In 1953, the Volksparkstadion (formerly Imtech Arena ) was rebuilt in Hamburg. It is the home of the Bundesliga team Hamburger SV and was the venue for many national games as well as the world championships in 1974 and 2006. In 1998 the stadium was converted and rotated by 90°. The German Aviation Agency had to grant a special permit as the stadium is on the approach path of the airport in Hamburg. One highlight after converting the arena was the World Championships in Germany in 2006. A total of 4 preliminary round games and a quarter final game were played. However this stadium is also used for concerts and other sporting events. A total of 57,000 people can watch the events.

The deposits of waste quartz sand from the processing china clay in the Amberger Kaolinwerke over decades created the white mountain “Monte Kaolino” near Hirschau. In 1957 already, the unique qualities of this mountain were discovered and it was first used for summer ski events. Other facilities such as the lift system, camp site and gastronomy were created. The largest event is probably the annual sandboard world championships that take place. But also the Sandski European championship, the Sand-Big-Foot championship and the Monte-Grand:prix make the mountain come alive. The overall concept of the leisure park includes a dune pool with a total area of nearly 12,000 m². Water slides and dune flair make the pool landscape particularly attractive.
