Historic Bobsleigh Track at the Riessersee

Welcome on this private Website.

Here you find information and pictures from the historic olympic bobsleigh track at the lake "Riessersee" in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. The pictures were taken by myself or given to me, the Information were gathered from the Internet and from Information boards at the track.

Races took place from 1910 until 1965, including the Olympic Winter Games in Garmisch-Partenkirchen 1936.

The track was abandoned and got a national Heritage in the year 2003. Many Volunteers cut down the trees and bushes in the track so that nowadays you can easily walk through the whole track. Financial support comes from the Foundation "Mehrwert". So it was possible to place Information boards along the track.

I like to say "Thank You" to the Posthotel Grainau for giving me some pictures.
