The CHIO Aachen – not only an equestrian mecca

The CHIO Aachen is known as an international equestrian Mecca - the world-famous equestrian tournament has been held in Aachen since 1924.en - not only an equestrian Mecca But the grounds also offer a unique flair beyond equestrian sports, whether for concerts or business meetings, open-air cinema events, parties or other sporting events.

This is the plan for the 3RIDES Festival

The event site offers first-class infrastructure and logistics, more than 42,000 m² of open-air space and a central and convenient location for all visitors (only one kilometre from the motorway and one kilometre from the city centre).

Due to the spaciousness of the grounds, the CHIO Aachen is also the ideal location for the 3RIDES Festival and its highlights:

  • In the expo and test bike area, you can take a detailed look at the new products of the season and take part in bike-related workshops.
  • Culinary delights are guaranteed at the Food Market.
  • And on stage you will experience regionally known music acts.
  • Numerous cycling challenges and rides start from the festival site, some of them guided by VIPs.
