Great atmosphere and makes live football an amazing experience. Make sure you go in the terraces, Beer is also very reasonably priced but as with everywhere in Berlin bring cash.

The traditional Christmas Carol concert is a magic event . German football tribalism plus the use of carols produced an evening never to be forgotten. Tickets are easy to purchase often on sale outside the ground at knock down prices.

The stadium and club have a great friendly reputation. We arrived from London and spoke to many fans in and around the ground. We had drinks together and sang songs and generally enjoyed a good German football atmosphere. HOWEVER in the club bar after the game we were approached by a number of individuals dressed in black North Face jackets.... More

If you want to experiance an almost unique football experiance go to see Union Berlin. Three standing only stands help make it a noisy almost 80s feel football experiance. Brilliant day out! Don't expect expensive burger stands etc, that's not here. Unlike other Bundesliga matches there were very few women here but if you like it loud and fast come... More

Been three times - 2011, 2012 and 2015. Having also been to FC Bayern, Borussia Dortmund, Werder Bremen, FC Köln, Eintracht Frankfurt and Eintracht Braunschweig; I can say Union Berlin is the best footballing experience I've had in Germany. A special club and atmosphere.

I was sat with the SC Paderborn supporters after travelling from Paderborn for the match, but it was fantastic, a brilliant atmosphere with both sets of fans. The German football experience is unbeatable.

Was visiting Berlin with my wife for a long weekend, she kindly allowed me to go to the Union Berlin v Eintracht Braunschweig game on 24/05/15. Firstly for the first time traveller make sure you are pretty certain you're going to get a ticket to a game in the BL or 2.BL as they sell out quite often. I suspected... More

If you're in Berlin and have a chance to check out Union Berlin, you definitely should. The atmosphere before and during the game is really great, even if the action on the pitch isn't quite upto the same standard. Tickets can be purchased on the night, but if you can get to the club shop in the mall opposite Köpenick... More
