It was rebuilt and substantially modernised for the German Track and Field Athletics Championships of 2002. The charm of the stadium is its position in a green area on the boundary of the towns of Bochum and Gelsenkirchen. From the main stand the eye is drawn up to a landmark on the route of industrial culture, the “Stairway to Heaven”, on the site of the former Rheinelbe mine in Gelsenkirchen.
