The x-bionic® sphere was created by the successful businessman and endurance enthusiast Mario Hoffmann. The equestrian facilities of the Olympic Sports Centre were built to a high standard, in full compliance with FEI rules and regulations. The complex includes 680 permanent stables, directly connected to the horse trucks parking and main arenas and a 1.6-km galloping track. Eight oversized indoor and outdoor arenas equipped with both sand and grass footing complete the “Eldorado” of equestrian sports.
The entrance is free every day.
