Czech Republic Team Hotel

Lindner Hotel & Sporting Club Wiesensee:
Am Wiesensee, Westerburg.
The Czech Republic have chosen a hotel that's billed as 'ideal for sporting vacations'. The 750,000 square metres of hotel-owned outdoor space leave plenty of room for outdoor activities such as tennis, football, field hockey, a high ropes course with vertical climbing and plenty of golf. The large Wiesensee lake, close by, also offers possibilities for rafting, surfing and sailing, or just for an ordinary swim.

Westerburg is situated between Frankfurt and Köln, east of the A3. The little park and the Town Hall hosting the FIFA World Cup TV-Festival is located at Neustrasse 40a.
