Köln Arena, Cologne
The Arena is in located in the proximity of Messe/Deutz S-Bahn train station. It is easy to find, since it is the only tall building in the area (blue, cyllindrical shape). The views from the top are outstanding, but..... rather NOT for the photographers! The observation deck is glass-screened and the glare prevents from taking some really pleasing shots. Unfortunately.
ice hockey game.. is soooo coooool. not only because they play on ice but also there's some fighting and you know.. the 2 minutes penalty in glass jail.. hehehe. i like to look at face of the player in the jail. kkk.
Germany's largest and most modern multifunctional events hall, which can accommodate 18,000 spectators.
