Biathlon in Oberhof since the 1950s

Oberhof and biathlon - a long-standing synergy

As early as 1953, the first competitions in "patrol running" took place. This later developed into our present-day biathlon.

Since then, countless competitions have taken place in today's LOTTO Thüringen Arena on the Rennsteig. GDR championships, European competitions, German championships and world championships. Since 1984, the Biathlon World Cup has also made regular stops in Oberhof.
