Germany Soccer and Sightseeing

The German national soccer team, or "die Mannschaft" ("The Team") as it's known there, has dominated European soccer and the World Cup. They won the 2014 World Cup. Germany is historically one of the three most successful national soccer teams at international competitions, having won a total of three World Cups and three European Championships. They have also been runners-up three times in the European Championships, four times in the World Cup, and further won four 3rd places, were hosts to the World Cup in 2006. The Germany Women's national soccer team is also considered among the world's best, reaching the quarter finals in the 2011 Women's World Cup and having won the past 4 European Championships for women. Soccer teams traveling to Germany can learn a lot from Germany's successful soccer history.

Bavaria, the southernmost German state, and its capital Munich, stand apart from the rest of the country. The difference includes a more relaxed lifestyle. Visitors linger for hours in beer gardens, eating, singing and meeting new friends. Munich's soccer scene is just as special. In the 1970s FC Bayern Munich, featuring players like Franz Beckenbauer and Gerd Müller, ruled Europe. Four decades later, it remains a powerhouse. The city, which hosted both the 1972 Olympics and '74 World Cup, returned to the international stage in 2006 when Germany again hosted the World Cup. Munich also boasts one of the most successful and popular club teams in all of Europe in Bayern Munich. No wonder Munich holds such appeal for soccer teams wanting to travel internationally.

 

With famous pro soccer clubs such as FC Cologne, Bayer Leverkusen, Borussia Dortmund and Schalke 04, there are more famous soccer clubs here than nearly any place in Europe. But Cologne is known for many other things as well. The 2000-year-old city's beauty is both natural (it sits on the Rhein River) and manmade (the riverfront Alstadt is dominated by the spectacular Dom towers). Soccer teams traveling here are sure to enjoy Cologne's rich mix of ancient history and modern soccer.

"When I think of Premier International Tours, the words quality, value, and honesty come to mind. I have had the luxury of taking 2 teams on trips with PIT and most recently returned from Venice, Italy and Munich, Germany. Players and family members commented throughout the trip about it being the experience of a lifetime and a great value at the price-point. The team was able to experience the culture of these great destinations, be trained by professional academy coaches, and play against teams of a very high standard. We were even fortunate enough to see a Bayern Munich U17 match at the training facility stadium as an impromptu excursion thanks to our professional guide. Don't hesitate to book with Premier International Tours. You and your team will experience a trip that will create memories to last a lifetime!"
