Waldstadion, Frankfurt am Main

Since July 2005, Frankfurt's Waldstadion has changed its name to the Commerzbank Arena. The 48,500 seating capacity stadium is located in woodlands (hence the original name of Waldstion, meaning forest stadium) south of the city and the River Main.

Getting to the Stadium:

By car, simply follow the A5/A3 to Frankfurter Kreuz and follow the football signs.

From the centre of Frankfurt, drive over the Mainbrücken (bridge over the River Main) towards Sachsenhausen and follow Kennedyallee onto Mörfelder Landstrasse. The stadium, on Otto-Fleck-Schneise, should be over to your right and parking signposted. Most maps will probably still have the name Waldstadion printed on them.

From Frankfurter Hauptbahnhof:
Take the S8 or S9 (Direction Mainz or Wiesbaden) and get off at Sportfeld.

Tram 21 also runs from Frankfurt main station to the stadium (the stop is called Stadion) on match days.

Frankfurt City Airport:
Frankfurter Flughafen is conveniently located close to the A3 (Munich and Köln) and A5 (Hannover and Hamburg) for those who intend to hire a car.

The long-distance railway station is at the AIRail Terminal, right next to Terminal 1. There's also a local railway station for S-Bahn, regional and local trains at Terminal 1, Level 1.

If you're going straight to the stadium from the airport, take the S8 towards Hanau or the S9 towards Offenbach Ost and get off at Sportfeld.

Frankfurt-Hahn Airport:
Hahn Airport, 120 km west of Frankfurt, has developed rapidly in recent years and is served by Ryanair.

Bohr Omnibus run coach services from Hahn airport to Frankfurt and Cologne (Köln).
