A place to share the thrills
The Südtirol Arena Alto Adige

It is the largest in South Tyrol and one of the most renowned winter sports centres in the world: the biathlon and cross-country skiing centre "Südtirol Arena Alto Adige" in the Antholzertal valley! The venue of the Biathlon World Cup, one of the most popular sports events in South Tyrol, attracts every year international biathlon and cross-country skiing athletes to train on its 20 perfectly groomed kilometres of slopes. But of course you won't miss out as a spectator either, as you can unleash all your enthusiasm for the biathlon and share all the excitement with the athletes from the stands.

 

Good to know: At the Ski School Antholzertal you can participate in biathlon courses (all year round) or cross-country skiing courses (in winter).
