I was in Gelsenkirchen for the Argentina - Serbia & Montenegro game and used the tram to get from the city centre to the stadium. It's the best way to get to the ground, much quicker than going by car, and it's too far to walk. However, you need to leave the city centre well before kick-off time. We left for the stadium about 90 minutes before kick-off and it was wedged at that stage. If we had left it much later, we may have had difficulty getting on. At the Argentina game, the atmosphere at the stadium was as good as that in town. Coming back after the game, we literally had to fight like Tokyo commuters in rush hour to get onto the small tram. And pray that Saturday's not a hot day, because you'll probably have your face stuck in somebody's armpit for good measure.
Follow the signs from the train station. Or ask - everybody is incredibly friendly
