“Modern but good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

It's a real footy ground!

We've now been there 4 times and haven't had a bad experience yet.

It's convenient and well signposted from Leverkusen Mitte.

“UEFA game”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2011

Just left bayarena after watching Leverkusen beat Valencia so here is the scoop...the stadium is 15 minutes in the s-bahn from Koln just a few euro. You do have to buy a concession credit card to buy food or drinks and you can only pay cash to load it unless you have a German chip card which we did not. One thing we learned is after the game you can turn it back in and get your 10euro deposit and any balance back. There are no ATMs in the stadium so bring cash. It seems like Koln in general is averse to credit cards. Also if you go to a FIFA game you should know that the beer they are selling you is non-alcoholic so don't waste your money. All in all the stadium was great. Good atmosPhere great futbol and tight security so it's safe. Love germany

“Saw a football match here. About a one...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2010

Saw a football match here. About a one kilometer walk from train station through a park. Entrances are a little tough, you must enter through the gates for your section, then you are free to wander. A little frustrating to walk to gate nearest team shop only to be turned away because your seats aren't near that gate. Team store was too crowded, they really should meter the traffic out a little, I probably would have bought more if I could have moved around and seen the merchandise. Concession stands accept only the chip card, €5 just to get the card then must load a minimum of €10, terrible value for someone only going to one game who wants only one or two drinks. Not a bad seat in the house though, away fans numerous but lots of police there so order was maintained. Ok for kids.
