Footballers in the Black Forest

The history of the Schlucksee

In football circles, the Schluchsee is known as the 'Schlucksee' (Lake Swallow). It was here that the German national team prepared for the 1982 World Cup in Spain. A clever hotelier convinced the German Football Association that the altitude of the Black Forest Highlands would have a positive effect. Little did they know at the time that altitude training was only effective at 1500 metres above sea level. Training was also sparse during the day. The taxi drivers profited from the national team players, who liked to visit the discos in Waldshut. It is hard to imagine now, but despite the training camp, the hotel continued to operate as normal. Players such as Rummenigge, Littbarksi, Breitner and Matthäus moved around like normal hotel guests, only with a slightly more sporting agenda.
