Heard about that? Antholz becomes OLYMPIC!
Exactly 70 years after Cortina and 20 years after Turin, the world's largest winter sports event will once again take place in Italy. The candidature of Milan and Cortina won the bid for the Olympic Winter Games 2026.
Italy scored with its experience in hosting major events, its infrastructure, sustainability and last but not least because of the good weather conditions.
Antholz will host the Biathlon competitions. Thus, for the first time in sports history, Olympic medals will be won on South Tyrolean soil.
The 25th Olympic Winter Games will take place from 6 to 22 February 2026, the Paralympics from 6 to 15 March 2026, although these competitions will not be held in Antholz. Beside Milan, Cortina and Antholz also Livigno, Bormio, Val die Fiemme and Baselga di Piné will host Olympic competitions. 2,600 participants from over 91 countries are expected.
