Fancier of historic towns and castles? Then you are at the right address in Weinheim and Viernheim. Both towns are situated in a pretty spot in the Rhine valley just north of the famous Heidelberg and partly on the "Bergstrasse", a well-known tourist route along the vineyards. For football fans there is another special reason to visit Weinheim. This town was the "Heimat" of Sepp Herberger, the legendary coach who led the German national team in 1954 - totally unexpectedly - to the first world title. The stadium of TSG Weinheim is named after him and during the "Bergstraßen Pokal" there is a special Sepp Herberger exhibition in the municipal museum. The organizers are prepared, numerous volunteers are ready to receive the guests at their sports park - the "Bergstraßen Pokal" will be a great football party.

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.

Fifteen minutes' drive from Viernheim und Weinheim 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.
