Visiting the Stadium - Travel
The Stadium is well connected to the A391 motorway via the Hamburger Straße main road which is easily identifiable on a map. From the North, East and West take the A2 Hanover-Berlin until exit 55 (Braunschweig-Nord) and then continue along either the A391 West Bypass or A392 Bypass and then exit onto Hamburger Straße. If you are coming from the South, take the A391 North crossing the A7 Kassel-Hannover and then look for the same Hamburger road exit.
A decent place to park is at Schützenplatz, 500 meteres away from the Hamburger Straße city junction which is has numerous parking spaces, and is only 5 minutes walk from the stadium.
Airports and Flying
The closest airport to the city is technically Braunschweig-Wolfsburg Airport but unfortunately it is only used as a cargo and private aeroplanes with it’s history lying in Military use in the 1930s. This makes Hannover Airport the nearest, and it will take you approximately 30-40 minutes by car, or an 1 hour via train. There are numerous shuttle services which run from the airport and you needn’t worry as public transport in German is very good.
Hotels Near Stadium
There are numerous hotels located along K2/Hamburger Straße which is less than 5 minutes from the Eintracht Stadium such as Stadthotel Braunschweig, Hotel Gifhorn and Hotel Innenstadt. Back within the city centre which is encircled by the Oker river, there is also decent choice with Best Western Stadpalais and City Partner City-Hotel Braunschweig being two slightly more expensive but reliable options to take a look at.
