CHIO Aachen 2019 – World Equestrian Festival

Information

The CHIO Aachen is the official equestrian show of the Federal Republic of Germany. Nations’ Cups in five disciplines are held at the event - dressage, show jumping, eventing, driving and vaulting. Aachen has a rich equestrian heritage dating back to 1898, and is one of the events that everyone wants to win! Every year around 350,000 spectators from all over the globe come to the Aachen Soers to experience the World Equestrian Festival, CHIO Aachen.

The unique feature of Aachen is being able to watch world class competition across the disciplines at a single venue. Only the World Equestrian Games is comparable in the depth and breadth of talent on show. Our tour will take in the major show jumping, dressage and driving classes and the entire eventing competition, where the cross country course is one of the most notoriously challenging in the world!
