This footballing temple with its four iconic floodlight masts can accommodate 42,100 fans. To get to Werder Bremen's riverside stadium, the Wohninvest Weser Stadium, in the heart of the city, you can walk, cycle, get the tram or even travel by boat.
The wohninvest Weser Stadium, home of Werder Bremen football club, is located right on the banks of the river Weser, surrounded by green spaces.
The first forerunner of the stadium was built in 1909. Since then, however, there have been repeated rebuilds, conversions and extensions. The last major reconstruction phase was from 2008 to 2011, which not only modernised the entire stadium but also created more seats. Since the renovation, the stadium has been able to supply itself with energy thanks to a photovoltaic system.
It's possible to explore the stadium as part of a guided tour. Another attraction is the Wuseum, the Werder Bremen museum. Here, you can learn all about the development of the stadium over the years, along with the history of the club itself. Most locals follow their team's exploits closely every weekend.
Home games offer an additional attraction in the form of the wohninvest Weser Stadium's own landing stage. So why not travel by boat on matchday? Take the ferry from Pier 2 via Martini-Anleger (St. Martin's quay) directly to the stadium. Alternatively, take the Sielwall ferry from the Park+Ride site on the Stadtwerder peninsula to Osterdeich. The stadium is also well within walking distance of the city centre, and can be reached with a short, pleasant stroll along the Weser.
