- Below you will also find the letter to fans from the Bielefeld police:
Travel by car:
- From Stapenhorststraße (coming from the city centre) turn right into Melanchthonstraße. After 100m on the left is the entrance to approx. 20 disabled parking spaces, which are close to the disabled entrance and can only be used with a generally valid disabled parking permit.
- It is advisable to register in advance with the fans representative for fans with disabilities (email@example.com) so that access can be made via Melanchthonstraße. The car park can only be used with a widely recognised disabled parking permit. As there is no reservation for parking spaces, early arrival is recommended. If the car park is full, you will have to resort to other parking options. We recommend using the Bielefeld University multi-storey car park and then taking the barrier-free tram line 4 in the direction of the town hall to the "Oetker-Halle" stop. Your ticket is valid for three hours before and after the match as a ticket for public transport. Due to a lack of space, the car park is not suitable for cars and vans which are particularly long.
