Owner description: The Commerzbank-Arena stands on the site of its great predecessor – the legendary Frankfurt Waldstadion. It forms an integral part of German sporting history and has always been the focal point of life in the region. The Waldstadion has gone through many changes in the past and has now, at the start of the new millennium, been completely refurbished and given a new strategic concept. The fantastic sportsmen who have played here and the spectacular football matches that have taken place are never to be forgotten.The new arena was built for sports, concerts, business events and all kinds of large gatherings. Depending on the event, it can hold up to 55,000 spectators – multi-functionality is an important aspect. The exact circumference is 860 metres; the length is 210 metres and the width 190 metres. No pillars obstruct direct view onto the pitch and the front rows are only a few metres away from the edge of the field.

Its a very nice stadium. The tram takes you very close. And I watch a match, so if you have some free time, its a good place to know.

Went to watch an Eintracht Frankfurt in February and found the stadium to be modern with good leg room and plenty of places to get food and buy merchandise. To get to the stadium, look for trains that say they are going to Stadion, though I think some of the airport trains stop at the stadium so there is probably a few different options there. The stadium is only a short walk from its train station so just follow the signs or if you are going to a match, just follow the other fans, you can't really get lost.

Once you are at the stadium there is a security checkpoint where they frisk you but this is basically for your safety so its nothing to worry about. There are signs that show you a layout of the arena if you are unsure where your block is and food options are pretty much all around the outside of the arena.

Went to see Eintracht Frankfurt against Tel Aviv in the Europa league earlier in the season.

Great modern ground that keeps in the loud atmosphere of the passionate Frankfurt fans who are a credit to their club.

I saw Frankfurt last season at Hamburg and the fans were really loud then too. Highly recommend a visit.

Don't miss a football game if you happen to be in town on a weekend. The stadium is fairly modern as it was newly built for the 2006 world cup. I have sat in all corners of the stadium (except for where the away fans are ;-) and the view is really good from wherever you sit. I have never had a bad seat. The fans are awesome and I have never seen any trouble at the stadium.

The most convenient way to buy your ticket is either online (just check the Eintracht Frankfurt website, there is also an English version) as you can print the tickets yourself or in one of the ticket shops. There are two shops in the city centre: in the sports shop Sportarena and in the Eintracht shop on Bethmannstraße 19). You can also buy tickets at the stadium on the day of the match if the game is not sold out. The west curve has the best atmosphere so try and get seats that are close to it.

Try and be there early so that you can have a wander around. Many people meet up early to have a few beers and a couple of sausages outside the stadium. I normally try to be there at least 60-90 minutes before kickoff. The stadium also has a cool museum and a fanshop. There is security at the gates so don't carry any bottles with you. You can carry a beer into the stadium as long as it is in a plastic cup.

Getting to the stadium is pretty easy. Either take the S-Bahn S7, S8 or the S9 and get off at the stop Stadion or take the tram numbers 20 or 21 from Hauptbahnhof. I would plan at least 30-40 minutes for the journey. The journey with the S-Bahn is shorter but the walk from the station is a little longer. I tend to prefer the tram but both will get you there. Both the S-Bahn and the tram will get very full very quickly. Do what the locals do and walk the few minutes from the Hauptbahnhof to the tram stop Platz der Republik, buy a beer at the kiosk on the way and get on the tram one stop before everyone else. You can also drive but parking can fill up quickly so don't arrive too late. You can also take a taxi from the city centre (about 20 EUR) but do plan for some traffic.

To buy food and drinks you need to deposit money on a justpay card that you can buy from one of the people wearing green shirts. You can return the card at the end and get back any unused credit. You can buy food and drinks at one of the many stands. There are also people wandering inside the stadium selling beer. There is a deposit on all plastic cups so don't throw them away.
