British World Cup Team in Black Forest
With the Germans in Berlin and the Americans in Hamburg, the British World Cup Team has decided to take up residence high in the Black Forest at the Schlosshotel Bühlerhöhe. The hotel is situated near the Alsatian border in a renovated Baroque-style castle that was built between 1911 and 1914. It is one of the most famous spa resorts in Germany and pumps in its own spring water. At 2,500 feet above sea level, the hotel looks as though it is a castle in the clouds, straight out of a fairy tale. It has 90 guest rooms, all with high speed internet access and television, of course.
The only guests at the hotel for the month that the British football team intends to stay there, from June 5-July 9, will be the Football Association's party of 55 and the BBC staff covering the World Cup.
