Sport Events in Berlin
Whatever time of year you come,
there's plenty to keep you busy.
Spectators have the choice of watching
Ice-Hockey, American Football, Basketball, or follow the fate
of Berlin's football (soccer) team - BSC Hertha, in the company
of surprisingly amiable crowds.
The National pony and trap race takes place at Marienfelde, and,
in the East, Hoppegarten provides a traditional day at the races.
A winter visit? Although Berlin
lies in the middle of a plain, an improbable five ski slopes are
at your disposal, together with in- and outdoor skating rinks,
on the surrounding lakes, or simply in public squares.
Follow it up with a trip to a Sauna or swimming bath, like the
palatial reconstructed oriental Public Sauna in Neukölln, or the
vast 50 metre pool of the newly built near the Berlin Arena (Velodrom).
In summer Berlin's city-wide cycle lanes will take you safely
and quickly to the edge of the city, to forests like Grunewald,
and lakes like Müggelsee, where you can idle away the time fishing
or hire a rowing or paddleboat for a few hours.
Golf and mini-golf, tennis and yoga,
skate-boarding and martial arts, balloon rides and bungee-jumping
- you take your pick. Or perhaps an attempt at one of the artificial
climbing walls for the family album.
Whether spectator or competitor
don't miss the Berlin Marathon in September. And for soccer fans,
don't forget, in 2006 Berlin hosts the World Cup.
