History and description

The new RheinEnergieStadion was built to replace Cologne's old Müngersdorfer Stadion with the perspective of the city being one of the host cities of the 2006 World Cup. The demolition and construction of the stadium was done gradually in order for FC Köln to keep playing their home matches at the stadium. Works were completed in 2004. The new stadium cost ?119.5 million.

The RheinEnergieStadion hosted five games during the 2006 World Cup, which included four group matches and the round of 16 match between Switzerland and Ukraine.

How to get to RheinEnergieStadion

The RheinEnergieStadion is located in the west of Cologne, just over six kilometers from the city centre. The stadium can easily be reached by car from the A1 motorway, which runs west of the city. Take exit 103 and follow the Aachener Straße east towards the city center.

Tram line 1 departs from the station every 10 minutes.

Match days special tram services connect the Hauptbahnhof railway station and station Neumarkt with the stadium. The tram fare is included in the match ticket.

Address: Aachener Straße 999, 50933 Köln

Eat, drink, and sleep near RheinEnergieStadion

The RheinEnergieStadion is located in the Stadtwald park, a predominantly residential area. There is not much around in terms of eating and drinking, though the lively Cologne inner city is a short tram ride away. There are no hotels near the RheinEnergieStadion, but still a few options not too far away. There is the affordable Dorint Hotel near the A1, which is about just a short walk (but also on tram line 1), and the more expensive Best Western Hotel Brennerscher, which lies a little further south, but can still be walked from to the stadium.

Looking for hotels near RheinEnergieStadion? Some great options are available in Cologne's city centre!

1. FC Köln Tickets

Tickets for Köln matches can be bought online, by phone +49 (0) 1805 32 56 56, from the Fanshop at the RheinEnergieStadion, or at one of the other selected sales points in the city (e.g. the Theaterkasse at Neumarkt metro station). If you are looking to attend a Bundesliga match in Köln, it is advised that you purchase tickets in advance. If you do miss out, there may be some tickets available on the club's official ticket exchange (for face value), or through secondary ticket websites such as viagogo, but expect to pay more than face value.

The price of tickets depends on the opponent. For cheap low-profile matches, seats can be as little as $23.00 and standing costs $16.00. For high profile matches, prices start at $37.00 and go up to $75.00 for seats and $20 for standing.

The Kölner Sportstätten offer guided stadium tours at the RheinEnergieStadion that last for 75 to 90 minutes and include a visit to the FC-Museum. Tours run every day of the week, typically in the morning or afternoon. Check online for upcoming dates and bookings.

Relevant Internet links

FC Cologne's official website, Koelnersportstaetten.de, the RheinEnergieStadion.Koeln.de and Cologne tourist information site Koeln.de all offer official information about the club and its various sport facilities. The public transport agency KVB also has a website for Cologne citizens to find out about all the ways to get around the city. The striker then became the lone player for Mönchengladbach as they changed formation to stop the game. The locals accepted the defeat, generally, with an air of expectation but frustration of course.

Cologne team are often able to sell out most of their games against teams that they are not playing in derbies or against teams with bigger rosters. As such, I strongly suggest signing up as a club member for free and attempting to purchase tickets from the official website before they run out.

Public transport access to the stadium from the city centre is primarily by tram #1, all the way down the long and straight Aachener Straße. After a couple of post-match beers, trams were still frequent and not at all busy.

I really enjoyed the stadium and the staff was very courteous and helpful. I also loved how many fans cycled to and from the game.

And the fans were lively with it, giving it as large as the officially-sectioned away fans. However, at no point did their behavior pose a threat of trouble - even at the end when the Mönchengladbach fans around me were celebrating, the worse that happened was for both sets of fans (in the same rows) giving the middle-finger salute to each other, with both hands.

I am not saying that is a bad thing. Additionally, a Mönchengladbach fan I spoke to said this wasn't their main derby but it was for Köln. Someone could confirm or advise otherwise, perhaps.

In the stadium, beer is priced at 4 Euros for a half-litre and again a decent Bratwurst sampled at 3.70 Euros. In the stadium, credit/debit cards are accepted, along with the ubiquitous stadium card, but no cash. Conversely, the bars in the immediate area are cash only (cash is very much King, in German bars).

Fans of home side Mönchengladbach would rush to the side of the road when an away fan tram passed by, singing a song about Scheiße Mönchengladbach and making a double-handed one-fingered salute. After the tram had passed, they would get back to drinking. This was an exercise in futility, as it was only amusing to watch when someone had been drinking.

After reverting back to being the lone striker, Mönchengladbach changed formation in order to kill the game off. The locals accepted the defeat, generally, with an air of expectation and frustration of course.
