Winter training camp guide: Hannover 96

Belek - Hannover 96 boss Tayfun Korkut is likely to meet several familiar faces as his charges travel to his parents' homeland for their ten-day winter training camp in Belek, Turkey.

The Stuttgart-born tactician will be aiming to whip his side into shape for the second half of the season, which kicks off with an away game at FC Schalke 04 on 31 January.

bundesliga.com reveals what makes the Antalya Province such a popular winter training camp destination for the Reds - as well as six other Bundesliga sides - and finds out what's on the agenda for the 96ers in the coming days.

Hannover's home

With the five-star Titanic Deluxe boasting its own football pitch, the 96ers could hardly have found a more ideal place to stay. The hotel is situated in the middle of a natural pine forest.

"H96 have arrived at Titanic Deluxe,"

says this tweet from the Hannover Twitter account.

"The sun's actually shining and it's 15 degrees! First training today at 19:15!"

Getting into gear

The 96ers had to do without captain Lars Stindl (foot injury) as Tayfun Korkut's men kicked off their mid-season preparations on Sunday. Japanese right-back Hiroki Sakai, meanwhile, will be teaming up with his club-mates in the coming days as he awaits the birth of his first child.
