We booked a personalised English speaking tour and were taken round the stadium by Birgit who was an excellent guide providing an informative history of SV Hamburg, their fans and the stadium itself. Great to get 'behind the scenes' as well as pitch-side and an added bonus that the 1st team was training whilst we were there too. Were made to feel really welcome by all the staff and well worth a visit if you're a football fan

Easy to get to on sBahn, excellent stadium and atmosphere. It can be loud and slightly intimidating if not used to large crowds but very safe on my visit.

Tookthe opportunity to take in a HSV game while in Hamburg. Purchased tickets on line through HSV page and they were posted to me. Easy. Travelled to the stadium on the S-Bahn from central Hamburg. It was busy (so allow plenry of time) and lots of people couldn't get on trains as they were packed. The station is a good 15 minute walk through the park but just follow the crowds - there will be 50,000 so you won't be alone. Easy access to the stadium with lots of pople willing to show you the way. Once inside its a great arena, fantastic atmosphere and although HSV are in league 2 now the fans backed them all the way. Getting back to central hamburg was easy. Left the ground and onto a shuttle bus that took us to the S-Bahn and from there simple trip back to the mainstation. Definitly worth the effort if you are in Hamburg and like football.

Regarded as something of a quintessential away day for fans of some British clubs, the Volksparkstadion, home of Hamburger SV would be my second experience of a German football match, and it would act to perfectly wash the rather poor taste the one prior left in my mouth. I had genuine reservations about scoring a ticket for HSV, despite the fact they have been demoted to Germany's second tier, and were playing on a Monday night HSV still average between 40-50,000 spectators, which realistically is quite remarkable. Feeling ominous, given that they were due to take on FC Koln, another bigger side slumming it in the Bundesliga 2, I purchased my ticket pretty much straight off the plane in the Hamburg store at the city centre. As with all German teams, one of the reasons it is regarding as the holy grail is the low ticket prices, and as with pretty much every German game I've been to before or after, it is true that tickets for less than €20 do exist, in the standing section, however don't expect to get one of these, as they always go first, to the actual fans. As they should to be honest. With this said, my ticket was only around €25, which I'm not going to complain about. Transport to the stadium is relatively simple from the city centre, situated on a U-Bahn line you can get direct from Hamburg Hauptbahnhof station. Once you do reach the designated stop be warned it is a bit of a walk, maybe 20-25 minutes to the actual ground, which is surrounded by the fairly surreal combination of woodland and an industrial facility. Arrival at the stadium itself will find an area somewhat suspiciously absent of vendors, however I did locate a small bar with outside terrace selling bratwurst in the immediate vicinity. Accessing the stadium itself grants you a much more varied selection of foodstuffs. While the sausage-based fare is still on offer, you can also try Hamburg's local speciality the Fischbrotchen (basically a breaded fish roll) and needless to say the other 'holy grail' of German football the pint of lager is available. Once you arrive at your seat, depending on what game you attend, you might be somewhat taken aback by Germany's fairly relaxed take on segregation. While Hamburg have a dedicated section behind one goal, and the away fans will receive a small dedicated allocation, which is largely taken up by their Ultras, in the rest of the stadium away fans are free to buy a ticket and mix in with home supporters. Admittedly it's going to be a majority home support, but it is quite strange realising you're sitting next to someone supporting the other team. It's testament to how safe this is that despite the two teams I saw being involved in a legit table-topping clash, no extra segregation was implemented or needed as Hamburg and Koln fans happily chatted in the concourse despite the high stakes of the game. The slightly mixed crowd also doesn't dillute the atmosphere thankfully, and both sets of supporters were in great voice. Hamburg especially given a late winner gave them top spot in the league at the time. The actual stadium itself is also worthy of praise. During league use it takes a capacity of 57,000, which is reduced for European games to the still not too shabby 51,500. This is accomplished by fitting seats into the standing sections. The quality of the facilities are top notch, the seats decent and the views good from pretty much all over the park. The following day I attended a Stadium tour, which happen a few times daily. It was stressed to me that this would only be in German, but the guide was kind enough to run through pretty much everything in English with me. All in it covers pretty much everything you'd want from a stadium tour, taking you up around the stands to let you see the various view points, into the (away) dressing room, showcase how the standing-into-seating works, up the tunnel and into the dugout area. All in it was pretty good, and the host going out of his way to ensure I knew what was going on was a real touch of class. Following the tour, you also have access to the club's on-site museum, which is equally worth a look. While many teams with recent stadiums have expansive museums built on or next to their stadiums, Hamburg's is surprisingly modest in size given the fairly impressive haul in it. Definitely worth a look for any football fan, the somewhat understated layout of it actually adds a degree of charm and personality that a lot of these lack. Truth be told, this is one of my favourite things about the Volksparkstadion in general. Rebuilt from scratch in 1998, the stadium is recent enough to be in excellent shape, but still managed to retain some of that character that so many modern stadiums lack. Perfectly sized, with a great fanbase doing their best to fill it out, I'd definitely recommed any football fan visiting Germany to try take in a game, or at very least the tour here.

Went to watch the last game of the season and was impressed with the stadium and fan base with over 51,000 people there for a nothing to play for game. Plenty of food stalls etc. The journey in on the underground is cramped and we left earlier not to be caught up on the way back. It is about a 20 minute walk from the train station to the ground. Never got chance to go to the museum so give yourself plenty of time and make sure you go to the right area of the ground as you cannot fully walk around the stadium and have a bit of a detour.
