True Love: watching football in the Signal Iduna Park stadium

The floodlights are on. The players run onto the pitch and the crowd erupts – what an atmosphere! A mixture of goosebumps and adrenaline is par for the course at Dortmund’s football temple, formerly the Westfalenstadion – and now officially known as Signal Iduna Park. The home of the Black & Yellows aka BVB.

With a league capacity of 81,359, the stadium is Germany’s largest; in fact its southern grandstand – the Yellow Wall – is the largest terrace for standing spectators in European football. The fans put on some impressive choreography for their team as well, providing a spectacular backdrop to league matches.

“Echte Liebe” - take in a match, stadium tour or visit the museum

You can experience this “echte Liebe” or true love first-hand: join the crowds at a home match or book a stadium tour in a choice of languages. Alternatively, catch up on black and yellow club history at the club’s own museum, the Borusseum.

Tickets for the tour and the Borusseum are available online at the BVB website. Whether you opt for the full adrenaline tour or the express tour, both versions offer an exclusive peek behind the scenes, including the dressing room and the stadium prison cell.
