The Volkswagen Arena
The Volkswagen Arena, of course named after automobile manufacturer Volkswagen, was finished in 2002 and replaced the VfL Stadion. While the old stadium could accomodate 20,500 spectators, the new Volkswagen Arena has a capacity of 30,000, of which 8,000 places are standing only and the other 22,000 are seating space. The stadium is comparable to other new constructions like Augsburg and Hoffenheim, although it is, unlike the other two, two-tiered.
Wolfsburg's supporters are situtated in the north, the lower tier is standing space only. Visiting supporters are accomodated in the southeast corner. The upper tier is quite steep so even if you're situated in the top of the upper tier you've got a good view.
How To Get There...
By Car & Where To Park
If you come by car, the address of the Volkswagen Arena is "In den Allerwiesen 1, 38446 Wolfsburg, Deutschland".
There are a couple of parking lots around the stadium and you should have no trouble finding a parking spot, for example in the Allerpark (Allerpark 4, 38448 Wolfsburg, Deutschland), which is only a couple of minutes walk away from the stadium.
By Public Transportation
No need to use public transportation in Wolfsburg, the stadium is only about half a mile away from the main station: leave the station, turn left and cross the Aller on the Stadtbrücke (city bridge) and you should already see the stadium.
Tickets allow you to travel to and from the stadium from 3 hours prior to kick-off until 3 hours after kick-off inside the Traffic Association Region Braunschweig (Verbundtarif Region Braunschweig (VRB)).
These are normal ticket prices for Bundesliga matches, just for your orientation. Top games have slighty higher prices and prices are of course subject to change.

After winning the Bundesliga in 2008/09, the stadium was regularly packed and about half of the games were sold out. Since then, interest has dwindled a bit and only a handful of games are sold out, mostly the games against the usual suspects Bayern and Dortmund as well as the recently promoted Braunschweig.
