At Altenberg / Zinnwald -  has biathlon sport a very long tradition. The beginnings of biathlon can already be found here in the 1950s. Due to the early development, Zinnwald is also known as the cradle of biathlon in Germany.

Since then, the region has produced numerous World Cup winners, world champions, Olympic champions and successful trainers. Including names like: Dieter Sperr, Frank-Peter Roetsch, Rico Groß, Michael Rösch, Tina Bachmann and Klaus Siebert.

With the renovation of the shooting range and the entire start / finish area in 2004, the facility was adapted to the new requirements and regulations of biathlon. This means that national and international events such as the Germany Cup or the IBU Cup (B-World Cup) can be held in the arena at regular intervals.

With the German championships in biathlon, which are traditionally held in summer, and the variants of bike biathlon and summer biathlon, biathlon has developed into a year-round sport.
