Inclusive sports complex

On the inclusive sports complex you have the opportunity to get to know and try out sports. For associations and their members, the inclusive sports complex offers the ideal setting for an exchange.

A daily programme on the inclusive sports complex is right for everyone who is interested in a new sport! In the years before, wheelchair tennis, handball and basketball could be played. Also the teams of the disciplines biathlon, seated volleyball or inclusive hockey have encouraged the visitors to participate.
