Pair skating, along with men's and women's single skating, has been an Olympic discipline since figure skating, the oldest Winter Olympic sport, was introduced at the 1908 Olympic Games in London. The ISU World Figure Skating Championships introduced pair skating in 1908.

It was held in Gelsenkirchen on November 12–15. Medals were awarded in the disciplines of men's singles, ladies' singles, pair skating, and ice dancing.
