Welcome to the 65th World Ploughing Championship!
20 years of waiting have come to an end – on 1 and 2 September 2018, the World Ploughing Championship is coming back to Germany. After 1958 in Hohenheim, Baden-Württemberg, 1978 in Wickstadt, Hesse, and 1998 in Altheim, Bavaria, in 2018 Germany will be the host of this great event for the fourth time.
The venue of this international competition, bringing the world’s best ploughers from over 30 countries across the globe, is the Herzog von Württemberg Einsiedel farm estate in Kirchentellinsfurt, Baden-Württemberg. The estate is situated roughly 30 km south of Stuttgart and has excellent transport connections due to its proximity to Stuttgart and its convenient position on Bundesstrasse 27.
Visitors from near and far will be met with an exciting programme with multiple highlights such as the fascinating stubble and grassland ploughing competitions, in which the participants must prove their mastery of their trade.
Regional delicacies, a varied line up of performances and speeches and demonstrations of cutting edge agricultural technology promise to make the event an unforgettable experience.
The event organisers, the Kuratorium Weltpflügen 2018 e.V., as well as all of the sponsors of the competition are looking forward to hosting this unique event and cordially invite you to Einsiedel for the all-day competitions on 1 and 2 September 2018.
