Olympia Bob Run St. Moritz-Celerina

Plazza Gunter Sachs, 7500 St. Moritz

Description

The Olympic Bob Run St. Moritz-Celerina is located at 1,800 m above sea level and is not only the oldest, but also the only natural ice bobsled run in the world.

Every year, South Tyrolean track workers create the run anew within three weeks. They model the run exclusively by hand and without the use of large machines.
For more than 100 years, the 1,722-meter-long ice sculpture in the midst of pure nature has thrilled athletes, fans, spectators and vacationers alike.
In the course of its history, the Bob Run has already hosted two Olympic Winter Games and 25 World Championships.

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

In addition, all year round there is the possibility to explore the Olympic Bob Run St. Moritz - Celerina with your smartphone and to learn all kinds of curiosities and interesting facts about its history and the ice canal sports on the specially created educational trail (open daily during the summer season).

During the summer season (July 1 - September 30), there is a guided tour at the Info Point every Thursday, followed by a visit to the bobsleigh garage. You can find more info here: https://www.engadin.ch/de/events/fuehrung-im-info-point-mit-anschliessender-besichtigung-der-bobgarage/
