History and description

The Mercedes-Benz Arena was built between 1929 and 1933, and opened on 26 July 1933 with the German Gymnastics Championships. Named after Adolf Hitler, the stadium could initially hold about 35,000 spectators. Just two years later, the stadium was further expanded with wooden stands to a capacity of seventy thousand places though these stands had to get closed in 1938 due to safety regulations.

It was renamed again in 1974 to Westfalenstadion, and finally in 2011 to Signal Iduna Park.

After the Neckarstadion was expanded, it had a capacity of almost 100,000 people.

In 1959, the stadium hosted the European Cup final between Real Madrid and Stade de Reims. A few years later, in 1962, Atlético Madrid beat Fiorentina 3-0 in the replay of that year's Cup Winner's Cup final.

In the early 1970s, Neckarstadion underwent extensive renovations to prepare it for the 1974 World Cup. These works included reconstruction of the main stand and cover for the opposite side, reducing capacity to 70,500 places.

The 1974 World Cup was characterized by three matches played in the first group stage, with Poland and Sweden playing in the second group phase.

In 1988, the Neckarstadion hosted its second European Cup final. The match between PSV Eindhoven and Benfica was won by the Dutch on penalties after having drawn 0-0 in regular time.

One month later, the stadium was one of the playing venues of the 1988 European Championships. It hosted one first round group match and the semi-final between the Soviet Union and Italy (2-0).

Major redevelopments took place in 1993, with the majority of terraces converted into seats and a roof constructed that covered the entire stadium.

The stadium was renamed to Gottlieb-Daimler-Stadion in response to the company's financing of the construction.

Gottlieb-Daimler-Stadium underwent a renovation in preparation for the 2006 World Cup, which included the reconstruction of the upper tiers.

At the World Cup, the stadium hosted six matches, including four first round group matches, the round of 16 match between England and Ecuador (1-0), and the match for third place between Germany and Portugal (3-1).

The city of Stuttgart decided to convert the stadium into a proper football stadium in 2008. The pitch was lowered, two new stands were built at the short ends, and the other stands extended closer to the pitch.

The stadium's current capacity was increased to its total, and at the same time, the name of the stadium was changed to Mercedes-Benz Arena. The works were completed in the middle of 2011.

How to get to the Mercedes-Benz Arena

The Mercedes-Benz Arena is located in the northeast of Stuttgart on the east bank of the river Neckar, about 4.5 kilometers from Stuttgart's city center and main rail station. If arriving by car from the motorways surrounding Stuttgart, signs with a stadium symbol will direct you, via the B10 and B14, to the stadium.

If using public transport, take the S-Bahn line S1 from the main rail station (Hbf). Take the train in the direction of Kirchheim and get off at stop Neckarpark. From there it is a 5-minute walk to the stadium.

On matchdays, the U11 Stadtbahn line can take you from the main rail station to the stadium (NeckarPark).

It is possible to walk to the stadium from Bad Cannstatt station, which is served by several S-Bahn and other train lines.

Address: Mercedesstraße 87, 70372 Stuttgart (Bad Cannstatt)

Eat, drink, and sleep near the Mercedes-Benz Arena

The Mercedes-Benz Arena is located between the river Neckar and some railroad tracks, surrounded by other sports and event facilities, light industry, and a few warehouses. There are a few places to eat and drink in the building adjacent to the stadium that also houses the Hilton Hotel, but there is not much else around in terms of entertainment. There are plenty of places to eat or drink in nearby Bad Cannstatt though.

If you want to stay as close to the arena as possible, the Hilton Garden Inn NeckarPark may be a better option for you. It is located right across the stadium, but it comes in the higher price ranges. Hotel Discovery is a cheaper alternative located right on the other side of the Neckar.

Attimo Hotel Stuttgart, Motel One, and Hotel Geissler are also located nearby Bad Cannstatt rail station. These three hotels have the added benefit of more dining and drinking options around.

Is there a hotel near the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Stuttgart that you would like to explore? The options can be found here, and for those who want to stay close to the arena, there are several hotels in the city centre.

VfB Stuttgart Tickets

Tickets for VFB Stuttgart games can be purchased online or in person at the Fan-Center at the Mercedes-Benz Arena.

Ticket prices vary, with seats ranging from ?25.00 for a seat at one of the curves to ?55.00 for a central seat at the main stand. Standing costs ?14.50. Prices are increased for high-profile matches.

You can find a seating plan here.

Useful websites

The official website of VFB Stuttgart [VFB.de] is dedicated to providing information about the club and the city of Stuttgart, while the [official tourist website for the Stuttgart region] [VVS.de] is focused on providing information about attractions, events, and services in and around the city. The stadium tour was very in-depth and the guide was fantastic. Some real gems to pick up on were the window in the gents toilet and what feature of this stadium did the Allianz Arena adopt and now pay VfB for? Well worth a visit.

Wonderful Stadium.

Did the stadium tour last year as we were in Stuttgart for Cannstatter Wasen.

The stadium tour was very in-depth and the guide was fantastic (although her English was good, the Germans are generally hospitable).

Some interesting gems to pick up on. Why is there a window in the gents toilet? And what feature of this stadium did the Allianz Arena adopt and now pay VfB for?

Well worth a visit.
