“VE Dynamo Boys- trip to Germany and the Czech Republic. As one of the tour coordinators I would simply comment that the staff at Excel was exceptional in handling all our needs pre-trip. They answered numerous questions from our families and quelled all concerns. The trip went off without a hitch and all are grateful for the experience.”

About Germany:

Host of the 2006 World Cup and Winner of the 2014 World Cup, Germany is renowned for producing some of the best soccer talent in the world. Germany is a great destination for teams of all levels, ages and genders. We us many bases in Germany including Munich, Frankfurt, Heidelberg and Dusseldorf.


Munich is the largest city in the south of Germany, about an hour and a half drive from the Alps and close to Austria, Italy, and Switzerland. Like many ancient cities, Munich started as a small town enclosed by a city wall, and over the years expanded out past the wall. The ‘inner city’ occupies this small area where many sites are close and easy to visit. You will get a sense of the ancient walls and see the remaining gates. The city is a haven for all sorts of culture, with a staggering array of museums, a vibrant arts scene and the infamous revels of Oktoberfest.

Sights to see in Munich:  Dachau Concentration Camp, Residenz Palace, Viktualienmarkt, the Olympic Park, Nymphenburg Palace and Gardens, Allianz Arena, and much more!

For more information about Munich see The Official Webpage of Munich.


The capital of Nordrhein-Westfalen, Dusseldorf has emerged as one of Germany’s most elegant, as well as commercial cities. This rambling city along the Rhine, has a large array of parks, gardens and tranquil corners interspersed among sleek, modern business towers. One such lovely setting is romantic Hofgarten Park, which is surrounded by the city’s numerous, world class museums. With its antique squares, cobblestone streets, gothic Rathaus and Castle Tower, a visit to the well-preserved Altstadt, or Old Town, along the Rhein is a must.

Sights to see in Dusseldorf: Hofgarten, Esprit Arena (home to Fortuna Düsseldorf), Stadion im Borussia-Park (home to Borussia Mönchengladbach), Altstadt, and more!
