National Youth Sports Centre Tenero


The National Youth Sports Centre in Tenero (CST), a branch of the Federal Office of Sports in Magglingen, has been selected as the base for the German national team during EURO 2008. The magnificent location on the shores of Lake Maggiore, the mild climate - typical of the south side of the Alps, the high-quality sports infrastructure and the services available were the key criteria behind this choice.

The CST is well known among sporting organizations, national federations and schools throughout Switzerland as an ideal location for training courses or internships as part of the "Youth and Sport" programme. It offers an ideal combination of promoting amateur sports and supporting up-and-coming athletes.

The centre has various types of indoor and outdoor equipment. It provides all the necessary materials for all disciplines. Course participants may be housed in hostels (up to 260 beds) or at the campsite with permanent tents (approx. 500 places).
