The Heidelberg Gymnastics Centre was expanded with a modern new building that offers opimal training conditions for athletes. After a good two years of construction, the new hall was ceremoniously opened and is now available for training.
The new building impresses with its wooden construction and passive house standard. With highly insulated walls and triple-glazed windows, the hall is energy-efficient and environmentally friendly. Covering an area of 1300 m², the hall offers a ceiling height of an impressive 10 meters, 3 pits with a total of 109 m² of open pit system, and thus meets all the requirements of a modern training centre.
The Heidelberg Gymnastics Centre left nothing to chance when equipping the hall. It offers everything that trainers and gymnasts want for optimal training.
The planning of the new gymnasium took place in close cooperation with the responsible persons of the city of Heidelberg over several months. During this time, the pits were removed and the state-of-the-art equipment installed. But the hall will not only be available to top athletes. School inclination courses, numerous day-care centres and the Heidelberg gymnastics clubs are also to benefit from the first-class training facilities.
Elisabeth Claas, who joyfully accepted the symbolic key to the new hall, expressed her enthusiasm: "We are thrilled that we can start with new momentum in this special hall." The Heidelberg Gymnastics Centre is ready to usher in a new era of gymnastics and offer all athletes the best possible conditions for their training.
