The Bergstraßen Pokal is a joint project of the football clubs based in Viernheim (34,000 inhabitants) and Weinheim (45,000 inhabitants). The two towns lie at the foot of the popular Odenwald forest, 15 minutes' drive from Mannheim and Heidelberg. Thanks to the historic city of Heidelberg and the natural beauty of the Odenwald forest, the region is a popular destination. In addition, besides a historic centre, Mannheim also offers vibrant city life with a large shopping centre, and more. And since you're in the area: the picturesque 'Marktplatz' in Weinheim is a must-see.
