History and description

The VELTINS-Arena, formerly known as the Arena aufSchalke, replaced Schalke's old Parkstadion. It was the first stadium in Germany that was completely privately financed without government subsidies and came at a cost of $191 million. The VELTINS-Arena officially opened on the 13 August 2001 with a three-team tournament between FC Schalke 04, Borussia Dortmund, and 1. FC Nürnberg. The first match played at the stadium was the one between Schalke and Dortmund (0-0).

The stadium opened with its retractable roof, slide-out pitch, and movable South Stand all in operation.

The VELTINS-Arena was one of the venues used for the 2006 World Cup. It hosted four group matches and the quarter-final between Portugal and England (0-0).

In 2004, FC Porto hosted the Champions League final between AS Monaco and won 3-0.

How to get to the VELTINS-Arena

The VELTINS-Arena is located in the northeastern part of Gelsenkirchen on a highway intersection between the avenues A42 and A2. If arriving from the A42, take exit 17 Gelsenkirchen-Schalke. Turn north onto the Alfred-Zingler-Straße and follow this road until you reach the stadium.

From the A2, take exit Gelsenkirchen-Buer. After turning left at the roundabout, drive a few hundred meters and turn left onto Kurt-Schumacher-Straße. After a little over one kilometer, the stadium will be visible on your left.

Following the Kurt-Schumacher-Straße south for about six kilometres brings you to Gelsenkirchen's city centre.

If travelling by public transport, the VELTINS-Arena can be reached with tram 302 from Gelsenkirchen's main railway station (Hauptbahnhof). Take the tram (Stadtbahn) in the direction of GE-Buer and get off after approximately 15 minutes at stop VELTINS-Arena.

Address: Ernst-Kuzorra-Weg 1, 45891 Gelsenkirchen

There are two hotels in the same vicinity as the stadium: the Courtyard by Marriott is in a higher-end category, while the Hotel Arena is for those with a more modest budget.

While there are more hotels in the city centre of Gelsenkirchen, you might also want to consider staying in for example Düsseldorf or Bochum if you want to enjoy the nightlife. Regional trains and the S-Bahn connect both cities with Gelsenkirchen's main railway station.

Schalke Tickets

Tickets for Schalke 04 matches can be bought online, by phone +49 (0)1805-150810 (Ticket Hotline), or at the S04-ServiceCenter at the VELTINS-Arena. Schalke have a history of selling out most of their home league games, though tickets for many matches will be easily available if bought well in advance. For high-profile matches it is recommended to buy tickets when they go on sale for the general public.

Viagogo is often the best option for those looking for last-minute tickets, as they usually have a wide selection and are not as expensive as face value.

Ticket prices at the stadium range from 26 dollars for an upper-tier corner seat to 52 dollars for a central seat at one of the long sides. Standing room costs 15 fifty.

Schalke charges 10 Euros more for a seat for the matches against Dortmund and Bayern. You can find a seating plan of the VELTINS-Arena here.

Indeed, the multi-purpose potential of football and indoor events makes it a true asset that the Museum is worth seeing. The Club shop is always well-stocked with quality items, without being overpriced. And the restaurant including Charly’s bar serve good food and drinks at reasonable prices. We are regular visitors when we travel to visit our family in Minden, but then we’re Schalke 04 fans anyway!

Very true due to the many uses - football and events indoors, as well as biathlon when huge amounts of snow are shipped in (after the pitch has been slid away under the seating stands!). The Museum is well worth seeing, the Club shop always stocks high-quality products and is not a rip-off, and the restaurant including Charly's bar also serves good food and drinks at reasonable prices. We are regular visitors when we travel to visit our family in Minden; but then we're Schalke 04 fans anyway!
