Welcome (engl. short version)

Welcome to the LANXESS arena

Welcome to the homepage of the LANXESS arena, Europe's biggest and most modern multifunctional arena.

Situated in the heart of Cologne, Germany's media capital in the River Rhine Valley, the LANXESS arena offers a new dimension for indoor events.

The arena with its façade of 8000 square meters of glass is spanned by a steel arc 76 meters high and seats up to 18000 visitors, a capacity that is unique in Germany and the rest of Europe. But it's not only its size that makes the LANXESS arena one of the most attractive locations for international shows and concerts. State-of-the-art stage equipment, a height-adjustable video cube and a multifunctional interior level further distinguishes this exceptional arena. International top stars including Anna Netrebko, Rod Stewart, Kylie Minogue, Paul McCartney, Sting, Whitney Houston, Eric Clapton and Luciano Pavarotti have made the LANXESS arena their own. So have popular entertainment shows like Holiday on Ice, Best of Musical, Carmen, Nabucco, Riverdance and Lord of the Dance. Thanks to its all-purpose features, the LANXESS arena is also well equipped to host some of the most spectacular sports events. Highlights include the Ice Hockey World Championship 2001 and 2010, the Olympia 2004 preparation games of the US basketball Team, the World Cup of Hockey, as well as regular season games held by local ice hockey-, basketball- and handball teams that long have made Cologne a centre of diverse sports entertainment.
