Germany is known for it’s vast sporting history particularly in sports such as football, however you may be surprised to know that it is quickly developing its rugby infrastructure around the country making it a great option for rugby teams. A tour here is an opportunity to challenge yourself against local German teams who are as full of enthusiasm and passion for the sport as your team are.

We like to base our teams in Cologne as it offers a great range of activities, restaurants, and accommodation to suit most budgets. It also boasts great access to professional sports. There are also some great options in the buzzing city of Munich too.

We can tailor your tour to suit your requirements. The usual tour length is 3 nights (Mon-Thur), or 4 nights (Mon-Fri).

If you are looking to maximise fixtures or excursions, we would recommend a 4-night tour as you would have plenty of time to fit in 2 fixtures and 2 excursions during your stay.

A totally excellent experience for the boys from start to finish whether travelling, playing rugby or enjoying the facilities.
