    Munich Sports & Outdoors

    A big day out. At the Allianz Arena for FC Bayern v Freiburg. 1st against 5th, but Bayern had clinched the league title the week before. They’d also put Barcelona to the sword during the week in Champions League action. It was a real experience, only slightly spoiled by the football. Real end of season stuff. Bayern won 1-0 through a cross from...

    The local soccer club of Karlsruhe is called the KSC - Karlsruher Sport Club. They have had their ups and downs during the past decade, but their fans are great and support their team - no matter how good or bad they play.

    Berlin Sports & Outdoors

    This is a wonderful, relaxing sauna, swimming and spa center atop the Europa Center with a inspiring view of central Berlin. All activities are "mixed" in the Northern European sense of things so you will run into men as well as women completely naked (that is why it is so relaxing since it's no big thing). Here are some tips to enjoy your...

    Berlin Sports & Outdoors

    The Berlin Halfmarathon is a very special sight-seeing tour. We started running near the cathedral, went through the Brandenburger Gate after one or two km and then passed many more of the sights of Berlin. Running through the gate still brought tears in my eyes, thinking about how tightly closed it was 21 years ago, I suppose this means I'm...

    Sometimes one is lucky enough to get into places where one actually shouldn't be. Now, I do realise that for most people it's nothing spectacular to sit on a substitute bench in a stadium which belongs to a team in the second German division. But I'm sure there are a few out there who understands me...? No? No one...? Geez. Anyway, it was the day...

    Football in Germany is hugely popular, but unlike in England you can expect to see a top flight game for a reasonable price.

    It used to be that you couldn't go on a river cruise with your own boot without hiring a local skipper, or at least nothing short of going through all of the red tape of getting an inland water way pilot's license.

    The Germans have a long tradition when it comes to sailing. In bygone days, even the German Kaiser (Emperor) had his own racing sail boat. This sport is one of the "secret" sport activities in Germany, because it doesn't always get a lot of media attention, like soccer, skiing, car racing and tennis do. For instance did you know the winner of the...
