Well, since the Coliseum all stadiums have more or less been "generic bland blows". The Allianz Arena isn't that generic though. If you look at the 3rd tier you'll notice a bit of a swoop.

And would you rather have those colored seats that have been put into some Portguese stadiums to hide low attendance figures?

Kampflamm, I certainly wouldn't mind that, at least it would look a bit more exciting, I don't know why everyone raves on about that stadium, it's not that good

Does that mean it is one of the decent ones or one of the extremely poor ones?

It must be one of the "extremely poor" ones. Possibly the worst stadium in the Milky Way. Even worse than Shawfield Stadium -

I agree with this.

I've always loved the Berlin Olympic Stadium.

I have been debating with myself as to which I think is my faver Germany stadium.

I think the AA and Berlin Olympic Stadium are tied for first place in my mind.

Is Stuttgart finished by the way? any pictures of that last remaining stand, Stadionwelt doesn't have any new ones
I know this isn't the Arsenal thread, but.....


[IMG]http://www.**************************/emirates/images/image005.jpg[/IMG]

Kind of worryingly similar!

anyway, back to the thread,

I lurve the steep monster stand at Kaiserslautern! and this stadium in general.
Nuremburg and Stuttgart are dog's dinners
The rest are VERY impressive, and very photogenic, except Dortmund, which all though not pretty like Berlin or AA, is gonna be an awesome venue!
For me though, and after reading the info on this thread, Leipzig is my fav, just for its audacious concept, fantastic!

Part of the AWD-Arena was built a fairly long time ago (west stand...or whatever it might be called in English). As you can see in these pics, the new stand is much steeper than the old one.

Old stand is the one with the AWD-Arena writing on the seats











New stand has red seats









I guess the areas in between couldn't be that steep because it would look somewhat akward.

A lot depends on the photo. These ones show the gradient much more clearly -










Nice photo -

The old West Stand was heavily refurbished, although the basic structure is still the same.

It is important to remember though that the reason why they didn't knock it down as well was that it wasn't all that old.

I must say Allianz is the best, but I quite like the frankfurt stadium, with the big screens in the middel & Berlin is amazing!

The architects actually chose grey seats so that as you enter the stadium, the pitch stands out and you're immediately focused on it (at least something like that was their explanation). I don't really care about the color of the seats in a stadium, as long as you don't have this ridiculous Lego scheme that can be seen in some Portuguese stadiums and in Düsseldorf.

Didn't Dortmund have to install new seats before the world cup?
