The stadium has been updated a lot since it’s inception and with the last round of updates coming in 2011, the ground is one of the more recent ones in the country. As such it comes with all the perks of a new stadium. Comfortable seats all around the stadium and excellent sight lines from wherever you are. It really does just come down to what kind of experience you want when deciding on where to sit.
Unsurprisingly, the most vocal of Stuttgart’s fans are to be found in the Canstatter Kurve (North Stand), behind the goal. The Away fans are to be found, somewhat predictably, opposite, in the South-East Corner.
There is a wide range of prices as well here – standing tickets behind the goals will cost €15, with seats in the same area a tad more expensive at €21. Otherwise if you want the best views in the East and West stands, you could pay up to €50.
The Mercedes-Benz Arena is a huge stadium fitting a bit more than 60,000 spectators. Tickets for the running season are a bit cheaper than usually due to the club playing in second league this season. Stances are around 14.50€ to 16€. The other stands are from 22€ to 63.50€. However, you’ll be perfectly fine by choosing category 6 tickets which are behind the goal and on the opposite side of the home fans. They are only about 20-27€ and might end up saving you a lot of money. Nevertheless, keep in mind that you’ll be closer to the guest fans and further away from the home stands, atmosphere experiences might be a bit different.
The seating is as good as anywhere. Rebuilt in 2011, there is nowhere with a bad view and realistically, the only problem that you are likely to face is actually getting a ticket. The famous Cannstatter Kurve goes the whole way around the southern end and features a standing section – €15, though very hard to acquire – and slightly higher priced seated areas further back. The tickets along the side are expensive, but well worth it for the view that is afforded.
