The Icelandic Horses World Championships in the Metropolis Berlin
The World Championships for Icelandic horses 2019 will once again take place at Pferdesportpark Berlin-Karlshorst, Treskowallee 159, in the Lichtenberg district. This is located directly on the edge of the six-kilometer park and forest area Wuhlheide and is therefore centrally located for all the major and well-known destinations of the metropolis. Up to one of Berlin's prominent central points, Alexanderplatz, you can drive directly from the WM venue in 15 minutes thanks to the well-developed public transport network. It is only a few minutes more to the Brandenburg Gate or Reichstag.
Ideal Public Transport Connection
More than 10,000 Spectators are expected to attend WM2019. As there are only a few on-site parking spaces, we recommend that all visitors travel conveniently by public transport. Tram, underground train, suburban/ city rail and Deutsche Bahn AG's regional transport lead to the WM venue, optimal transport connections are therefore guaranteed.
The Karlshorst S-Bahn (city rail) station is located near the Equestrian Sports Park. The S3 S-Bahn and Buses 296 and 396 stop here. It is best to take the tram to the Hegemeisterweg stop. There, the trams of the M17, 21, 27, 37 and 67 lines stop. On the homepage of the Berlin Transport Companies (BVG) you can find out the current connections, the appropriate ticket will be displayed. BVG's free "FahrInfo Plus" app also informs about travel links and you can even buy a ticket directly from the app.
Arriving by Train or Plane
Rail passengers usually arrive at the central or east station. From here there is a connection to the S-Bahn. If you arrive by plane, it is best to travel from Tegel Airport (TXL) by bus TXL to the central train station and transfer to the S3. The best way to get from Schönefeld Airport (SXF) is via the S-Bahn (city rail) via the central train station to Karlshorst S-Bahn (city rail) station.
Cycling through Berlin
If you want to be particularly flexible and sporty on the road, there are many opportunities for you to rent a bike in Berlin. This service is not only offered by numerous hotels and bicycle rentals. You can also book a bike spontaneously via app. In Berlin, for example, the providers Deezer/Nextbike or Call a bike are represented. Lime also offers scooters and e-bikes.
We wish you a pleasant journey and an eventful Icelandic Horses World Championship in Berlin!
