Altenberg, located close to Germany’s border with the Czech Republic, last staged the IBSF World Championships in 2008.

It has previously hosted bobsleigh competitions at the 1991 Championships, as well as skeleton three years later.

The town held men’s skeleton events at the 1999 edition and men’s bobsleigh in 2000.

The track due to be used for the Championships was first opened 29 years ago and is the youngest of Germany's four bobsleigh and skeleton tracks.
