Olympiastadion Tickets

The Olympiastadion Berlin is one of the most renowned stadiums in football and is steeped in history. Located in the western district of Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf, this stadium has played host to a range of different sports and cultural events.

Originally constructed in 1936 for the Summer Olympics, the stadium was actually used as a hub for the Nazis to promote their ideology at the time. However, as times changed, so did the stadium and its uses.

Since 1963, the Olympiastadion has been the home of second-tier Bundesliga side Hertha BSC. It has also been host to other clubs throughout the years, such as the German national team for select matches and in the mid-2000s, the American football team Berlin Thunder.

Hertha BSC is a club known for its passionate supporters and extensive history, having been in and out of the first tier of German football, the Bundesliga, over the years. The stadium has an official capacity of 74,475, making it one of the largest stadiums in Germany.

The Olympiastadion is also a regular host stadium for the DFB-Pokal (the German Cup) final and in 2009 hosted the World Athletics Championships. Famously, the Olympiastadion was where Usain Bolt set his world records in both the 100m and 200m sprints.

It is not uncommon for the stadium to have been used as a hub for football in Europe, too. In 2015, the Olympiastadion hosted the Champions League final game between Barcelona and Juventus, the pinnacle match in the European football calendar. This game helped the stadium achieve the status of ‘Elite Stadium’ by UEFA, meaning it is considered one of the best stadiums on the continent.

There are also some impressive architectural elements to the stadium. The Bell Tower, a striking feature, offers panoramic views of Berlin. The marathon gate, first used in the 1936 Olympics, remains as a prominent feature. Like many European stadiums converted from athletics, there is a unique blue running track, different from the usual red. This is a nod to Hertha Berlin’s blue colours, providing a striking visual identity within the stadium, which is mostly blue itself.

The Olympiastadion Blocks

The Olympiastadion is in the shape of an oval so, unlike many football stadiums in England, it is not split into four separate stands. Instead, the stadium is split into the North and South side. From there, the stadium is split into a bottom ring and top ring.

The South bottom ring comprises ten blocks from A to H and then S to T. The top ring is split from blocks 1 to 17 and 39 to 41.

The North side bottom ring comprises blocks J to R. The top ring is split between block 18 to block 38.

Where is the best view?

Every seat inside the Olympiastadion Berlin will offer you an excellent vantage point of the match, but if we were to recommend seats for the best view then it would be for the South Stand Blocks A-F or North Stand Blocks M-O.

Running alongside the side of the pitch overlooking the dugout, seats in the Blocks A-F in the South Stand offer you the best view of both the pitch and the rest of the stadium. You’ll also have the chance to see the players and coaches on the bench in much closer detail.

The North Stand Blocks M-O also provides great views of the full pitch from directly opposite the dugouts.

Where are the cheapest seats?

Due to the fact that Euro 2024 tickets are sold out and only available on a small number of exchange platforms, there are no seats that will be cheaper than others. In the regular German season, the top tiers behind each goal contain the cheapest seats.

If this is my first visit, where should I sit?

If you have never been to the stadium before, the best places to sit are in the South Stand Blocks A-F or North Stand Blocks M-O. In these seats, you are given the best view of the pitch, overlooking the rest of the stadium.

However, sitting in South Stand Blocks G or H or in the North Stand Blocks J or K will allow you to sit right next to the stadium’s iconic marathon entrance. Blocks R or T, directly opposite, allow you to view the stadium with the marathon entrance as an iconic backdrop.

What about VIP areas?

There are various VIP areas throughout the Olympiastadion, split between the South and North sides of the stadium.

In the South Side, there are multiple business lounges and executive clubs as well as the Hall of Fame, documenting the most significant moments in the stadium’s history.

In the North side, there are fewer VIP areas with a small number of business lounges that will host important people during the games at Euro 2024.

Can I get tickets to games at Euro 2024?

If you haven’t already purchased tickets for Euro 2024 games at the Olympiastadion, then entry may be difficult.

The first sales of tickets took place in October 2023, with further sales taking place in December 2023 and then again in March and April 2024 for fans of qualified nations.

