Chiemgau Arena

General Information regarding the Chiemgau Arena

The Chiemgau Arena is not simply the venue for the annual Biathlon World Cup, but also a performance and Olympic center. It is at the heart of Nordic ski sports in Ruhpolding. Since 1964 when stadium at the foot of the Zirmberg was first built, it has been rebuilt, expanded, improved and modernized again and again. The last major renovation took place in 2012 for the Biathlon World Championships. Now about 23,000 fans can watch in the arena  (13,000 on the stands, and 10,000 along the track). Since then, the Biathlon World Championships have taken place in Ruhpolding four times (1979, 1985, 1996, and 2012). For further information about the training process, renovations, interesting statistics and facts see
