Germany’s largest events arena offers recreation and entertainment for everyone. Concerts from pop to classic, musicals, sports events and carnival functions and celebrations are hosted here. The LANXESSarena was opened in October 1998 as Cologne arena and offers a total area of 83,700m², accommodating small events of around 7,000 participants to a maximum capacity of 20,000 if the entire arena is utilized. At the Cologne Arena, top stars abound. And if you wish to combine a visit to one of the shows with a weekend trip, then the Dorint Hotel An der Messe Köln is the only place to stay!
