stadium Inzell

The Bavarian town of Inzell hosted the World Single Distant Speed Skating Championships 2011. To create the world-class competition conditions required for this event, the existing outdoor speed-skating track was upgraded through the construction of a high-performance intelligent roof structure, by Stuttgart-based practice Behnisch Architekten.

This improved arena can accommodate up to 7,000 spectators and offers maximum flexibility for large scale world class competitions as well as regular seasonal speed-skating training.

The 200 meter long and 90 meter wide arena was planned as an independent wide-span structure, free of interior columns.

The athletes and spectators can enjoy panoramic views of the Bavarian Alps through the continuous glass facade which stands as a transparent band between the cloud-like roof and the concrete grandstands that flow into the landscape.



At the same time, passers-by can look into the stadium interior and catch a glimpse of daily activities.
