International football in a picturesque setting
International youth football tournament in Ketsch/Mannheim, Germany: Rhein-Neckar Pokal
Participating countries: 
Belgium France Germany Italy Netherlands Switzerland

Are you on the hunt for an international competition in a picturesque setting? Why not try the Rhein-Neckar Pokal? The inaugural tournament in 2019, featuring teams from six countries, was a first-time hit, and included complimentary comments about the good organisation and warm hospitality. The organisers have beautiful sport grounds at their disposal, complete with a traditional 'Stube' (pub) and a tournament centre with festive decorations. And those wanting to take a look outside the sports grounds, can taste the atmosphere of times past with castles and half-timbered houses in the immediate vicinity. The charming historic university city of Heidelberg is a fifteen-minute drive away. Unbeatable!

  • Hotel
  • Youth accommodation

Ketsch (12,700 inhabitants) is located in the Rhine-Neckar region on the banks of the Rhine, within the Speyer, Heidelberg, Mannheim triangle. The region is a prime tourist attraction because of its historic town centres. Speyer and Heidelberg are internationally known for their historic buildings and, besides a historic centre, Mannheim also offers vibrant city life with a large shopping centre, and much more.    


Fifteen minutes' drive from Ketsch 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.

Meininger Heidelberg

The new Meininger hotel is located a few kilometres from the idyllic old town of Heidelberg. The public transport system will take you to most sights and the most important shops within 10 minutes. The hotel has a modern design with a combination of fresh colours and an industrial look. The ground floor is playfully designed with overlapping areas, such as the reception, kiosk, lounge, and recreation room with a game zone and café/bar. The rooms are characterised by contrasting colours and a mix of metal and wood.
