Best conditions in SalzburgerLand
That is why SalzburgerLand is especially popular. Renowned clubs such as Bayer 04 Leverkusen or FC Schalke 04 have permanently scheduled a training stay in SalzburgerLand in their annual calendar.
There are several reasons why the Austrian province is particularly popular:
- The proximity to Germany enables arrival by bus.
- The mild climate and largely unpolluted air speak in favour of Salzburg.
- The topic of safety also plays a role – Austria is considered a very safe country.
- The training grounds provide optimal conditions.
- The players find the best infrastructure in the top hotels.
- The scenic environment also offers interesting and varied training opportunities off the pitch.
Top football clubs in SalzburgerLand
Bayer 04 Leverkusen
During the summer months, the successful German Bundesliga team and Champions League participant regularly trains in the Zell am See – Kaprun holiday region. At Hotel Tauern Spa the team finds the best prerequisites for being able to prepare as best as possible for the new season.
FC Schalke 04
Only a few kilometres away, the “Königsblauen” (Royal Blues) set up their summer training camp in Mittersill, in der Hohe Tauern National Park holiday region.
The Asian Cup runners-up and East Asian champions spent a week of training in Werfenweng during the summer of 2016. The climax was a friendly international match against Spain in the Red Bull Arena.
Numerous other top international teams such as RSC Anderlecht, RB Leipzig, Arminia Bielefeld or Eintracht Braunschweig have held their training camp in SalzburgerLand.
This creates perfect synergies for SalzburgerLand, and as a result the regions also make a name for themselves as a holiday destination. Fan clubs frequently travel along with the teams. Local guests – at least football enthusiasts – also get something out of these training camps. It is rare that anyone can meet the players in such an informal atmosphere. In addition, fans can also enjoy one or the other test match during their stay in Salzburg.
The “Bulls Camps” sponsored by Austrian champions FC Red Bull Salzburg also prove that much is done for young football talents in SalzburgerLand itself. Young football fans between 6 and 14 years of age can train like a pro under expert guidance at various locations such as Altenmarkt, Leogang, Tamsweg, Fuschl and the provincial capital Salzburg.
