Arrival and departure

Travel information for the Union game – stretch of railway and B1 closed

  • image

Borussia Dortmund will host Union Berlin at SIGNAL IDUNA PARK on Saturday afternoon (kick-off 15:30 CET). Please note when travelling that the stretch of railway between Dortmund Hauptbahnhof and the stadium is closed due to renovation work and that the public transport offering is greatly reduced. A section of the B1 is also closed.

Complete closure of the B1

From 4 October, a new road surface will be applied to a section of the B1. A full closure has been set up between B236 and Semerteichstraße (direction of travel towards Bochum). The section of road will be reopened to traffic at 05:00 CET on Monday 9 November, meaning the B1 will still be closed for the home game against Union Berlin (7/10).

Train services

Deutsche Bahn is renovating 2.2 kilometres of rails, sleepers and ballast on a stretch of track up until 8 October. The home game against Union Berlin will take place during the period of closure.

Trains cannot stop at the Signal-Iduna-Park train station. The only exception is the RB 53 from Iserlohn/Schwerte.

The trains on line RE 57 (DB Regio) between Dortmund Hbf and Fröndenberg will be diverted. The Dortmund-Hörde stop will be omitted; alternatively, the trains will stop at Witten Hbf. and Schwerte (Ruhr).

The trains on lines RB 53 (DB Regio) and RB 59 (eurobahn) will be cancelled between Dortmund Hbf. and Dortmund-Hörde. As a replacement, buses will stop at all stops. In addition, the U-Bahn line U41 can be used.

The trains on line RB 52 (DB Regio) are cancelled between Dortmund Hbf. and Herdecke. Buses will run as a replacement and stop at all stops.

It is strongly recommended that you choose alternative arrival and departure options. Stops will be made at Dortmund-Hbf., Dortmund-Möllerbrücke (S4) and Dortmund-Hörde. From there, you can use the Stadtbahn and/or the rail replacement service or walk to the stadium.


The RB 53 will depart Iserlohn at 12:51 and 13:51 and arrive at Dortmund Signal Iduna Park at 13:37 and 14:37.

Two special TRI trains stopping at Bönen, Unna, Holzwickede, Do.-Sölde and Do.-Aplerbeck will depart from Hamm at 13:10 and 13:30 and arrive at Do.-Hörde at 13:41 and 14:01.

The Regionalexpress (RE) 57 will run from Bestwig (via Meschede, Freienohl, Oeventrop, Arnsberg, Wickede, Fröndenberg) to Dortmund-Hbf without any further stops.

A new service on offer since December 2022 is the connection from Siegen (via Kreuztal, Kirchhundem, Lennestadt, Finnentrop, Plettenberg, Werdohl, Altena, Letmathe and Witten) with the Intercity (IC) 34 or the RE 34, departing from Siegen at 12:08 and arriving at Do.-Hbf at 13:59 and departing from Siegen at 13:04 and arriving at Do.-Hbf at 14:58. On the IC 34, the local transport tariff applies and the match ticket is therefore valid.

Regular services run to Do.-Hbf from the direction of Münster/Coesfeld/Lünen as well as Hamm/Kamen.


The RB 53 will depart Dortmund Signal Iduna Park in the direction of Iserlohn via Schwerte at 18:24 and 19:24.
