The terrain was called English district of Dresden, where the bourgeoisie and the nobility settled down.[6] The function was been of these with 8 courts equipped venue including: flat velodrome, tennis, cricket and one for soccer. The quietly rest became a playground, than the sports culture was not in such a high level, in 1874. Care about this courts has the administration of the city of Dresden and than a little time ago, the "Verein für Volksport Dresden with the Dresden English Football Club. The Dresden Englisch Football Club belonged to the first soccer clubs in Eurasia and here starts one of the first competitors whose flang the leather ball in the net. "With naked legs!". Until March 10, 1894, was never lost a game (during 20 years record period), without to concede a goal. One of the first soccer players were: Beb (Captain), Burchard, Graham, Crossley, Spencer, Atkins, Ravenscraft, Johnson, le Maistre, Luxmoore and Young. The first president was been of club and venue the Anglican Rev. Bowden. Also here was the birth of the youth football, which led to invincibility versus other clubs. In 1883, the sports meadow at the Güntzwiesen in first time recorded, for the public interrests of organized gymnastics competitions. 1885 taken place the VI. German Gymnastics Festival, transl.: Deutsches Turnfest, with nearly 20,000 participants and 270,000 marching athletes[7] from the today known Deutscher Turnerbund.[8] In 1896,[9] the city of Dresden purchased additional surrounding land to setting up to coherent life standard. In 1896 it was finally first mentioned on the site of today's Rudolf Harbig Stadium a sports ground, which formed, together with seven other places the municipal festival venue. The ground of this constructed stadium, was a part of about 8 courts, which every citizen of Dresden could use for free. The surface amounts over 70,000m². The completely area was still well-kept. Every few years the area was advanced. The exact building year of the swimming pool, which is the Georg Arnold Bath isn't known today, but is was a part of this stadium, for a long duration. That is which what to know only insiders. The bath has a 5m diving platform with extra stands for swimming competitions. These should be demolished in the WWII again. Costs amounts for all about 36,000 RM.

Except Friedrich Ludwig Jahn inventioned the gymnastics, the pupils of schools in Dresden were the first which used the devices, before English or Americans of this city. The Americans brought the cricket tradition there. The Dresden English Football Club become the successor of FC Dresdensia, in black and yellow. It only took place friendly matches with a maximum of thousand viewers less than the athletes on the ground Güntzwiesen. Before a creation of a tribunes, would it came nearly for a time of big fountains. But the German Imperium lose the World War I and the town hall has only liabilities because of reparations to pay. So it come the time of the noble donator, by an agent. He should be a patron of the new stadium, because he donated. 1922, on December 21, workers give the earth the first groundbreaking. A quarter year later, the antan modern, up-to-date stadium has more than 24,000 admissions, including 300 seated and sheltered places, of the opposite where is the VIP today. The suites was being located at the south side, includes an marshalling place for parades of the inside through the north side.[10] There was located before the swimming pool was been a popular promotion mile. The stadium was completed on June 16, 1923, at a cost of 500,000 German reichsmark allocated for the expansion to Ilgen-Kampfbahn centrally located in the inner city. Named after the Freemason and Saxon royalist and inventor of the rat poison: Friedrich Hermann Ilgen (18561940), as recently as 1937. Before, the English and Americans were disliked of the citizen of Dresden and gone with the wind.[11] He has spoken an opening poem: The following provides the lyrics of the "Ilgen address" as written by himself. Only one verse is currently known at the archive of the city of Dresden.[12]

German English
Poem of the Ilgen Kampfbahn

Durch opferwill'gen Bürgers Sinn geschaffen
Als deutsches Volk in tiefer Not rang um sein Dasein.
Sei eine Stätte freud'gen Kampfs der Jugend,
Auf der ein neu und frei Geschlecht erstarke,
Das Vorwärts drängt zu neuem Leben.

By sacrificing bourgeois sense created
As German nation in deep trouble to its presence,
Be a site of joyful competition by our youth,
That will be strengthened a new and free generation,
Which is urging forward to new vitality.

