Olympia Bob Run St. Moritz-Celerina

Plazza Gunter Sachs, 7500 St. Moritz

Description

The Olympia Bob Run St. Moritz-Celerina is situated at 1'800 m above sea level and is not only the oldest bobsleigh run but also the only natural ice rink in the world. Every year South Tyrolean track workers recreate the run within three weeks. They model the run exclusively by hand and thus without the use of large machines. For more than 130 years now, this 1'722-meter-long ice sculpture in the middle of pure nature has been inspiring athletes, fans, spectators and vacationers. In its history, the bobsleigh run has already hosted two Winter Olympics and 24 World Championships.

Anyone who would like to try out for themselves what a centrifugal force of 4G feels like can - safely crammed in between pilot and brakeman - experience an "adrenaline kick with tradition" in a guest bobsleigh run in a racing four-man bob.

During the summer, a hiking trail along the bobsleigh run is marked with information boards where you can learn all sorts of curiosities and interesting facts about its history.

In the 2022/23 season, athletes, coaches and fans can expect many highlights.

From the beginning of March to the end of June, the Info Point (museum and shop) is open on request. Please contact on events@olympia-bobrun.ch or call +41 81 830 02 00.
