The UEFA European Championship

The UEFA European Championship has a long history that shows how football in Europe has grown. It started with Henri Delaunay from France, who worked in football and had the idea for a competition where the top teams from Europe would play. The initial version, known as the European Nations’ Cup, started in 1960. At that time, because there were just 17 countries taking part, a lengthy qualifying phase was necessary. As years passed, the competition expanded a lot, with more teams joining and people around the world knowing it better. A big change happened after twenty years in 1980 when they made finals bigger for eight teams, then again they added more to have 16 teams in total by 1996. Nowadays, the UEFA European Championship is an important global soccer tournament that fascinates supporters all over the world with exciting games, unexpected tales of less-favoured teams succeeding, and the celebration of a new champion across Europe every four years.

Where will the Euro 2024 Matches take place?

In Germany this year, for the Championship they have 10 stadiums to play in. To be good for a UEFA game, a stadium must fit up to 30,000 people sitting. While Germany has several stadiums meeting the requirements, only these 10 were selected for the competition. The Rhine-Ruhr metropolitan region hosts most of them. We will review every stadium with some details about it, what matches will happen there and crucially, how you can reach it conveniently from either an airport or your hotel.

Olympiastadion Berlin

Built in the 1930’s for the infamous 1936 Summer Olympics, this stadium is the largest of the bunch to be featured in this year’s championship. Having been used for previous UEFA matches, most notably a number of matches in the 2006 FIFA World Cup, including the final, it was an obvious choice to include it. It shall also serve as the pitch for this year’s final.

Transportation to Gelsenkirchen Arena AufSchalke - Euro 2024

As Gelsenkirchen, where the stadium is, doesn’t have its own airport, if you’re arriving by aeroplane, you’ll most likely be landing at Essen airport, which is the closest large airport to the stadium.

  • There are three main ways to get from Essen Airport (MUC) to the Arena AufSchalke (Veltins-Arena) in Gelsenkirchen for the Euro 2024 matches: train, public transport with a transfer, and a private airport transfer service.
  • By train, you’ll need to take a regional train from the airport station to Essen Hauptbahnhof (main station). From there, catch a long-distance train to Gelsenkirchen Hauptbahnhof. This route offers a comfortable journey with minimal transfers, but can take up to 2.5 hours.
  • For a more budget-friendly option, you can combine a bus ride from the airport to Essen Nordfriedhof with a transfer to the U-Bahn (subway). This takes roughly 50 minutes but might involve more waiting and navigating.
  • Finally, for a hassle-free experience, consider booking a private transfer service with AtoB or a similar company. These pre-arranged car services will pick you up directly from the airport and bring you straight to the stadium, ensuring a comfortable and stress-free journey, especially with luggage.

Frankfurt Arena

Built in 1925, Frankfurt’s Waldstadion has hosted similar events to the previous stadiums, like the 1974 and 2006 FIFA World Cups, NFL Europe’s World Bowl, major concerts, and also remains the home stadium of popular Bundesliga club Eintracht Frankfurt. With its storied legacy and recent renovations, the stadium, now known as Deutsche Bank Park, will host 3 matches in the upcoming Euro 2024 tournament.

Transportation to Frankfurt Waldstadion - Euro 2024

Travelling from Frankfurt Airport to Waldstation for the Euro 2024 matches is convenient, thanks to Frankfurt’s well-connected transport system. For a sustainable option, consider taking the S-Bahn trains S8 or S9, which will get you to the stadium in about 10 minutes. If you prefer the overground trains, the S7, S8, and S9 lines depart from the central station and reach ‘Stadion’ station in roughly 6 minutes, followed by a short 10-15 minute walk.

For those looking for a direct route without the need to navigate public transport, a pre-booked airport transfer offers a seamless journey straight to your destination, ensuring you arrive refreshed and ready for the excitement of the game. While there are various providers, choosing a reliable service like AtoB can enhance your experience with their commitment to comfort and convenience.