Three years later (1926), opened the Georg-Arnold-Bad, named after agent and politician Georg Arnold, with 250,000 Reichsmark.

Third Reich 1933 - 1945

Since the Nazis took the power over Germany, a competition of Nazi architecture builders like Wilhelm Kreis (architect of the Hygiene Museum Dresden, Monument to the Battle of the Nations) and Paul Wolf broke out.[13] Both wanted to create a new world imperial "Saxon Gauforum" of Dresden. Completed buildings are only the Deutsche Bahn management and the Hygiene Museum beside of the area. The main part should be with 40,000 seats equipped Saxon Hall, in addition the Adolf Hitler Square in front, then the stadium was also created for troops parades of the Saxon Reichswehr until WWI. The main things of the forum should been the management houses of the NSDAP, the German Hygiene Museum, Hall and the Bell Tower. It would outclass the baroque part of Dresden, if ever finished, but this was underlined as mad. Also the sense was to give propaganda for make war for citizens of Dresden, located exactly whose stand the "RHS", today. Models in instances were the Gauforum in Weimar,[14]Frankfurt Oder, Augsburg, Hannover[15] and Bochum[16] and in future it should stand in every Reichsgau of the Third Reich. The style corresponded to bauhaus - neoclassicism with monumental dimensions in order. The first three positions of 277 worked designs won Western Germans, but they lose the architecture competition because of none membership of the Ministry of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda. Prof. Wilhelm Kreis was following advised personal of Adolf Hitler. The canceled winners were:

Centre of planned new state weekend-circus for highwaymen, should be a parade square in measures of 75,000m², in favor of 120,000 peoples stage-managing.

The Gauhaus (210 x 190 m) as well as Sachsenhalle (140 x 220 m) should both on the whole surround 80,000 seats, of militarised fellowship celebration to enslavemented poor peoples. In normal, contemporary ideas of those German guide: "... in der klaren, geraden und wuchtigen Architektur, die der Ausdruck unserer Zeit und unseres Lebensgefühls ist.".[17] (transl.: ... in clearly straight line and shattering architecture, which is the expression of our time and our livestyle.)

The suggestion of the area made Prof. Paul Wolf (Building mayor of Dresden). The area has stabile ground and was been undeveloped. City mayor Ernst Zörner and Paul Wolf proposed for the institute for eugenics and German Society for Racial Hygiene. Before the roadworks close down, began the beginning of the Invasion of Poland and thereby joined arms production. Occasion in other contemplation is the fulfillment of the dictators promise to create jobs and decrease number of unemployeds. After the law of new conception of German towns ("Gesetz zur Neugestaltung deutscher Städte"). Martin Hammitzsch overtook the new department for implementations in construction relations named "Durchführungsstelle". Hitler's Brother-in-law, secretary of the Interior of Reichsgau Saxony with master of Construction Worker School Dresden, 1940. He build the

tobaco mosque Yenidze of Dresden, in 1907-09. Born in 1878 - suicide: 1945, the project Gauforum was failed.[18] In 1939, however the groundbreaking completed for the hall and will blast by the soldiers of the Soviet 1st Guards Tank Army with 13th Guards Rifle Division. On August 23 1940, Jews, homosexuals, mixed couples may not went in the stadium and also not even in the surroundings of the parks with adjacent streets. So that people were persecuted and even in everyday life while extremely impaired. That's not been mentioned so publicly, so the Nazis could then confirm unhuman and perverse false stereotypes. 2008, benches were set up as a warning ("Hinsehen!"/ Look!).

From 1933 to 1945 the stadium was in use of Nazi organisations mainly National Socialist League of the Reich for Physical Exercise, Hitler Youth, League of German Maidens, military organisations like Wehrmacht, SA and SS,[19] which is taboo and also not reclaimed until today.[13] On Dresden Bombing, the meeting hall and traverses with the pool at the oval was dropped full of bombs by Royal Air Force and US Air Force. On renovation, the workers found an explosive bomb directly located under bench and players entry. A bomb diffuser worked successful one an hour ago. Before the bombing, two battalions of the People's assault Dresden meet here for her swearing, on November 5, 1944 at 9 o'clock in the morning, with men aged 16 until 60 years. Otto Dix, an artist from the Dresden Academy of Fine Arts served from time to time in there, but he went into west and would been captured of the Armée de terre, notwithstanding that his work was degenerate art for Nazis and he received a labor ban. The poem by Ilgen and sobriquet Kampfbahn (fighting drome) obtained for new bloody, bad definitions of war.[20] So the tourists often asking where lies the monumental Hygiene Museum Dresden and the stadium.

SV Dynamo takeover

SV Dynamo.jpg
Dynamo Stadion Dresden 1978 Cover.jpg

In 1953, the Sportvereinigung Dynamo took over the stadium and on September 23, 1953, the stadium was re-named in strange way for Wehrmacht sports soldier Rudolf Harbig. Benches has been replaced by individual seats and the pitch was re-sodded, the first time 1956.

Loved white mouse movie was hold for final credits scenes in overfilled oval, all fans were been very loud, after the speaker requested to the crowd, 1964.[21] On October 1, 1966 the rest of the ice hall was used for repair the new stand. 1967, however, as took place for an international match versus the Rangers F.C., soccer teams must gone to another stadium, by the reason of lacking capacity. The new floodlights, nicknamed "Giraffes", were first used during a match involving the GDR's national football team. They were built by PGH Electro-Construction Dresden. The four floodlight pylons, had a height of about 60 meters, an incline of 20 degrees, and a weight of 60 tons per example. Each mast has six stages, which are equipped with 26 x 6.7 lux floodlights. At the end following in the last day's emphasize in 2008, if cars driven into the Elbe valley of the City, it was a lightning symbol beside the Queen donated golden Cross of the Church of Our Lady. The visibility in the heights around the city in radiant shine.

Since September 15, 1971, a new steel stand would built on the west side, inasmuch as the European Cup started moving mass into. After it should cut back, but fans resist again. With a speaker tower included over 6 TV commentator cabins. In addition came three TV podiums, which must mount with in a close steel stepladder. The speaker tower was been also the lost-and-found office in match day's. If anybody lost possessions, the speaker informed the completely stadium with implied tens of thousands spectators mocking attentiveness.

The electric scoreboard was first used on July 6, 1979 during a match between Dynamo Dresden versus 1. FC Magdeburg. It is made up of over 4,333 lamps, and is driven by a computer, searched in a 15 years period in imperfection. 1971, it was done the name "Dynamo-Stadion-Dresden". In case of constructions the capacity won measures of 36.000 seats, 1976. Four years later, 38,500 seats done install for cup matches. In the summer of 1971, it was renamed Dynamo-Stadion for the SG Dynamo which used the stadium as its home ground for martial arts State Security and People's Police games, or small publicity festivals, with SV Dynamo and Free German Youth.[22] The other club which need these oval, was the SG Dynamo Zentral Dresden. Fences stood only between the block and grass, within a quantity such as in a garden. The new parking area was an ice skating course before. The capacity of the stadium was twice expanded: to 36,000 in 1976 and then to 38,500 in 1980. It should be noted that often the capacity has been beautified. Years ago, here hold championships of Dynamo Dresden, nothing more, or else other married couples at the inner soccer circle.[23]

Reunification time since 1990

Now, first big riots passed also for future. After the "political transition" in 1989, transferred the "Committee for the Office for National Security," (one year successor of Ministerium für Staatssicherheit) the stadium to the club, which therefore could retain all revenues to 100%, but had to bear all maintenance costs. Then the SV Dynamo passes history on November 23'rd, 1989, but the central in Sportforum Berlin Hohenschönhausen was still the same. The 1st Bundesliga FC Dynamo Dresden has invested more than 2,000,000 DEM to the stadium and modernized it to a DFB and FIFA-suitable venue. In 1990, the stadium was upgraded to meet DFB and FIFA standards and the national building code. This included improved security measures to help protect players and referees, after heavy riots. The old benches on the lines changed into different (white green) plastic seat shells and a new turf has been laid for 750,000 DEM.

1995, only minor and unavoidable renovations, as less in value from year to year! New tenant has been voted the Dresdner Sportclub in harmony with other amateur FC's.

Since January 1 1992, the stadium has been stood under the control of the City of Dresden in order to protect the site, should Dynamo Dresden ever face financial problems. Benches have been replaced by individual seats and the pitch was re-sodded, the first time since that happened 1956, that the playing surface has been renewed with the €375,000 cost being borne by the city of Dresden. That same year, the facility was again named for Rudolf Harbig.

The first and only concert staged at the venue, was a Wolfgang Petry show, on July 17, 1999, with about 5,000 people in attendance.[24]

"Rudolf's fortress of fences"

In 2004, due to requirements of the German Soccer League (DFL) as part of the licensing procedure to the 2nd Bundesliga, following action by the city of Dresden and in part by sponsors of the 1st FC Dynamo Dresden conducted, the value was approximately 700.000 Euro:

  • Renovation and expansion of the sanitary areas in the office of the Clubs with Dresden Monarchs, and the creation of a doping control, rehabilitation area and upgrading of sanitary facilities in the changing area in the basement of the sports value building,
  • Rehabilitation of the public area: repairs to the concrete surfaces and restoration of the standing areas in the so-called "Badkurve" and block K and J,
  • installation of additional separation fences and escape doors,
  • replacement and repair of faulty drive and seat boards, painting works, renovation of wood flooring on the steel platform,
  • Upgrade to 100 news media seats including communications device,
  • Establishing a central location for the closed-circuit television,
  • Installation of surveillance technology in the side Lennéstraße, now the stadium looks alike a jail of fences.

January 2005, the conversion of tartan of an artificial turf training place in the autumn of 2004, which is indeed not only used by the footballers.

New construction 2006 - 2009

In 2006, the capacity was been minimized for approximately 23,940 seats (60 roofed and 10,670 open). Due to building work in progress at the past, capacity was been limited to just under 10,000. The usual capacity is often lowered where there are security concerns. On May 9 2007, German sports magazine kicker reported that an agreement has been reached with the City to finance the complete renovation of the stadium into a modern 32,085-seats, 2009.

The demolition of floodlights and scoreboard should discussed in a buckshee sense. On December 3, 2007, the demolition began. Dresden hasn't got 2-billion € for moving these 4 into the new right for the new Dynamo-Stadium. Despite the complete rebuilding, this scoreboard remains behind the new stadiums K-Block, looking rather for only at the back of the new stand. After intense negotiations between the city of Dresden and HBM, which began on January 30, 2006. The most significant change of the Stadium project is now available, compared to baseline in 2005, lies in the shift of the stadium building volume by about 25m towards south. The original distance to the adjacent land backwards north of the Georg Arnold Bath was only a few yards and fell below the required distance for so much space. In addition, the stadium building (height about 32m) would have caused a shading of the sun area. workers created 400 spaces, which in the daily operation of the classified in the north parking lot with about 300 parking spaces.

Building site to right south-west view of Großer Garten and training ground at night, January 2009

The marketing of the stadium wanted to make neo-Nazis to VIP guests. Scandal! In a signed letter by managing director and formerly coach, addressed to the Deutsche Stimme[25] in Riesa, offers VIP tickets for the upcoming season at the new stadium. "In exclusive ambiance you enjoy the unique atmosphere of the stadium and in the same time you will establish new business contracts." But the "DS" is leading by the National Democratic Party of Germany officials. This publisher is known for the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution once biggest right-wing mail order in Europe. Afterward it has published the NPD itself and therefore the marketing of the stadium apologized: The publisher was not known with these context. The offer has been canceled for the future.[26]

The construction site for the "replacement building Rudolf Harbig Stadium" was established on November 12, 2007, the official start of construction took place at November 19, 2007. Hence during 22 months period later, on September 15, 2009? Although not yet completed to the last detail, was the 46,000,000 Euro expensive Rudolf Harbig Stadium with a sold out friendly match against Bundesliga Schalke 04[27] officially reopened after construction. Schalke won the duel with 1:2 (0:1). The first "official" goal in the new venue sling Kevin Kuranyi as recently as later Maik Wagefeld (with extra given bonus penalty).

