Hundreds of thousands of visitors come to the Soers year after year, because they share a passion – and want to spend an unforgettable time here.  So, the supporting programme is a significant part of the event. A thrilling show programme is integrated into the 10 days of top-class equestrian sport, which offers diversity and goose bump moments. The CHIO Aachen is more than an equestrian show!
