World Cup: where the participating teams are staying

World Cup Germany 2006The 2006 Fifa World Cup (soccer tournament for those of you in the US!) begins in Germany  next month and so, throughout May, I’ll be telling you about where each team is staying – everything from the 5-star  Kempinski-Hotel Falkenstein in Königste (which will be home to favourites Brazil) to the luxurious  Schlosshotel Bühlerhöhe in the Black Forest Mountains (where the England squad will be staying). There’s  8 groups of  4 teams so I’ll be posting one a day throughout May and into early June, just around the time when the teams will be due to arrive in preparation for their first games.

Even the teams couldn’t get rooms there!
