Oberharzer Sled Dog Adventure 2025

Saturday and Sunday | February 08th to 09th

In February 2025, the Oberharzer Schlittenhunde Adventure will once again take place in Clauthal-Zellerfeld. Be there when the race for the "Great Harz Cup" and the International German Snow Championship of the SRSD e.V. takes place in all classes with at least five starters per class. Stand right next to the race track and cheer on the noble sled dogs and their mushers!


At the Upper Harz Sled Dog Adventure, "amateur mushers" compete with the professionals of the scene. Some of the top German and Dutch sled dog teams will be taking part in the 2025 sled dog race. But many "hobby mushers" who have caught the competition fever will also take part in the race with their beautiful sled dogs. Enjoy this exciting experience!

Varied sled dog races

Spectators can look forward to numerous sled dog teams with many sled dogs of the Siberian Husky, Samoyed and Alaskan Malamute breeds. Only purebred sled dogs will be at the start. The experienced race director Wolf-Dieter Polz will be organising the race again this year.

We all very much hope that there will be enough snow, as the race can only take place if there is enough snow. If there is not enough snow, an alternative programme with a husky meeting and torchlight hike will be offered.
