A special train stops at the Borussia Dortmund stadium.

The way to the stadium takes place for many fans of Borussia Dortmund for some time under difficult conditions. And it will probably stay that way. At the derby and afterwards.

For many years, special trains brought fans from all directions to the stadium Borussia Dortmund. They’re gone now and won’t be coming back for the time being.

Borussia Dortmund: Special trains will not come back for the time being

They came from Hagen, Schwerte, Paderborn, and even two from Duisburg, Hamm and Lünen. Special trains have brought BVB fans directly to the stadium for a number of years. That was not only convenient, but also a great relief for the Dortmund tram, the main station and a help with the separation of fans.

But they’ve been gone for a while. No more relief trains at BVB. A big change for thousands of fans. A real endurance test for junctions.

Hope of return shattered

The hope of being able to offer special trains again after the first matchday of the new season has also been shattered. And it gets even worse. Also in the near future the service is practically excluded.

The Westfalen-Lippe local transport, which organized most of these trains and ordered them from Deutsche Bahn, has no hopes of returning any time soon.

Of the many relief moves before and after the Borussia Dortmund games, only one remained. After the final whistle, a train takes some fans to Paderborn via Unna and Soest. All other former special train users will have to reorganize themselves in the long term, for better or for worse.
