Mercedes Benz Stadium is amazing, and it’s time to show it off. What better way to learn about the stadium and everything it offers than to take a Mercedes Benz Stadium Tour!
We were lucky enough to take a preview tour – and wow! I highly recommend this as an affordable way to take in the VIP experience and behind-the-scenes excitement. Experience the signature features of this amazing Georgia stadium, and learn more about what happens behind the scenes at the soccer and football games.
Here are a few fun facts we learned on our Mercedes Benz Stadium Tour…plus some of our favorite stops along the way.
MERCEDES BENZ STADIUM TOUR
When you arrive at Mercedes Benz Stadium for your tour, the first thing you’ll see is the Dirty Bird sculpture just outside the entrance to the stadium. It’s one of the signature features of Mercedes Benz Stadium. This gorgeous piece of art was crafted in Hungary and brought to the stadium’s Front Porch to welcome visitors.
Once you’ve stopped to take pics with the Dirty Bird, it’s time for your tour. During your tour, you’ll experience the signature features of Mercedes-Benz Stadium, including stops at locker rooms, the field, Window to the City, Skybridges, and Clubs.
Guided public tours are priced at $27 for adults and $22 for kids 12 and under, seniors and military. Tours are offered on a limited basis during non-event days, and last about 90 minutes. They recommend you purchase tickets in advance, and arrive 30 minutes before your tour starts.
In addition to the Stadium tours, you’ll also find new tour experiences at Mercedes Benz Stadium including the Engineering and Architecture Tour, the Technology Tour, the Sustainability Tour, and the Art Tour.
FEWER SEATS, MORE SPACE
The “Window to the City” and the Skybridge stops on the tour offer sweeping interior and exterior views, as well as natural sunlight. We love the Skybridge. A floor-to-ceiling window to the city, and a social gathering place on the stadium’s northeast corner that allows fans the opportunity to connect with the downtown landscape and skyline.
We loved learning about the 8-petal oculus roof, the gigantic halo board, the platinum-level environmental award bestowed on the building….and more. I don’t want to spoil it for you though!

A SPORTS MUSEUM OF ART
Dirty Bird isn’t the only art on the property — the stadium partnered with the Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD) to curate a 200-piece art collection of energetic artwork. One of the Mercedes Benz Stadium tours is the Art Tour, and you can take it to learn more about the artwork found here.
Some of our favorites includes an collage of clocks that calculate the time, and 7-foot mural paying homage to early African American players in the league.
MERCEDES BENZ STADIUM TOUR IN THE LOCKER ROOM
Created with coach and player feedback, the Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta United locker rooms are expansive, state-of-the-art spaces that were custom designed for the teams…and you get to visit them during your Mercedes Benz Stadium Tour. (Note: Tour routes and locations are subject to change.)
See where the teams store their equipment, and stand where the popular players stand while getting ready for the big game!
You’ll visit the VIP Lounge and The AMG Lounge (the VIP of all VIP sections). My favorite part of this experience was taking a look at the field from the Fan Club Patio. (Imagine having drinks on the field during a game! Wow!)
You will also be able to step onto the 50-yard line of the playing field and experience the stadium from the player’s perspective.
100 YARD CLUB
At 100 yards long, this Falcons-themed bar and entertainment space located on the upper concourse is the first of its kind in the NFL. The 100 Yard Club features yard markers on the floor, custom hash mark lighting along the ceiling, and Red Zone bars on either end, aligning perfectly with the playing field.
We loved the large Falcon hanging from the ceiling on the 50-yard line, which matches the one on the field.
Here, as well as throughout the stadium, you’ll find the beloved Fan First Pricing…prices at restaurants here are set to match their counterparts outside the stadium. This includes $2 hot dogs, $5 domestic beer and $2 sodas with free refill stations located throughout the stadium.
Again – this is just a sample of the myriad things you’ll learn about on the Mercedes Benz Stadium Tour…and by the end, you’ll love our city and stadium even more.
Molly B’s is the place to be if you’re looking for good southern food. Named for Arthur Blank’s mother, this establishment is only available to VIPs during game time.
During the week though, you too can enjoy delicious salads, burgers, sandwiches…and that amazing fried chicken…all while taking in a view of the magnificent stadium. It is open to the public for lunch seven days a week on non-event and game days from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
