The VELTINS-Arena tour allows participants to see parts of the stadium that spectators would never get to see on a matchday. As well as seeing the tunnel, the home changing room, the hospitality centre, the media facilities and chapel, fans will see a number of exciting places* as well as being treated to a number of anecdotes and tales about the history of the club.
You’ll learn a lot about how the multi-functional arena works – the tour will teach you about how the pitch can be moved, how the roof can be opened and closed and how the video cube functions. In short, you’re guaranteed to have a thrilling, yet educational, experience.
Arena tours last roughly 75 minutes and are guided by people who can also speak English. The fee also includes admittance to the Schalke Museum.
* The tour could be cut short if large events, which require a lot of work behind the scenes, are taking place in the VELTINS-Arena.
