The host of the YONEX German Open Badminton Championships is Mühlheim an der Ruhr. At the time of writing the town has traditionally hosted the tournament the most times to date.
The international German championships in badminton have been taking place in various locations in Germany since 1955. Prize money has been rising steadily over the years to break through the magical six digit dollar figures in 2011.
Badminton has become a more popular sport over the years in Germany and German players strong in championships. For those that love the speed of the sport and watching shuttlecocks flying back and forth, the event is a great pleasure to experience.
