Description: Preußenstadion

Opened in 1926, this stadium was the first in Germany to have its own railway station (now defunct). And rightly so, as it was able to hold over 40,000 people on the terraced embankments.

Over the years capacity started falling and now stands at 15,050. However, it’s not infrastructure  or safety, but noise concerns that led to this limit. For games of major importance up to 18,500 people are allowed inside.

In 2008 extensive redevelopment of the stadium began. First new roof was installed over northern sections, which remained standing-only. Then, in 2009 new south stand (main one) was opened – covered and seated, also including press, VIP and business seats. A year after new scoreboard came, in 2011 new floodlights and in 2012 new pitch with under-soil heating.
