Almost exactly halfway along the 1,232km long ringer Rhine lies Schloss Hagerhof in the reversed town of Bad Honnef am Rhein. In the foothills of the picturesque Siebengebirge peaks, this secondary/boarding school is dedicated to discovering, exploring, and nurturing the individual talents of its students, both academically and musically, as well as on the basketball court. Schloss Hagerhof attracts the country’s budding basketball stars as it is registered with the Deutsche Basketball Bund (German Basketball Foundation)as a pool for talent spotting and development.
