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 Weser Stadium, home of Werder Bremen football club, is located right on the banks of the river Weser, surrounded by green spaces.
The first stadium on this site was built back in 1909. Since then, there have been numerous rebuilds, conversions and extensions. The last major reconstruction project took place between 2008 and 2011, when the entire stadium was modernised and additional seating created. As part of those renovations, the stadium also became energy self-sufficient, thanks to newly installed solar panels.

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 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.
