There will also be football galore: each team will have the chance to play as many as five matches during the tournament. The location is perfect too.

Bensheim (40,000 inhabitants) is located midway between Darmstadt and Heidelberg. The town lies in the popular Hessische Bergstraße region, a picturesque landscape with vineyards and woods interspersed with fortresses and castles on the mountain slopes. Thanks to its sheltered location, Bensheim enjoys a pleasant climate. Hence, its nickname 'the German Riviera'. With its historic buildings, the centre of Bensheim is definitely worth a visit.

Basinus Bad

The Basinus bad in Bensheim offers fun for all the family in the indoor pools with water slides. The indoor swimming pool is around 15 minutes' walk from the sports park. There is also an outdoor pool, which is a small  lake 5 minutes' walk from the tournament location.


Twenty minutes' drive from Bensheim is the medieval university town of Heidelberg. Visit the historic centre with its intimate market square and small shopping streets. And don't miss out on the view from the 13th century Heidelberg castle, the 1th century Old Bridge and the student prison, which dates back to the 16th century.

Sporthalls Bensheim

Right from the start of the tournament, participants in the Basinus Trophy are very welcome in a school and sports hall. Both accommodations are about 5 walking minutes from the sports park. The attractive, historic center is also no more than a kilometer from both accommodations. Meals are served in the events hall next to the sports park. The car is not required and can remain standing.
