  • I was already multiple concerts in the SAP arena always on different places. The view and the sound were always very good. The SAP arena is for concerts in my view highly recommendable. Only the connection to the tram worked last time not.

  • Modern, clean building with ample parking. The location is also very conveniently located, as close to the motorway. Ideal for viewing the local handball.

  • Big, modern, versatile. If you like sport, music or entertainment, this is the place. I was here 2 times for the "Three Investigators" ( ??? ) in different years, and both times, you could easily feel that this location is very special. Inside and outside. Huge parking lot and outside the main city. Connected to the public transport perfectly. The planners were brilliant.
  • Great place for concerts, events, sport. You can see from every place very well. Nice architecture
  • SAP arena stadium is the host of a lot of sport events in Mannheim. It is a good location even with the public transport.
  • Macht mega Spaß sich in dieser großartigen Arena Handball Spiele anzuschauen!
  • As big NHL fans, my wife and I attended an Adler game recently to see how they play on this side of the pond. The Adler are consistently good and apparently have a huge following because Mannheim's soccer team is not very good. The stadium is easy to get to and parking is easy. We were also able to easily buy tickets at the box office even though the game was nearly sold out. They play less often than the NHL and the arenas are smaller so they are often near capacity. The fan section was incredible. So many flags waving and they basically chanted and sang the entire game. The arena had some nice German touches as well such as fairly priced beer (4 euros a glass and since people in Germany can control themselves and don't drive drunk, it wasn't cut off after the second period), and a selection of really good looking wursts on fresh baked buns. Seating in the arena was good, we were in almost the last row at the top and played a little under 30 euros a ticket but had a great center ice view that was completely unobstructed and somehow didn't feel that far from the ice. The best part of the game, besides the Adler winning, was at the end when the team comes back out to salute the fans. The entire team comes back out, some players bring their children, and a local children's team comes out to skate too. The players salute the fans with an Adler (eagle) yell which is a kind of screech accompanied by arm flapping. The mascot also leads the kids in some dancing. It was mostly Gangnam style this time (will that song ever go away?). I thought it was a very nice touch to acknowledge the fans who support them.
