The Hanns-Martin-Schleyer-Halle was opened on 14 September 1983 and then enlarged and modernised in spring 2006. During the course of the building of the Porsche-Arena next door to the Schleyer-Halle, additional stands were incorporated and the spectator and gastronomy areas were enlarged and modernised. A glass and airy connecting building unites the two indoor arenas. The modern foyer with large cloakrooms and spacious piazzas enables both arenas to be used in unison for large events.
