Borussia-Park is the home stadium of Borussia Mönchengladbach. The venue opened in 2004 to replace the club’s former home at Bökelbergstadion which had become severely outdated.
The stadium was official opened on the 30th July 2004 as Borussia Mönchengladbach lost 3-2 to Borussia Dortmund in a Bundesliga fixture. With a capacity of 54,057, it was the largest stadium in the Bundesliga not to host matches at the 2006 FIFA World Cup although it did go on to host two group matches and a semi-final at the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
Tenants: Borussia Mönchengladbach (Bundesliga)
Capacity: 54,057 (domestic matches)/46,249 (international matches)

Location & Travel to Borussia-Park
Borussia-Park is located approximately 5 kilometres west of Mönchengladbach’s city centre, in the west of Germany.
Airport: The closest international airport to the stadium is Düsseldorf Airport, approximately 35 kilometres away and being the third largest in Germany – handling a number of flights to European and International destinations. From the airport take a train to Düsseldorf, where you can catch a connecting service to Mönchengladbach.
Alternatively, Cologne Bonn Airport 60 kilometres to the south and is the seventh largest passenger airport in Germany, with regular flights across Europe. It is possible to catch a direct rail service from the airport to Mönchengladbach.
Bus: On matchdays, the club provides a shuttle bus service to the stadium that run every 5 minutes from the Rheydt train station and Mönchengladbach train station. The service runs from three hours before kick off and ending two hours after the final whistle. On non-matchdays, bus line 17 runs every 20 minutes to the stadium.
Driving & Parking: Take the A61 towards Koblenz and exit at Nordpark, from there the stadium will be signposted. There are almost 10,000 spaces on site so there should be no issue with parking, costing €6 for a full day permit.
Train: The city has two main rail stations – the larger Mönchengladbach Hauptbahnhof and Rheydt Hauptbahnhof. Both stations offer services across the region, although you will likely need to connect in Düsseldorf or Cologne for long distance services.
Neither station is closer to the stadium and will require utilising the free shuttle bus (as above). Matchday tickets also allow free public transport in the local area.
