European Championships competition site City-West


European Championships competition site City-West

The majority of decisions will be held at one of the most beautiful athletics stadiums of the world – the Berlin Olympic Stadium. For the first time in the 84-year history of European Athletics Championships, however, the city centre is turned into a second competition site.

The shot put qualifications, all Marathon and Race Walking events as well as almost all of the victory ceremonies will take place at and around the Breitscheidplatz and the Berlin Zoo in the City West.

This innovation builds a bridge between the Stadium and the city centre of Berlin: Emotional victory ceremonies, captivating live sports and fabulous entertainment. Berlin 2018 brings this world-class sports event close to the people in the European metropolis.
