“Very good venue”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

I went all the way to this stadium to watch a Bundesliga match between Bayer Leverkusen and Bayern Muenchen and the experience did not disappoint. To get to this arena does require a bit of a walk from the Leverkusen Mitte station but as long as you follow the signs, or ask around, you will get there. The ticketing staff was friendly as she helped me choose a great seat even though I bought the ticket at matchday! The atmosphere was great with the Leverkusen die hards at the Nord Kurve and the Bayern fans on the away section exchanging chants. The local fans were friendly and the venue is great! Not so big (around 30k capacity) but seats in general are close to the action). The match itself was fast paced, lots of attacking football by the visiting team. Overall, watching Bundesliga live is a must for football fans!

“A Great Family Atmosphere”
Reviewed 14 May 2013

We went to see the last home match of Bayer Leverksen's 2012-13 season. Although it has a smaller capacity compared to some other Bundesliga grounds, the atmosphere was great. The terracing for the home and away fans are diagonally opposite each other. So, the cheering from both corners filled the stadium.
The ground is located close to Leverkusen Mitte railway station which is served with direct trains from both Cologne and Dusseldorf.
We went there for the football, which was great. However, the atmosphere also made it a great day.

“The best soccer team in Germany play here!!”
Reviewed 22 March 2013

I love watching our team, Bayer 04 Leverkusen playing in the Bundesliga here! The atmosphere is great - pity that the food and drink is so over priced, but I guess that's what you have to expect when you're a "captive cunstomer".
