Sportforum Hohenschönhausen

Sportforum Hohenschönhausen is a multi-use sports complex in Berlin-Hohenschönhausen, Germany, that includes facilities for speed skating, athletics, cycling, and other sports.

Ice sports arena

A 400 m speed skating indoor arena opened on 17 November 1986 and was the first covered speed skating oval in the world, one day prior to Thialf in Heerenveen which hosted the World Allround Speed Skating Championships for Men later that season. There is another hall that is primarily used for ice hockey which was the home arena of Eisbären Berlin. That arena has a seating capacity for 4,695 people.
