Jena - A City of Sport

Jena, although known for its University and sciences, is also a major sporting city. Well-known representatives of Jena includes the male football players of FC Carl Zeiss Jena, the top-class women’s footballers of FF USV Jena, and the basketball players of Science City Jena, all of whom regularly fill stadiums and arenas. Last but not least: Jena’s latest export into the world of top-class sporting achievement – Thomas Röhler, alumnus of the University and Olympic Javelin Champion in 2016.

The Hochschulsport and Universitätssportverein (USV) clubs offer plenty of options for anyone looking to get active themselves. The vast sports programme covers everything from aerobics, long-distance running, karate, and yoga to more left-field sports like jugger and underwater rugby. Training sessions take place in the generously-sized and state-of-the-art facilities in Oberaue or the USV Dreifelderhalle.

The "Paradies" Park is also located close-by - and, as the name suggests, it's a paradise for skaters and walkers alike. Canoeists will love taking to the waters of the Saale, while hikers and cyclists will also find a great range of tours in the surrounding region. And it's not hard to understand why walking has become something of a national sport in Thuringia if you take a tour along the "Horizontale", where you get plenty of stunning views along the way.
