"Games and sports in the cold season": The proximity of the Alps and the widespread impact of the first international Winter Games in Chamonix in 1924 favored the development of winter sports in Bavaria in the last century. In the 1960s, Dachauer Hans-Jürgen Bäumler was twice World Champion in pair skating with Marika Kilius. The exhibition is dedicated to the pleasure of ice and snow. It tells of rural sleigh races, the beginnings of ice sports, ski jumping and skiing in the Dachau region.
