Edge of your seat sporting action in Mannheim, Heidelberg, and Hoffenheim
After days spent touring historic castle ruins and idyllic forests, sometimes travel calls for sports. Depending on the season, the Heidelberg area offers many opportunities to take part in the vibrant German sporting culture. If you are interested in watching a game during your stay in Heidelberg, I can help with ticketing and transportation to some of the region’s most impressive athletic venues.
Soccer/Football in Heidelberg
Our football team is TSG Hoffenheim, who play in the Bundesliga (the best German Football League) just 20 mins away. Their very new, state of the art stadium with a capacity of 35,000 is a great venue to soak up the atmosphere of Germany’s national game.
TSG Hoffenheim have home games every 2 weeks on Saturday (sometimes Sunday) starting at 15:00.
Ice Hockey in Mannheim
If Ice Hockey is your thing, just 15 mins away you can watch the current German champions, The Mannheim Adlers. They play their home games in the highly modern SAP Arena. A 15,000 seater stadium with some of the most passionate fans in Germany. Expect some noise! They play home games usually on Sundays.
