The dm-arena

A multipurpose hall for fabulous events

With an area of 12,500 m² and a total capacity for up to 14,000 visitors, the dm-arena is one of the biggest event halls in Germany and is impressive by virtue of more than just its size: high-quality materials, modern design, and the elegant wooden ceiling construction create an unmistakeable atmosphere.

A special stage for really big performances. Whether sport, show, company event, or lavish TV production – variable spatial configurations and cutting-edge technology leave nothing to be desired in this multipurpose hall.
