Hochfilzen, located at the heart of Tirol’s Pillerseetal Valley, is busy preparing for hosting the Biathlon Worlds from February 08 to 19, 2017. No expense has been spared in a series of 20 million-euro investment projects.
In December 2015, the refurbished Biathlon Center in Hochfilzen has hosted the BMW IBU World Cup Biathlon. The organizers of the 2017 BMW IBU World Championships Biathlon look forward to adding this year’s events to the Hochfilzen Biathlon Center’s legacy of successful sport competitions. Situated at an elevation of 1,000 meters at the heart of Pillerseetal Valley, Hochfilzen officially welcomes the world back to the IBU Biathlon World Championships in February 2017. After 1978 and 2005, 2017 will mark the third time that Tirol will host this momentous international event. The world’s best athletes in the sport of biathlon will compete for their chance at glory in Hochfilzen from February 08 to 19, 2017.
The Hochfilzen Biathlon Center is Austria’s premier biathlon venue. No expense has been spared in a series of 20 million-euro investment projects that have seen the creation of a brand-new sporting venue and the upgrade of existing biathlon infrastructure, including an indoor shooting range, paved roller ski trails, and new spectator stands. Come on to Hochfilzen for some outstanding shooting and high speed cross country ski action! Tickets will be available by June 2016.
