The Bundesliga has become famous among spectators the world over for one thing in particular – the fan experience.
The Germany World Cup in 2006 saw many stadiums refurbished or completely rebuilt, with the result that the country has some of the biggest and most modern arenas on the globe.
That means big crowds, fantastic atmospheres and a fan-friendly feel that means it’s a must visit for any football supporter. Nickes.Com have been taken fans to the Bundesliga since 1997. Book your hotel and ticket package now!
Perhaps the most famous stadium of them all is Signal Iduna Park, home of Borussia Dortmund. Holding 81,000 and packed out every game, it means Dortmund have the highest average home attendance of any club side. And nearly 30,000 of them gather on the vast south terrace, known as the ‘Yellow Wall’. It’s an unforgettable sight.
Bayern Munich are the most successful German club by a country mile and they play at the space-age style Allianz Arena – where the exterior is illuminated in their red club colours when Bayern are playing.
Dortmund’s big rivals Schalke 04 are in the ultra-modern Veltins Arena that comes complete with a retractable pitch and roof.
Meanwhile the capital city boasts Hertha Berlin, who play in the historic Olympiastadion, home to the 1936 Berlin Olympic Games and stylishly refurbished to be the venue for the 2006 World Cup final.
The list of other big clubs worth visiting is seemingly endless - Borussia Mönchengladbach, Eintracht Frankfurt and Stuttgart to name a few. And even the second division offers great interest, with the likes of Hamburg and FC Köln competing there in 2018/19 alongside cult clubs St Pauli and Union Berlin.
The big Bundesliga games sell out quickly. Don’t miss out, book your hotel and ticket package – with complete peace of mind.
