2019 Nordic SKIING WORLD CUP in Seefeld
The 52nd Nordic World Ski Championships were held in Seefeld in 2019
In February 2019 Seefeld hosted the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships for the second time after 1985. Already in 1964, 1976 and 2012 Seefeld was the Olympic venue of the Nordic competitions. True to the motto "Hand in Hand - Let's celebrate a nordic ski festival" this event was prepared, celebrated together and the whole region was filled with an unforgettable, unique "World Championship atmosphere".
12 days, 22 medal decisions, thousands of visitors - these world championships have gone down in the sporting history of the Olympic Region Seefeld. Brilliant picture book weather, the breathtaking landscape and perfect cross-country skiing conditions provided for an exuberant mood among the athletes as well as the visitors. Norway was the clear winner with a total of 13 gold medals, followed by Germany with six and Sweden with two gold medals.
New and widened trails were not only necessary for the World Championships. They are inspiring all cross-country skiers, both beginners and professionals. With the new track layout you will not only experience an even greater choice of routes, but due to the width of the tracks, everyone has enough space to practice this sport.
Great importance has been attached to the fact that the World Championships are all about sustainability and a humble approach to nature. The aim was to preserve and protect resources - all construction measures were checked for sustainability and energy was managed as a precious commodity.
New, widened cross-country trails are not just a major necessity for the World Cup. You also have an even larger selection of trails with the new cross-country skiing trails. Thanks to the wider cross-country skiing trails there is plenty of room for both beginners and pros.