Some tickets will be resold leading up to the game, so it is worth keeping an eye on official Euro 2024 platforms to check when tickets may go on sale. They will likely be few and far between and so you will need to act quickly to find them.

Is there access for disabled users?

Yes. The underground station at the Olympiastadion is fully accessible by wheelchair. Both the S-Bahn station and the underground stop will guide you to the stadium’s main entrances at the East and South Gates.

Inside the stadium, wheelchair spaces are located in the inner corridor in the east curve (blocks Q, R, S, T), in the marathon gate area (blocks G, H, J, K), on the opposing stand in block N and in the honorary stand.

At the stadium, seats are also provided for those accompanying wheelchair users, with flexible spaces available to arrange seating depending on needs.

Nearby there are also kiosks and disabled-accessible toilets. Any VIP area is also barrier free, making them all wheelchair friendly.

What do I need to do in case of an emergency?

In the unlikely event of an emergency, please reach out to a first responder or volunteer for immediate assistance.

There will be a variety of support services, and response mechanisms will be in place at EURO 2024 to ensure all fans can enjoy their time at the stadium safely.

Can I still turn up without a ticket?

It is not recommended that you arrive at the Olympiastadion without a ticket, as the venue’s area is not designed to hold more supporters than tickets sold.

There are Fan Zones throughout Germany, including the Fan Zone Reichstag in Berlin. Here you will be able to watch games on large screens alongside supporters of other nations.

Which games are being played here at Euro 2024?

There will be six games in total played at the Olympiastadion during Euro 2024. With the Olympiastadion considered to be one of the most significant in the country, it will also have the luxury of hosting the final between whichever teams make it that far.

The six games and the dates they are to be played are:

  • 15/06: Spain vs Croatia
  • 21/06: Poland vs Austria
  • 25/06: Netherlands vs Austria
  • 29/06: Round of 16 – 2A vs 2B
  • 06/07: Quarter-final
  • 14/07: Final

What rules do I need to know before entering?

Please be aware that stadium rules may be different from the regular season, and it is worth noting that there are some items that are not permitted inside.

  • Bags larger than A4 size won’t be allowed into the stadium.
    You can bring a small power bank, no larger than your phone.
  • Make sure you have a valid form of ID.
  • Remember that professional cameras and cane umbrellas are not permitted inside the stadium. However, you can bring a small, fully collapsible umbrella.
  • All EURO 2024 stadiums are smoke-free venues. Therefore, smoking, e-cigarettes and heat-not-burn tobacco products are not allowed. Please be considerate of other fans.

What is travel like to and from the stadium?

The good news is that if you have a match ticket, you’re entitled to a 36 Hour Travel Pass at no additional cost for the entire VBB network, valid from 06:00 on matchday until 18:00 the following day. This is the public transport network in Berlin and will enable you to travel within the state and its surrounding areas.

Can I park at the stadium?

Unfortunately, during Euro 2024 there will be no parking available at the stadium. You will have to make alternative travel plans, and it is recommended that you make use of the public transport network that a game ticket provides free access to.

Can I purchase food at the stadium?

There will be a range of hot and cold food that can be purchased from within the stadium.

The stadium restaurant in the Ostkurve is also open during stadium opening hours. At lunchtime, you usually have two dishes to choose from. In addition, there are always snacks and drinks.

There will be a range of kiosks serving a variety of food and drinks outside of the stadium too, should you wish to eat before going inside.

Where can I eat nearby?

Aside from the kiosks outside the stadium, there is a range of restaurants in the vicinity.

Within a mile of the Olympiastadion, restaurants such as Preussisches Landwirtshaus, Restaurant Epavlis and Ristorante Piccolo Mondo will serve hot food and meals.

Due to the free travel across Berlin with a matchday ticket, there are hundreds of restaurants serving food from Germany and worldwide menus. The city is extremely diverse, and it will be possible to find a restaurant serving whatever is on your mind at the time.

Please note that because Berlin will be busy with tourists on matchdays and throughout the tournament, it would be wise to book a table at a restaurant in advance if you wish to visit one prior to a game.
