Signal Iduna Park

Built to serve as a playing venue for the 1974 World Cup, it's hosted Bundesliga matches, as well as the UEFA Cup Final and games at the 2006 World Cup. It's the biggest stadium in Germany and the seventh-largest in Europe - only two top-flight European clubs (Barcelona and Real Madrid) can boast a bigger stadium.
