The Biathlon World Cup will be taking place in the Thuringian town of Oberhof from 3 to 5 January 2014. As well as cheering on the competitors from the sidelines, you might like to get to know the sport better yourself and have a go at some of the activities on offer. But that's not all that's going on in Oberhof – a week later, from 10 to 12 January 2014, the town will also be the venue for the Luge World Cup. This is a fantastic opportunity to watch thrilling high-speed sled runs at close hand and to spur the racers on to new world records.
Away from the big events, those seeking relaxation are also well catered for. The Thuringian Forest is ideal walking terrain even in winter – or you can simply enjoy one of the many spa packages on offer.
