Altenberg hosts the 2020 IBSF Bobsleigh + Skeleton World Championships
Opened officially nearly 29 years ago, the ice track in Altenberg is the youngest of Germany's four tracks.
The start and finish areas of the 1413-metre long ice track were refurbished in 2007, and today the track wends its way over 18 bends through the Erzgebirge mountain range in Saxony. It has been the scene of many IBSF World and European Championships in the course of its history: the men fought for World Championships medals here in the two and four-man bobsleigh in 1991 and 2000, and in the skeleton in 1994 and 1999.
In the joint bobsleigh and skeleton World Championships in 2008, six titles were up for grabs (women’s and men’s skeleton, women’s bobsleigh, two-man and four-man bobsleigh and the team competition). ©RWH2016