Hamburg Volksparkstadion

The home of Hamburger SV, although the broader sport team don’t have anything to do with its original construction. Its current design was finalised in the mid to late 90s, although some subsequent additions have been made. Out of all the stadiums on the list so far, this one of the few that hasn’t played a role in previous international football championships, making 2024 its first major time as a pitch on such level.

Transportation to Hamburg Volksparkstadion - Euro 2024

For public transport enthusiasts, you can hop on the Line 392 bus from Hamburg Airport to Hamburg U Hagenbecks Tierpark, then switch to the Line 22 bus to Hellgrundweg, which is a stone’s throw away from the stadium, taking about 1 hour and 2 minutes. Alternatively, the train is a viable option; take the S11 from Hamburg Airport to Hamburg Dammtor, followed by the S5 to Hamburg Eidelstedt, totaling around 1 hour and 8 minutes. For those preferring a direct route, a taxi will whisk you there in approximately 14 minutes, although may be excessively pricey.

The simplest, and much more affordable than a taxi, method remains a Hamburg airport transfer directly to the stadium, or your accommodation nearby. You can book it online in just a few clicks, and even include child seats, if you’ve got some kids coming along for the games.

Düsseldorf Arena

The Dusseldorf Arena, originally built in 2004, has undergone several name changes throughout its history. Currently known as the Merkur Spiel-Arena, it’s the home stadium for Fortuna Düsseldorf’s football team. In preparation for Euro 2024, the arena will be temporarily rebranded as the Düsseldorf Arena. With its retractable roof offering year-round comfort, the stadium will host 5 games throughout the tournament.

Public Transport:

  • Train: Take a train from Dusseldorf Airport to Düsseldorf Hbf (main station), and then switch to a U-Bahn (subway) that will take you to the Arena. This is a cost-effective and efficient method.
  • Bus: The bus service from the airport can also take you to the main station, where you can transfer to a U-Bahn line that serves the Arena.

Taxi:

A taxi ride from the airport directly to the Arena is the fastest but a much more expensive option. It can be convenient if you’re in a hurry or have a lot of luggage.

Car Rental:

Renting a car at the airport gives you flexibility, especially if you plan to explore the city before or after the match. Take into account that you will need to find parking, which costs a lot, and also will have to pay a hefty insurance fee.

Bike Sharing:

For the environmentally conscious, Dusseldorf has bike-sharing services that you can use to pedal your way to the Arena. Apps like Bolt, Uber, Lime and Tier are all available.

Airport Transfer Service:

For the easiest journey, consider booking an airport transfer service. Companies like AtoB offer pre-booked rides that can be tailored to your schedule, ensuring you arrive at the Arena with ease and comfort.

Cologne Stadium

Cologne’s RheinEnergieStadion has undergone several iterations since its initial construction in 1923. Now the home base for the 1. FC Köln football club, the stadium played a key role in both the 2005 FIFA Confederations Cup and the 2006 FIFA World Cup. As Germany gears up for Euro 2024, the RheinEnergieStadion is poised to take center stage once more, welcoming fans and players alike for this prestigious European football tournament.

It’s the largest football stadium in eastern Germany and has witnessed major events like the 2006 FIFA World Cup. Its recent expansion saw space added for a total of 57,000 seats, with further plans being contemplated by the owners, although likely to come to fruition well after the Euro.

Transportation to Leipzig Stadium - Euro 2024

If you’re interested in travelling with public transport, which may be slightly less efficient and difficult, especially with luggage, then a train would suit you. The Deutsche Bahn Regional offers a service from Leipzig/Halle Flughafen to Leipzig Hbf every 30 minutes, taking approximately 12 minutes.

On the other hand, a bus may seem like a better option – it really depends on how you like to travel. The bus line 37591 operates from Leipzig/Halle Flughafen to Leipzig Hbf Ostseite, with a journey time of around 42 minutes, just look out for the sign posts at the airport for the bus stop.

Finally, for the most convenient option, an airport transfer directly from the airport, to either the stadium, or directly to your accommodation in the city is available. By pre-booking, you won’t even have to worry about the inconvenience of delays or waiting at the station for the car to arrive.
