Olympic Regatta Centre Munich
We create major sporting events at the Olympic Regatta Centre in Munich Oberschleißheim.
Since the 1972 Olympic Games, the Regatta Centre has been a household name in the rowing and canoe-sprint world. The competition venue for rowing and canoe-sprint, which was specially built for the XX Olympic Games, is located six kilometres north of the Olympic Park, half on the municipal territory of Munich and Oberschleißheim in the Dachauer Moos and covers an area of 850,000 square metres.
Since 1972, national and international competitions have been held regularly, from Bavarian championships to numerous world championships. In addition, the rowing and canoeing clubs of the Munich Metropolitan Region train here at the highest level.
With a length of exactly 2.23 kilometres, a width of 140 metres and a depth of 3.50 metres, the course offers space for events up to a maximum of 2,000 metres on eight lanes and thus corresponds to the A1 classification of WorldRowing.. Important from an athlete’s point of view: Because the Regatta Centre was built parallel to the main wind direction southwest/northeast, there are comparatively few waves and equal conditions for all courses, even in strong winds.
In addition to rowing regattas, the facility is used for canoe-sprint, canoe polo, swimming competitions, running events, cycling races, triathlons, corporate events and beach volleyball. The asphalt track around the course, where coaches and fans can follow races by bike, is also a popular training ground for inline skaters and road cyclists.
