Berlin is Germany’s political capital and one of the world’s leading sports metropolises. Thanks to its high-quality sporting venues, such as the Olympiastadion Berlin or the Max-Schmeling-Halle and the Velodrom, Berlin hosts sports highlights of international importance again and again. In the last few years for example the European Athletics Championships 2018, the World Para Athletics European Championships 2018 as well as the UCI Track World Championships 2020. In the next few years, Berlin will again be the site of high-caliber events, e.g. the EURO Basket 2022 and the Special Olympics World Summer Games 2023.
