Passports and visas
you don’t need a visa to travel to Germany, but your passport should be valid for the duration of your trip
remember your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) but also take out travel insurance, even if you’re only going for one night – it could save you a lot of money if you get into difficulties
carry ID with you at all times
if you lose your passport, you will need to get an Emergency Travel Document
Getting to the stadium
The address for the Commerzbank Arena is Mörfelder Landstrasse 362 60528, Frankfurt. It is located approximately 5km from the city centre and is well connected via public transport.
you can travel to the arena by S-Bahn (Lines S8 or S9 – direction of Mainz or Wiesbaden), which take approximately 6 minutes from Frankfurt main railway station
alternatively you can take a tram (Lines 20 & 21) from Frankfurt main station and the closest station is Stadion Straßenbahn
Parking is available for visiting fans. Cars and coaches can be parked in P9; however, it may be necessary to register in advance
At the match
turnstiles open 120-minutes prior to kick off (8:45pm local time). You should be inside the stadium no later than 30-minutes before kick-off
only valid ticket holders will be admitted to the ground. If you have damaged or forged tickets, or have lost or had tickets stolen, you’ll be turned away
access to the stadium can be slow. There will be ticket checks and body searches at the entrance to the turnstiles
in addition to items which would usually be prohibited in the UK & Northern Ireland, the following restrictions apply at the stadium: no bottles and cans are allowed to be brought into the ground and flags and banners with metal poles aren’t allowed
beware of pickpockets and bag snatchers at airports, railway stations, around the town centre and when using public transport. Only carry what you need and leave spare cash and valuables in hotel safety deposits
change money at a bank, hotel, or in exchange kiosks – not on the street (it’s illegal and holding counterfeit money is punished by a prison sentence in Germany)
