With demand for tickets inside stadiums vastly outweighing supply, the Euro 2024 fan zones are bound to be popular this summer.

Big screens, large audiences and plenty to eat and drink add to their popularity, meaning watching the match at a fan zone is the next best thing to being at the game itself. 

The popularity of these events is growing exponentially, with many requiring fans to pre-register to reserve a place inside the Euro 2024 fan zones. 

Whether you’re looking for a fan zone in the UK or you want to soak up the atmosphere in Germany itself, we have you covered with all the information you need.

Euro 2024 fan zones – Germany

All of the official Euro 2024 fanzones have been named ‘Euro 2024 festival’ by the event organisers. There will be one of these official fan zones in each of the ten host cities across Germany and each one will allow supporters to enter free of charge. 

Berlin

The official Berlin Euro 2024 fan zone will be held in two separate spaces. The first, at the iconic Brandenburg gate, will see the location transformed into a huge football pitch with artificial grass and ‘the largest goal in the world’. 

 

This fan zone has been designed more as a meeting point for fans, but will still show all fixtures played in Berlin, all of Germany’s games and all quarter-final and semi-final matches. 

The second fan space will be located at Platz der Republik, which is in front of the Reichstag building. 

This is more of a traditional fan zone, which will be open every day throughout the tournament and will show all 51 matches. The Berlin fan zone also boasts the ‘world’s biggest fan pub’ and will also include football pitches for those who want to show off their own skills. 

Munich

The Euro 2024 fan zone at the Olympiapark in Munich looks like a fantastic venue to watch the football and soak up some culture too. 

The motto for this event is ‘Munich celebrates Europe’ and there will be interactive experiences for all ages, live music and performances from local artists to enjoy, as well as different food stalls on offer. 

As well as showing every game on a big screen at Olympic lake, there will be other activities such as live stand up comedy and an open-air cinema. 

Frankfurt

The Euro 2024 fan zone in Frankfurt is located in Mainufer, in a relaxing setting by the river. Here, fans can watch all 51 games at the tournament live on a giant screen with all the usual food and drink on offer. 

 

Cologne

Like Berlin, Cologne has two areas to enjoy. To meet with other fans, enjoy DJ sets and play football, you need to head to Heumarkt at 50667, which is open every day of the tournament. Matches will also be shown on big screens

Otherwise, head to the Public Viewing Tanzbrunnen for a stunning backdrop of the river Rhine and the famous Cologne cathedral, but be aware that only matches played in Cologne, Germany matches and a few select other matches will be screened here. 

Hamburg

Hamburg’s fan zone is at Heiligengeistfeld, 20359. This venue has a huge screen, live entertainment at a beach club and is open every day of the tournament. 

That said, only matches played in Hamburg, Germany games and knockout matches will be shown at this location.  

Dortmund 

There will be two Euro 2024 fan zones in Dortmund. The first is at Friedensplatz and is family friendly, with football activities and mini-tournaments, music, gaming, and screening of every match in the tournament. There are seats and shaded areas available at this location. 

The second is going to be the best place to head to if you’re looking for atmosphere. Located at Westfalenpark close to the stadium itself, this Fan Zone will show all games played in Dortmund, Germany games and the Final, and will host several other high-profile events during the tournament which are yet to be revealed.

Leipzig

Leipzig’s Augustusplatz is already a prominent meeting point in the city and at only 4km away from the stadium, it is ideally located for the tournament. 

There is plenty of fun planned here, with a programme of music, sports and culture, a football pitch with spectator grandstand, a ferris wheel and child friendly activities.

There will be activities for fans across four different locations in Stuttgart. Marktplatz is the place for family-friendly activities, there’s live music at Karlsplatz, food and drinks at Schillerplatz and the public viewing of the matches at Schlossplatz.
