Read about individual sports and the possibilities for accommodation below.

FOOTBALL

Football is a unisex team sport. Football is matches, competition, training and training camp.

At Danhostel there are good facilities for football players both on natural grass and artificial turf. Indoor pool, gym, and mountain bike are just some of the possibilities for you and your team when you are in need of a break after a day on the grass and turf.

In addition, Danhostel ensures good, nourishing food which can make any football player happy. Football clubs come to Danhostel because they know that all the necessary details will be cared for by the specific hostel. When football players book training at any Danhostel, a program is prepared for them which includes training times, meal times, room allocation and a test match.

The target groups for training camps are from junior to senior players. The teams come from many different divisions and series, so it is important for them to train with a team that is on the same level.

Danhostel is ready to organise your next football training camp. Danhostel Copenhagen Amager and Danhostel Copenhagen Bellahøj are located close to football facilities.

BADMINTON

Danhostel is driven by community and activity. Across the country, Danhostel offers good facilities for athletes. To get our active guests involved, we have created Danhostel Sport, an initiative aimed especially at teams and individuals who seek the right place to pursue their interests.

Precision and quick movements. Badminton is a sport that requires training, and many clubs organize training camps for players. Danhostel Sport is a number of hostels which offer the best environment for active athletes.

Danhostel Vejen and Vejen Sports Centre operate one of Denmark's most specialized sports centres. This includes sports, exercise and, last but not least, training camps.

"Vejen Sport Centre offers the optimal framework for your next sports camp – regardless of your club or association.   With a host of facilities and activities, great accommodation, meeting rooms, as well as healthy and nutritious meals, we provide all you need when you visit us," says Jakob Sander.

Jakob explains that Danhostel Vejen Sports and Conference Centre quickly saw the opportunities to expand its activities within sports and athletics.  "Many studies show that people are engaging more and more in sports. Therefore, we must also assist them where possible.  We therefore focus heavily on sports, health and community.”

At Danhostel Vejen, badminton and other racquet sports are only a small part of the many activities we offer at training camp. There are also swim halls, athletics stadium, mountain bike tracks, massage, nutritional counseling and much more.  All these facilities attract many active athletes to Danhostel Vejen.

It is important to offer athletes and their teams a total solution – a solution which includes good facilities, beautiful rooms and the right food. Danhostel Vejen Sport and Conference offers a special sports camp, menus, and snacks to take with you on the field to enjoy after a few hours with the shuttlecock.

SWIMMING

Training camp before the championship is very important for many swimmers, so at Danhostel Sport, we do everything to ensure that your training and diet are at a high level.  Danhostel Esbjerg, next door to Denmark’s Swimming Stadium, has extensive experience with swimmers from home and abroad who come to train before competitions.

"Swim clubs come here because of the good training facility with both 25 and 50 metre lanes.   A good diet is incredibly important for swimmers.  Both mealtimes and the menu are tailored to their training," says Marianne Bull, the host at Danhostel Esbjerg, a part of Danhostel Sport.

She continues, “Camps for swimmers last from a weekend up to three weeks, so it is important for them to feel at home when not in the pool.”

Kim W. Larsen, Swim Coach at Gladsaxe Swim Club says, “Danhostel Esbjerg is outstanding.  Swimmers train a lot so it is important for them to stay in a good location.  Danhostel is the best. Good training within walking distance, and the right type of food. In the winter, we like to go abroad, but if we cannot, we prefer to stay at Danhostel Esbjerg."

The host at Danhostel Esbjerg, Marianne Bull, explains that swimmers are a unique type of guests. She says, “Swimmers usually train for about two hours in the morning and two hours in the afternoon. The rest of the day they often use to relax.  Others go to the gym for extra training. Swimmers are very serious about their sport. It is also important that swimmers receive professional treatment at Danhostel. Right from the first contact, the idea is to provide the best possible service.  When we get the initial call, we make sure that we book a swim hall, plan meals, accommodation and so on. In this way, we make sure everything is under control when our guests arrive," says Marianne.

Endorsement from a guest:

"Danhostel Esbjerg is an ideal place for sports camps for all types of swimmers - both younger and elite. The distance to the swim hall and the meals provided makes this hostel the best choice,” says Anne Forsell from Södertörn Swim Club in Sweden. "
