NeckarPark Stuttgart is one of the biggest and most attractive event sites in Europe. Five state of the art event locations for top international sport, cultural, business and political events line the Mercedesstraße in the district of Bad Cannstatt: the Gottlieb-Daimler-Stadium, the Carl Benz Center, the Mercedes Benz Museum and the Hanns-Martin-Schleyer-Halle and Porsche-Arena hall duo.
Extensively modernised and enlarged in 2006, the 15,500 capacity Hanns-Martin-Schleyer-Halle is the largest indoor arena in south Germany. When officially opened in 1983 it was Europe’s first multi-functional hall and together with the Porsche-Arena, which opened in May 2006, it forms a unique hall duo in the whole of Europe.
The Hall Duo in NeckarPark
Take a closer look and immerse yourself in a hall complex that is unique and doubly good. A light-flooded and airy lobby unites both halls. The elongated Porsche-Arena is elegantly connected to the glass construction through which people stream into both halls. Flexibility is the key and this is also mirrored in the diversity of the events. From superstars in the national and international music scene to sports events and big show productions – the programme of events is as star-studded as it is emotional. More than 15 million visitors to the Hanns-Martin-Schleyer-Halle are clear proof of its attractiveness. Experience the hall duo and the many great moments live and with your own eyes. A warm welcome…
The diversity of events can be enjoyed as a double pack in the Hanns-Martin-Schleyer-Halle and the Porsche-Arena whereby the pre-requisite is a perfect and professional organisational structure. Working behind the scenes, it ensures major performances go off smoothly. This applies to a special degree to company presentations, congresses, annual general meetings and party conferences. An outstanding example is the Porsche Annual General Meeting, which, combined with a big presentation in the Schleyer-Halle, celebrated its premiere in the Porsche-Arena. The hall duo functions in a variety of ways. Spotlight on for a concert in the Schleyer-Halle and at the same time a first-class handball or ice-hockey match in the Porsche-Arena. Or elegant ballroom dancing in one hall and breathtaking jumps at the ADAC Super Cross in the other.
The flexibility of both halls knows virtually no limits thanks to the short changeover times and everything remains high speed. The Porsche-Arena was a cauldron for the Handball World Championship matches whilst at the same time cyclists set off for the Madison around the Schleyer-Halle’s wooden track at the Hofbräu 6 Day Race. Sport is more centre stage in the Porsche Arena. It’s where women tennis players have had to play on ice. Obviously not directly but the permanently installed frozen surface makes it easy to stage ice hockey matches and shows like Holiday on Ice. It means an ice rink can be conjured up quickly in the arena. No matter what the show or sport it is – the audience is always close to the action.
