Visited the arena but unfortunately they do not do any tours in English.I do speak German but my husband doesn't. Surely they could either do a handout in various languages, or even an audio giving information for visitors.

Our children have watched biathlon on TV and had seen the arena and we were all delighted to visit. Tours are twice weekly, but are only conducted in German, and are all outdoors. Our guide was excellent, and spoke hochdeutsch rather than the local dialect...More

The tour in itself was interesting, although entirely in German. We did get to see the ski jumps and the race track/shooting area up close and get to see some people training with the shooting which was all quite nice. The weather was not cooperative...More

Being a bug biathlon fan it was a must to visit the arena. Shame the tour was only in German so we couldn't understand any of the tour guides commentary! It was fantastic to be given an opportunity to shoot a proper biathlon rifle in...More

Although the guided tour of the arena was in German, we got a general idea of the set-up at the arena. See how many targets you can hit - cost of the tour is free - 15 Euros for 10 shots at the targets, although...More

Добрый день! Мы были в Рупольдинге в августе. Но ведь это - биатлонный центр. Конечно, там много хороших лыжных трасс. Работают подъемники. Летом можно заниматься прыжками с парашютом в виде крыла. Мне очень понравился... More
