However, August is starting off with a minor restriction: on August 1st and 2nd, the visitor centre will remain closed. Access to the stadium is possible via the southern gate at Coubertinplatz. Individual sightseeing is not possible on these two days. If you want to take part in one of our public Highlight tours, you must book your ticket in advance via our online shop, as we cannot offer payment on site.
Meanwhile, the 2. Bundesliga season is starting off and Hertha BSC are celebrating their home premiere on the 2nd matchday on Friday, August 4th against SV Wehen Wiesbaden. On Saturday, August 26th, the 4th matchday will be played against SpVgg Greuther Fürth. Tickets for the home games are available in the Hertha BSC ticket shop.
