HistoryEdit

The first venue was Altenberg (then East Germany). The age limit of the participating athletes is 20 years. On 24 June 2009, it was decided that Nove Mesto na Moravě (Czech Republic), Lahti (Finland) and Obertilliach (Austria) will be the venues for the World Junior Championships in 2011, 2012 and 2013.

The Biathlon Junior World Championships from 1967 to 1988 were held in the same period and in one venue as the World Championships.
