The venue

The playing venue, Mackhallen, is situated in the middle of Tromsø city centre. Mack is the world's most northerly brewery and dates from 1877. When the brewery moved to more modern facilities 7000 square meters became available to the Chess Olympiad organisers.

The venue is within walking distance of all the official Olympiad hotels in the city centre.

The following slideshow gives an impression of how the venue will look for the OIympiad:
