Overview

The Berlin Derby brings together football, politics and history in a once-divided city. In the western side, the rich “Old Lady” Hertha Berlin. In the east, the working-class Union Berlin.

According to former Hertha head coach Ante Covic, the club is “a club for the whole of Berlin, which you can see in the fact that we train in all 12 districts of Berlin”. That is in contrast to Union’s fan base in the neighbourhood of Köpenick, which has traditionally been made up of working-class supporters. While social differences may have played a part in the relationship becoming frosty, this rivalry runs much deeper. There are also underlying historical and political facets that make this fixture so special beyond a simple local derby. It can best be defined, however, as a friendship founded on solidarity that has developed into a rivalry worthy of the nation’s capital.

In the two last games, ultras football culture was on. Flares thrown on the pitch, Union supporters invaded the playing surface to confront Hertha’s players and Union’s trying and talk their own fans down.

When you experience the Berlin Derby with Homefans you will enjoy a memorable, connected and enjoyable tour.  Join a small group of like-minded sports fans for 3 days in Berlin; the match ticket, accommodation and a stadium tour are all included.  During your free time, a local Berlin host will help you enjoy the city like a local.

Are you ready?

Book with total flexibility and security.

Homefans believe the Bundesliga teams will open their stadium to fans from March 2021, therefore we are able to put the Union v Hertha fixture on the 3rd April on sale.  (The first day of the tour will be 2nd April)

However, in the event that fans are not admitted, if you have made a booking the amount paid simply becomes Homefans credit.  You can transfer this to a later date (with no time limit), transfer to another tour, or even give it to a friend.

This flexibility is also offered if for any reason you decide you are not comfortable travelling. For more information visit our “book with confidence” page

FAQs

Do I have to pay the full amount when I book?
No, you can secure your place with a deposit of just 35%, then pay the balance at least 4 weeks before your trip date.
Is now a good time to book? What about COVID-19?
We believe so! After all, don't we all need something to look forward to right now?

Homefans believe that this tour will operate for the April fixture. However, in the event that does not happen the amount paid simply becomes Homefans credit. You can transfer this to a later date (with no time limit), transfer to another tour, or even give it to a friend. This flexibility also applies if you decide to cancel for any reason.
Where in the stadium will we be sitting?
If we know where you will be sitting we always mention this is in the inclusions section.

Unfortunately we are not always able to tell you that at the time of booking, however our destination managers work tirelessly to make sure you get the best seats. We always aim for the long side of the home supporters section.
How many people will be on the tour?
The host for this tour will allow a maximum of 16 people. However this number may not always be met and it may even be possible that your party are on the tour on your own. Higher numbers make for a more sociable experience, lower numbers make for more personalised attention from your host. Look at it as a win/win!
Will I have to share a room?
In order to keep the costs low we always offer prices based on 2 sharing. If you make a booking for an odd number of people you or another member of your party may be paired with another traveller of the same sex. If you wish you may pay a supplement for a guaranteed single room. Simply make your booking as normal and get in touch with us to arrange this.
Where does the tour group meet?
This tour does not include transfers so you will need to make your way to the hotel in central Berlin. If you need help with transfers let us know...
