Running to Headquarters FC Köln, RheinEnergieStadion

Running to Headquarters FC Köln, RheinEnergieStadion/ Utilizing Idhul Eid al-Adha holiday, we also bought a daily ticket to explore the city of Cologne Köln alias. In winter, as now, the darkness faster toward Earth Europe. The air was cold windy load we could not stand being there. In addition to the airport Cologne-Bonn to please his brother, the fan of the aircraft, we see from time to yourself near the headquarters of major league teams in the Bundesliga, FC Köln.

Temple football Cologne and surrounding residents was established since 1923. First name is Mungersdorfer Stadium. Had been renovated twice in 1975 and 2003. Name is now the official sponsor of their deposit, RheinEnergie. The stadium is one of the organizers of the 2006 World Cup field. And in addition to be used as a football field, is also often used as a venue for music concerts. Noted The Rolling Stone, Bon Jovi, Tina Turner, Michael Jackson, Guns N 'Roses, Genesis, and many German musicians ever gig there.

From the central station of Cologne, there is no direct public transport to get there. The supporter or visitor must take the metro to the Neumarkt. From there Strassenbahn new Neumarkt (tram) directly to the stadium. Find tram towards Weiden West (No. 1). Major stops dismissal: RheinEnergieStadion.

We got confused when to stop dismissal. No visible signs of the stadium. Especially when it's drizzling. The view around the stop is a large parking lot, roadways, and small forest with many signposts of the sports complex. We also asked a passerby, giving us instructions.

The layout of the stadium was not far from the bus stop. Just the reverse direction from the direction that our tram ride before, then turn right a bit, it soon became the cage FC Koln. There is no game on Saturday, the atmosphere seemed very quiet. Only one or two people entered and several officers were clean. We immediately capture some images. Not as big as our shadow. Still bigger football field in Hamburg and Nuremberg.

Unique shape makes this stadium dubbed the jewelry box. The shape box with many pillars. In front there are two football fields without guardrail. The capacity is about 45 thousand spectators. At first we were hesitant, go into the fence or not. It was there, unfortunately too if not looked into the grass in the stadium.

We went inside the fence. Museum FC Koln on the left was closed. Being on the right merchandise store open. Patterned goods FC Koln and red dominated sold here. Kaos teams, jackets, sweaters, scarves, gloves, bed linen, towels, key chains, hats, until the waffle maker and refrigerator are sold in this store. On the top floor there is restaurant, too. But we did not go up. Only the photograph and the grass field atmosphere. Most of the red seat, unless a special bench of the fans. In the corners of the field hang-tivi tivi widescreen.

Every Saturday there is a tour takes visitors round the inside of the stadium. If interested, a group can book a tour of the city of Cologne tourist information office to get in and get around.
