1991 Bobsleigh World Championships
This maxi card is about the 1991 World Bobsleigh Championships which was awarded to Altenberg. It was held from 4 to 17 February 1991.
Altenberg is a town in the Sächsische Schweiz-Osterzgebirge district
, in the Free State of
Saxony, Germany. It is situated in the Ore Mountains, close to the
border with the Czech Republic, 15 km northwest of Teplice, and
32 km south of Dresden.
It is home of the Altenberg bobsleigh, luge and skeleton track that has been in use since 1987.
The FIBT World Championships 2008 ran February 11–24, 2008 in Altenberg, Saxony, for the fifth time, having done so in 1991 (bobsleigh), 1994 (skeleton), 1999 (skeleton), and 2000 (men's bobsleigh). It was the first time Altenberg has hosted all of the events at one championship.
