With affordable match tickets, easy (and, on match days, free) stadium transport and guaranteed big-game atmosphere, Dortmund is the best-attended club in Europe. The so-called Yellow Wall is also the mightiest of home ends.
Now visitors may take advantage of a new scheme involving several hotels and the club management.
Calling itself the ‘Dortmund Adrenalin Trip’, a new series of hotel-and-match packages at Borussia Dortmund has been introduced this season.
Starting at €199, the programme involves two-night weekend stays (plus breakfast) in local hotels from two stars and above, and includes a match ticket, merchandise, a voucher for the fan shop, a drink and snack at the stadium and entry to the club’s excellent Borusseum museum alongside the Signal Iduna Park.
Stays in higher categories of hotels start at €249 – but these may be handily located a short walk from the stadium itself.
These include the swish Steinberger Hotel Dortmund and, opposite, the Pullman Dortmund Hotel. More downscale is the B&B Hotel Dortmund-Messe while, closest to the stadium, the Hotel Dortmund Messe & Kongress got a Mercure makeover last year.
