After 19 months of construction, the Ratiopharm-Arena was officially opened on December 09, 2011. Special attention was paid to the colour design of the corridors and grandstand walkways. With an action area of 1,989 m², a height of 19 metres and its general multi-functionality, the arena claims to be able to host events of all kinds, such as boxing competitions, basketball games, trade fairs and concerts.

The arena can accommodate between 5,500 and 9,000 people for concerts, and for basketball games up to 6,200 seats are available.

Short description
The floor in the Ratiopharm-Arena was designed with a coloured PU-coating with a flake scattering. Despite the transparent sealing, UV stability had to be guaranteed. As there is room for up to 9000 people in the arena, the floor is exposed to high mechanical stress. This is also the reason for the non-slip surface which must be present to ensure the safety of the visitors.

The structure showed cracks in some places, for which there were different causes. Improved statics and higher load capacity were achieved by stiffening the structures, frictional connection of the disturbed foundation and decoupling the components gate, passage hall and gate houses components. Particularly on the western side, intense blackening of the rock surface had built up, which was strongly interlocked with the ground. The deposits were composed of a mixture of soot and plaster. The cleaning process carried out in 1990 with the help of water could only result in a superficial cleaning. In 2002, the newly developed method of particle beam cleaning and cleaning by laser made it possible to remove soot and plaster without destroying the original surface.

The damage patterns indicated a lack of frost resistance as well as no protection against driving rain. The listed façade required extensive frost and moisture protection, but was not allowed to undergo any visual changes.
