Enjoy the Basinus Trophy in Bensheim while it lasts. This atmospheric city in the foothills of the Odenwald mountain range to the north of Heidelberg is putting on a varied programme for its guests – there will be music, shows and a parade. 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.

And given the fact that this cosy town receives plenty of tourists each year, it is clear that this is the perfect location for the Basinus Trophy to be held.

Organiser

The Basinus Trophy is organised by FSG Bensheim in collaboration with the Hessian Football Association and with the support of the city of Bensheim. FSG Bensheim has approximately 20 teams and 500 members.

Sport facillity

The FSG Bensheim sports park is located in a friendly hilly area, a few kilometres from Cologne’s romantic city centre. The sports park features six sports fields, a large clubhouse and a restaurant with a spacious terrace and a grill area during the tournament.

Bensheim

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.

Heidelberg

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.
