St. Wendel
Cross-country mountain-biking championships

St. Wendel is the venue for the World Cyclo-Cross Championships, where pros from the world of cross-country mountain biking quite literally take the rough with the smooth, tackling a treacherous course where in some places they even have to cycle over snow and ice.

Taking the rough with the smooth
The spectacular World Cyclo-Cross Championships are as enthralling for the spectators as they are heart-stopping for the mountain bike virtuosos. An exuberant party atmosphere is provided by special shows and music events held in the festival marquees.

Places of interest

The small town of St. Wendel has a population of just under 30,000, and has the advantage of being located amid the diverse, ever-changing landscape of the Saar-Hunsrück nature reserve. Even today, the old quarter simply oozes history, while a field of huge rock sculptures crafted by contemporary artists marks the beginning of the "Sculpture Route". The grave of Saint Wendelin is another of the attractions found in this Saarland town.
