First Team

A change of pace

The Wolves players ate Kaiserschmarrn with fans on Tuesday before visiting the famous Stoderzinken zipline.

Having been pushed to their limits during the first half of their training camp in Schladming, Austria, the Wolves enjoyed a more relaxed schedule on Tuesday. With his players still feeling the effects of Monday’s 1-1 draw with Fenerbahce as well as countless pre-season drills, Oliver Glasner used Tuesday’s session to take his charges on a long bicycle tour. The VfL squad also took part in a small-scale football tennis tournament to loosen their muscles.

After training, players and fans sat down together to eat Kaiserschmarrn, a famous Austrian dessert made from pancakes and raisins. Supporters were able to chat to their VfL heroes, get autographs and take one or two photographs as a souvenir.

Full speed ahead!

The highlight of the day was the Stoderzinken zipline near Gröbming, which is bound to have got the Wolves players’ hearts racing. The biggest of its kind in Europe, this unique facility features four parallel cables, allowing four players at a time to travel two and a half kilometres from 1,600 metres above sea level. 
Travelling at speeds of up to 115 kmph and dropping as low as 160 metres above the ground, the VfL contingent completed the journey unscathed and can now look forward to a day of rest and relaxation on Wednesday.
