Visited the stadium with my son, and also went to the Bayer Leverkusen game the following day, so was able to compare the overall experience of the two, while remembering the former is Bundesliga 2 whereas BayerL is B1. Loved this stadium, for its modern feel, cleanliness, amenities, and atmosphere. Now ...don't expect EPL type atmosphere, generally very few crowds... More

I have done a lot of ground hopping in Germany and this is one of my least favourite stadiums for atmosphere. I think the stadium is fantastic once you get inside but it doesn't quite seem to connect with Fortuna Dusseldorf as a club. Apart from the Ultras who are constantly singing in their section, I found the atmosphere in... More

Was here for a 2. Bundesliga match between Fortuna Dusseldorf and Hannover 96. The ground is a bit of a trek from the Hauptbahnhof. Around 15-25 minutes on public transport but it's accessible and takes you right to the ground. The stadium itself is huge! Easy to find your seats and if you have trouble, ask the security or stadium... More

This is a mid range stadium If you want to compare it with Camp Nou in Barcelona . It is good for friendly match . The design is average .

The transport links to this stadium are fantastic and really well organised especially when dealing with such large numbers, the cost of the train travel was actually included with my ticket to the boxing which was a real pleasant surprise especially when i went to pay for a ticket only to be told it was already purchased with the ticket...

We arrived late to the game due to a delay at the airport, apart from a few fans and stewards milling about you couldn't even tell there was a game on! However, after eventually climbing our way up to our seats (£15) I was surprised at the atmosphere and noise created from a stadium that was around 75% full. Seats... More

Easy to reach by train/Ubahn U78 from the Dusseldorf Hauptbahnhof. Impressive stadium from the outside, this place is Huge! However, it seemed to be all closed up when we visited. Maintenance were working outside. We couldn't find entrance or shop/ticket booths as it all seemed shut off. We would like to return for a tour and a football game.

Traffic to park was awful. Had workers trying to help direct traffic but wasn't as helpful as it should have been. Parking was in a field. Not a parking garage. I recommend looking into public transportation to and from the arena. Check your ticket, it should have a combo ticket for free public transportation to and from the show a... More
