sports regions in Germany. This is also made apparent by the high number of winter sports facilities – often used for training and competition by world class winter athletes.


Winterberg Bobsleigh Track

Locals are often a step ahead when the stars of bobsleigh, skeleton and luge get together for their annual winter races. The winding 1600m long artificial ice canal is considered one of the fastest tracks in the world. During the European and World Championships and the various World Cups fans line the track and cheer their athletes on with sirens and oversize cowbells.


World Cup Ski Jump Willingen

Every year elite ski jumpers from all over the world get together in Willingen to participate in the Ski Jumping World Cup. While the skiers are in the air, the pulsating atmosphere produced by around 30 000 spectators in front of the Mühlenkopf Ski Jump is indescribable: High-performance sport for the touching.
