2022 World Championships

Montpellier, France March 22-27, 2022


Laid Back City

With 300 sunny days and a temperate climate, Montpellier is a perfect place to visit year round.  However, it is even better to visit this easy going, sparsely populated city in March when the weather is cold back home.  Walk leisurely down old alleyways and around old world charm.

World Quality Skating

The relaxed atmosphere of Montpellier is a great compliment to the tension and excitement of a world competition.  In a post Olympics World Championships, fresh skaters out of the junior ranks often show their potential in the new Olympic cycle.

Montpellier is a city that should be explored by walking leisurely around.  Stroll through Écusson the Old Town.  Visit the 13 mansions built in the 1600 and 1700s.  Browse the traditional markets that are a key part of French life.  

Montpellier is a perfect gateway to other destinations.  The Mediterranean Sea is less than 30 minutes away and accessible via public transport. Nice France and Barcelona Spain are less than 4 hours by car and Paris France is less than 8 hours.  Take time to explore another fascinating city.
