Football Trip to Furth – The Stadium
The Sportpark Ronhof Thomas Sommer was originally opened on 11 September 1910 under the name Sportplatz am Ronhofer Weg gegenüber dem Zentral-Friedhof (English: Sports ground on Ronhof Lane opposite the central cemetery).
It was expanded several times (max. 28,000 capacity) but later reduced to 15,500 and today holds a capacity crowd of 18,000. It was expanded following Fürth’s promotion to the Bundesliga. It remained the Bundesliga’s smallest stadium, though.

Football Trip to Furth – What else to see & do
When planning a football trip to Furth it is always good to know what else there is to see and do in the city. Here are a selection of the best things which I found using our sponsor Lonely Planet. Lonely Planet also has maps of the city, details of all the best pubs, bars and restaurants and travel information from the city.
Unlike Nuremberg, the buildings in Fürth were untouched during the war so there are a number of historic buildings to see.
• Historic city streets. North of the town hall. (Subway stop Fuerth Rathaus)
• Fuerther Freiheit The location of the first train to ever run in Germany. Now the Open-air markets is there.
• Jewish Museum.
• Rundfunk Museum. The Radio Museum of the City of Fuerth
• Rathaus (City hall). Constructed between 1840 and 1850, the building was strongly inspired by the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence.
You can also take a walk in the beautiful Stadt Park (city park). If you walk along the Pegnitz river (which is located adjacent to the park) you will arrive in downtown Nuremberg in about 2 hours, just follow the signs labeled “Nurnberg Altstadt”.