"Mit der Neugestaltung des Rudolf Harbig Stadions gelangt Dresden wieder auf die Weltkarte des Fußballs zurück." transl.: "With the inauguration of the stadium, Dresden returns to the world home of football." Who said Dresden Mayor Helma Orosz (CDU) in her opening speech. (This speech was booed by the crowd due to the mayor's alleged opposition to the stadium's redevelopment.)[28] The program received high jumper and Beijing 2008 starter Raul Spank (former member of Dynamo) subsequently his 2009 World Championships in Athletics – Men's high jump bronze medal by Ulrike Harbig (the daughter of the sports soldier and world record

holder Rudolf Harbig) whose name the bowl carries.

184 lamps with altogether 2000 lux shines the new home of football in the city colors black and yellow. Pop star Roland Kaiser sang before the final fireworks displayed trough starry sky, the enthusiastic visitors. Sportfive with the desire of fulfillment has come, that this organization only stadium and arena may never be known. The overall completion of the stadium, this concerns mainly the interior of the main building and grounds, due in December 2009.

Some building work is expected to continue until the end of the year, but this match opened the new stadium to full area. Today taking place games of the third and fifth German soccer league.(NOFV-Oberliga Süd and following 3rd Liga). Since the publish of the western stand "Dresden", occurs the leisure time Radeberger Cup,[29] in every year ago, if it should being a riot game (for example Lok Leipzig), the capacity must decrease into 10,000 seats. That is the new known riot capacity.[30] Should it come to riots in Germany, therefore, with more than 10,000, it would probably intended into by marching the army. Only after the World Cup, the stadium may be renamed. Most likely in Radeberger-Stadion-Dresden. Named after the former own brewery of Frederick Augustus III of Saxony.

Also, the stadium has a modern alarm system. It is also working with the city's siren system. Once triggered, it takes at least 15 minutes until it is turned on again. It first heard the siren and following later the announcement: "Achtung, Achtung! Dies ist ein Alarm! Bitte verlassen Sie das Gebäude!" (transl.: "Attention! Attention! This is an alert! Please leave the building!")[31]

The marketing has a tangle of about ca. 70 different prices for a stadium.[32]

Ghosts and curses

One legend has told, after the Battle of Dresden in 1813, with 349,000 soldiers and 48,000 deads in among them Russia, France, Austria, Royal Saxon Army and Prussia. At the these terrain stood several barracks that were used as field hospitals. Many people died before they could tell their friends or relatives, where they embeded her wealths. Therefore, their souls find no rest from now on, up through the dark nights. In many times to both singles and families a pale, encountered only in a tattered uniform and a field cap, clad Saxon Garde du Corps/ Chevauleger ghost, who accompanied the person without any word on a bit and disappeared.

Privy, pharmacist Hermann Ilgen (1856-1940), inventor of rat poison, a multimillionaire and former Dresden's greatest patron. Ilgen fact that the stadium will have once a curse, picked out the Dresden historian Dirk Krauss: "Because the city had once given him a promise..., until today!" A trained pharmacist Ilgen, by rat poison he has become very rich, 1923 founded for the city of 500,000 Reichsmark Ilgen Kampfbahn, today Harbig-Stadium. But he wanted at least a street or a square named after him. Krauss: "Dresden mayor Bernhard Blüher had himself firmly promised. But 10 years ago, nothing happened. When the Nazis came to power and who was a freemason Ilgen anyway suspicious. Full of anger - and without the road and square - he died in 1940 (typically for Dresden!). Also later in the GDR, he was the disliked capitalist and freemason." The CDU city councilor has already claimed at least rename a little square or some Loschwitzer street in Ilgen street and thus prevent the curse: "Our application was thrown out by the city administration, however." Meanwhile, even the Church warns the town hall. The old Catholic priest Hubertus M. Schweizer (62): "The spiritual can materialize. I am sure that the curse just unfolded, so the new stadium is bewitched and it could happen bad disasters.[39]
