Access & Parking
All the information on how to get to SIGNAL IDUNA PARK has been bundled separately and can be found here. Over 10,000 paid parking spaces are available around SIGNAL IDUNA PARK and the Messezentrum Westfalenhallen. Book your parking ticket in advance here. More parking facilities can also be found at the TU Dortmund University from where free shuttle buses operate between the campus and stadium.
Before you enter the ground and the barcode on your ticket is scanned at the turnstiles, you have to undergo a short security check where you and your bag are checked for dangerous objects. These include, among other things, bottles, laser pointers, fireworks and of course weapons of any kind. All details can be found in the stadium regulations.
At SIGNAL IDUNA PARK the primary method of payment is the "Stadiondeckel". This payment card is available at many points inside the stadium as well as in all BVB fan shops. However, there are also selected retail units that accept cash, card payments or mobile payment.
For fans who want to support the visiting team, the blocks on the northern stand and in the north-east corner are best suited. The blocks 60 and 61 on the northern stand are standing room only.
The REWE family block in the north-west corner is best suited for the youngest BVB fans. There is a strict smoking ban and children up to 14 years are offered particularly favourable prices. Regular activities like fan face painting, shooting practice and appearances by BVB mascot Emma make the family block the perfect child-friendly experience.
Anyone who wants to know the ins and outs of Germany’s biggest stadium can experience the SIGNAL IDUNA PARK through an exclusive stadium tour (on days outside of sporting events). This extensive expedition is offered in German and English.
On Bundesliga matchdays, Germany’s biggest football stadium offers space for 81,365 people, 24,454 of which are standing on the Südtribüne, Europe’s largest terrace for standing spectators. You can find more information about the distribution of places in our block plan. Since no standing room is permitted for international fixtures, the respective areas will be seated as well reducing the overall capacity to 66,099.
