Three-time World Cup winners Germany will use a purpose-built training base in Brazil during next summer's finals.
The under-construction venue, which will be developed by a Munich property firm, will cover 15,000 square metres and will have 60 bedrooms, a training pitch as well as a fitness centre.
The German Football Association says it is not funding the project.
