Despite representing Hoffenheim, the stadium is actually in the small town of Sinsheim. As a result, the public transportation options for coming to the stadium are fairly limited.
The main train station has services that come in from both Heidelberg and Hoffenheim, and with it only being a 15 walk from the station to the stadium, many fans stroll along!
If you really don’t feel like walking though, there are shuttle buses that pick-up fans at the station and run them to the arena – the cost of this is covered in your match ticket!
Otherwise if you are driving there is a lot of parking at the ground itself. However, with its location being out of the way, a lot of fans do drive – so make sure to get there early!
Car: The arena is right next to the highway A6, therefore, make sure you’re head towards that very highway. Exit the A6 at “Sinsheim-Süd” and follow the signs towards the parking lots. Since Sinsheim is pretty much in the middle of nowhere you’ll be most likely required to get there by car. Be aware that all the parking lots right in front of the stadium usually fill up about 30 minutes before the game. You’ll have to park at “Neulandstraße” (P12-P15) if it’s a busy day.
Train & Bus: If you’re getting to Sinsheim by train you should be headed towards Sinsheim Central Station. From here take a bus towards the arena (“Gewerbegebit Sinsheim-Süd”), the free shuttle service starts operating 2 hours before every home game.
The best way to reach the Rhein-Neckar-Arena is simply to walk. There isn’t a great deal in Sinsheim and it is pretty small, which means that the stadium is both out of town, but also around 2km from the train station. You can reach Sinsheim relatively easily from Heidelberg, a beautiful university city, and Heilbronn, a wine-growing town. These two are certainly more interesting places to stay.
