World Cube Association


17.01.2010: Pictures and media appearances.

15.01.2010: We will not be able to register any guests online or change events for registrations already made after about 4PM today. You will have to tell us those things at the competition.

12.01.2010: The registration for new competitors is now closed. However, registration as a guest is still possible.

04.01.2010: The registration for new competitors will be closed on Tuesday, January 12. Guests will still be able to register

23.12.2009: Due to the really tight schedule and the number of already registered competitors, we decided to put all new registrations for 4x4x4, 5x5x5, 6x6x6, 7x7x7 and 3x3x3 One-Handed on waiting lists.

04.12.2009: There is no room left to stay in our private places. Sorry!

01.12.2009: The competition will be held in Lecture Hall Aula II of RWTH Aachen University.

30.11.2009: We just received our 100th registration for the 3x3x3 main event after only 9 days. We therefore have (if everybody comes) more competitors than any other official german WCA competition in the history of speedcubing!

23.11.2009: A small status update: Registration opened exactly 48 hours ago and the World Cube Association announced the competition about 10 hours ago on their website. We just received the 50th registration (this took more than a whole month at Aachen Open 2009!) This is going to be really exciting ;-)

21.11.2009: Website launched. Registration is now open.


What is Aachen Open 2010?

Aachen Open 2010 is the second official Speedcubing competition in Aachen, Germany and the successor of Aachen Open 2009. Speedcubing is the activity of solving a Rubik's Cube or related puzzles as quickly as possible.

Where and when?

January 16th/17th, 2010

Lecture Hall Aula II
Computer Science Building, RWTH Aachen University
Ahornstraße 55, 52074 Aachen

How much does it cost?

The entrance fee will probably (!) be 5 euro per person per day. This applies to everyone (except reporters), no matter if you are a competitor, guest, parent of a competitor or someone else!

Where can I sleep?

There are plenty of hotels in Aachen, check for example and look for hotels in "Aachen Zentrum", for example the Aquis Grana City Hotel Aachen.

Aaaah, I never attended a competition and I feel totally lost!

Don't panic! Everybody is welcome and it's not about winning. You will most likely not be the only one who needs more than a minute to solve the cube.

There will be plenty of time to test the equipment (for example the official timing device, the Stackmat timer) and discuss the rules, if you have questions. However, every competitor should have read the official WCA regulations at least once before attending a competition!

I have questions, which are not answered by this website!
