    Please consider atmosphere, noise, attendance, fan friendly elements, and the architechture. Thanks.

    Nuremburg's Frankenstadion isn't that nice IMHO. Surely No.1 would have been Wolfsburg old stadium....real crap.

    Some pics I took 2 years ago while standing in the guest section:

    The old Wolfsburg stadium, it was only ......

    When I worked in Wolfsburg I saw it everyday and can`t believe that this is a Bundesliga stadium.

    Actually I thing Bielefeld is the most unfortable, Mainz I dont`t visit after they renew.

    But don't forget the cemetry atmosphere in Munich.

    But the worstest stadiums I ever visit were the old Leverkusen and Uerdingen stadiums. In Uerdingen we were in the guest "blocks", it began to rain and after an half hour we stand till the knuckles in the mud.
    In Leverkusens old stadium the highway (it was open to it) makes more noise than the Lev. fans.

    I forgot the great Kickers Stuttgart stadium. Wow, I think we come to the Kreisklasse. Ten meters high nets to catch the ball, but 2 meter terrasses to stand.

    Uerdingen and K. Stuttgart play not actually the BuLi. But with their old stadiums they did in the 80th and 90th.

    I reckon PileD built all the German stadiums on his own in one day, just using his bare hand..oh, and a pickaxe.

    All stadiums in Germany and Europe are beautiful.
    Visit http://www.worldstadiums.com and all stadiums in Germany are beautiful.
    Among those I think the stadiums of Bochum and Nurenberg are the worst.
    And the one from Dortmund and Bayer Leverkusen are the most beautiful.
    The worst stadiums in the world would be the ones in Vietnam and in Indonesia

    You are right, Bochum, Leverkusen are nice - but small - Dortmund is a fine stadium too, the biggest in the moment in Germany.

    But some very old, I like more:
    Leipzig, Stuttgart, Berlin and Nuremberg all over 100.000 (in the old style).

    Only one of the old was visited -with the old capacity- by me, the "Zentral Stadion" in Leipzig - Leipzig vs. Dresden was the game -, with lower capacity I saw games in Munich (at this time 76.000), Schalke (74.000), Stuttgart (76.000), Nuremberg (76.000) and Berlin (77.000) when they were reduced under 100.000 (exclude Schalke and Munich the Parkstadium and the Olympia Stadium had never a capacity over 100.000).

    As to the stadiums i have visited i definitely thought that freiburg was by far the worst. not only is it ugly, and has "province" written all over it, i also had to stand on fieldlevel down at the fence, having like 5 rows of people in front of me though. in other words i didnt see sh1t...

    i think that nuremberg isnt exactly a great stadium either. i have never been there, but in my oppinion this stadium is a shame for the world cup...

    all the other ones are really nice actually. even in BuLi2 most stadizums are kidna nice, when you take away haching, trier, ahlen, oberhausen and co.

    I dont know what you guys are talking about but the Frankenstadion in Nurnberg is really nice. I went to it like 3 times when I lived in Nurnberg, and I thought it was pretty nice.

    the awayfans area in bochum is the best one of the best in whole germany . so the ruhrstadoin is great .

    the awayfans area in dortmund bites . but the worst guestbloc in germany is in freiburg .

    that's why i would say , that the worst bundesliga stadium is in freiburg or bremen .

    1. Dortmund
    2. Hamburg
    3. Schalke
    4. Berlin
    5. Stuttgart

    I agree. The cantilevered roof is cool. But it's hard to find a bad stadium in the Bundesliga since most have been rebuilt or renovated in the last 10 years.

    Olympia Stadion in Munich is my least favorite. The stands are too far from the field, the roof covers only a part of the seats. It looks great, and it is great for track and field events in the summer. But it's not so great for soccer. I guess that's why they're building a new stadium in Munich.
