Velt­ins Arena

Sta­di­um Rock with Ruhr­pott charme

When Schalke is not playing, the Bochumer is allowed to play here too. Herbert Grönemeyer's arena concerts "Auf Schalke" are legendary. The arena, which holds almost 80,000 spectators, is also attractive for the very big ones in the pop circus: millions of fans have already celebrated their music at U2, Coldplay and Helene Fischer. The arena thus continues a tradition that already began in the Parkstadion with the greats. Pink Floyd, Michael Jackson and the Rolling Stones were among the guests. Understandably, you won't find any insider tips here, but sometimes stadium rock is also something wonderful.
