World Equestrian Festival – CHIO Aachen
The CHIO is the most traditional equestrian event in Germany. The Aachen-Laurensberger Rennverein e.V. racing club has organised the equestrian tournament on what is now CHIO’s site since 1925. The first race is on Friday and the event will continue until Sunday the following week. Every year Aachen is the meeting point for fans of equestrian sports from all over the world. But also for people who just want to be part of the special atmosphere; for example, there is Soerser Sunday. That is when admission to the entire CHIO area is free. During the week, the show displays 5 different disciplines for the crowd to marvel at, in addition to jumping, dressage and four-in-hand racing there is also versatility and vaulting, which have been included since 2006.
