The arena is hard to miss when you step out the door of prizeotel Bremen City. Directly opposite you’ll find the ÖVB Arena with the adjoining halls of the Exhibition Centre and Bremen Congress Centre.
When big bands perform in the Hanseatic city, they always play at the ÖVB Arena. Among others, visitors can cheer on Depeche Mode, Die Ärzte or DJ Bobo (yes, him too!). When it’s full, 14,000 spectators fit into the arena.
Highlights of the year include the six-day race in January, the “Halle 7” party hall during the Bremer Freimarkt and the “HanseLife” consumer trade fair. In addition, large indoor sporting events like the Handball Supercup, volleyball and table tennis championships and home games for the Eisbären Bremerhaven in the basketball Bundesliga take place in this arena.
By the way: if the Freimarkt or Osterwiese is not being held in Bremen, there are also lots of parking spaces for any event on “Bürgerweide” directly in front of the arena.
