Venues

Central Switzerland is the cradle not only of the Swiss Federation, but also of winter sport. The enthusiasm and expertise in the region are immense. Competitions will be held at seven different venues.

Central Switzerland is the ideal host for the 30th Winter Universiade. Whether the snow arenas in Andermatt or Engelberg, or the ice stadiums of Lucerne and Zug: the choice of winter sports in Central Switzerland is almost limitless. The passion and enthusiasm of the local population for winter sports also knows no bounds.

Both the sports-mad locals and the international fans will contribute to the great atmosphere at the event. The seven venues are easily accessible by car or public transport from the host city of Lucerne.

In addition to modern sports facilities, the heartland of Switzerland high above Lake Lucerne also offers several breath-taking venues such as the Bürgenstock Resort, which will provide a unique backdrop to various Winter Universiade events.
