The racecourse is situated on a 64 acres space of land in the district Mülheim-Speldorf, not far from its neighboring town of Duisburg. It is the oldest sports-ground in Mülheim and was opened on September 29 th, 1910.
During WWII the racecourse was nearly destroyed due to bombings, but very soon after the war ended, the first race was held in October 1946. Since then, the racecourse "Raffelberg" regularly invites approx. 5.000 visitors to its well known horse races.
In recent years, a 9-hole-golf-course was established in the middle of the course to offer even more leisure activities in that area.
