"Horseriding / Horse racing" Hamburg Sports & Outdoors Tip by chris.hh

Hamburg Sports & Outdoors: 25 reviews and 27 photos

A special interest tip - for horse sport lovers: In Hamburg there is the most important German Race every year at the Horner Rennbahn. One week in June there are 2,400 meter races with horses from Germany and abroad. Special is that just 20 are allowed to start, and horses just are allowed to start once in their lifetime - with the age of three years.
The race takes place in Hamburg for more than 130 years and it is supposed to be the most important one in Germany, the highlight of the sports-year and known world wide. Also, it is one of the oldest races taking place somewhere else than in UK.
