Helene Fischer's stadium concert on July 20
No matter what you may think of her music, you have to create something like this first: Not only did Helene Fischer completely sell out the Festhalle five times with her arena tour in the spring, now she's coming to the Commerzbank Arena just a few months later with a completely new stadium show - and has already almost sold it out again. Respect. The arena tour in winter was a really spectacular show, put on stage together with artists of Cirque Du Soleil. You can read our editor's impressions HERE.
So on July 20 Helene Fischer will come to Frankfurt again. As thousands of fans are expected at the Commerzbank Arena for the concert, which will be opened by shooting star Ben Zucker at 19:30, traffic obstructions are almost unavoidable. So you should be prepared for full suburban trains and trams and traffic jams around the arena. However, in order to ensure that the concert is as enjoyable as possible, the organisers have put together a few helpful tips.
The general rule is: allow enough time for your journey to and from the venue. It is best to use public transportation. Do not take large bags, backpacks, cameras, umbrellas, glass bottles or food with you and check in advance which entrance at the stadium leads to your seats.
Travel by public transport:
Special transport services and the KombiTicket will take you to the stadium and home before and after the concert. The ticket for the concert with the corresponding imprint is also valid as a ticket for the return journey with the RMV public transport system in the entire area in 2nd class.
You can get to the Commerzbank Arena with the S-Bahn (S7, S8, S9) - however, there are only a few additional trains due to the tunnel closure in Frankfurt city centre. Therefore, there will definitely be waiting times. Alternatively, you can also use tram line 21. Bus line 61 (between the airport and Südbahnhof) also goes to the Commerzbank Arena.
Traveling by car
In the immediate vicinity of the Commerzbank Arena, the parking lots GLEISDREIECK, WALDPARKPLATZ and ISENBURGER SCHNEISE are available. The car parks are signposted accordingly via the traffic routing. However, parking spaces are quickly in short supply at large events such as this. You should take this into account as well as longer walking distances from the parking lots to the stadium grounds. The parking fee per car is 6,00 EUR
Access to the stadium:
Access to the stadium area is via the designated entrances E1 - E5. If you have purchased VIP Gold/Platinum tickets, you will need to use Entrance E1.
To avoid chaos inside the stadium, the entrances to the seats are divided as follows (and signposted on site):
Arenator 1: Access FRONT OF STAGE standing room right
Arenator 2: Access seating inside
Arenator 3: Access Seating Interior
Arenator 4: Access FOS Standing Room Left
General Security Advice:
As there will be heavy security checks, you should also allow time at the entrance. In order not to hold up the whole thing unnecessarily, you should leave backpacks, handbags larger than A4 as well as larger objects of all kinds (e.g. also umbrellas) at home or in the car! Notebooks, tablets, professional cameras or other devices for audio and video recordings are also prohibited. Food, glass bottles and cans are also not allowed on the premises.
Admission: 5:30 p.m.
Ben sugar approx. 19:30 Uhr

End of the event: ca. 23:00 Uhr
