Football in the „Weimarer Land“

As in the entire Spa & GolfResort Weimarer Land, owner Matthias Grafe has created perfect training conditions with great attention to detail to provide top international footballers with a retreat in Blankenhain, Thuringia. The training facility built in 2021 with one and a half football pitches according to FIFA standards is idyllically embedded in the 18-hole “Goethe Golf Course” and, with its seclusion, offers ideal and best conditions for your football training camp.

The Spa & GolfResort welcomes you on 450 hectares of land and is very well connected logistically thanks to its short access routes and central location. Our facility offers 1.5 football pitches with perfect grass quality. A 3000 m2 spa area with infinity pools, a graduation tower and many other highlights invites you to relax. We offer culinary delights at the highest level with 7 restaurants and bistros ranging from Michelin star to rustic. There is also a wide range of leisure activities throughout the Weimarer Land region and our own 45-hole golf course right next to the hotel.
