Why Harry Kane is drawn to Thuringia during the European Championships

The UEFA European Football Championship will kick off soon in Germany – and Thuringia will be well represented. At the end of May, the German national team and coach Julian Nagelsmann will spend a week preparing for the tournament at the 5-star “Spa&GolfResort Weimarer Land” hotel south of Erfurt. The “Three Lions”, the English national team with striker Harry Kane, will stay in Blankenhain for the duration of the tournament in June.

The golf resort, which attracts the professional soccer players and their delegations, is a prime example of the high quality that Thuringia has to offer as a hotel and sports location. The hotel complex, built and run by Thuringian entrepreneur Matthias Grafe, has everything you need for the perfect combination of (competitive) sports and a feel-good atmosphere. This includes a world-class sports field, a gym, a spa area and three golf courses. An alternative sports field and a media center are also being built in the town with support from Thuringia and LEG – investments that will boost Blankenhain’s attractiveness for tourists and its urban development. As the European championship shows, Thuringia is a location that has a lot to offer, and the state is pulling out all the stops to make Thuringia even more attractive for entrepreneurs and tourists.
