Five of those games will be broadcast live globally on television (click here to find your local Bundesliga broadcaster), leaving you with a choice between relegation dogfights and European pursuits, so allow bundesliga.com to lift the anticipation further with a quick preview of what that quintet of games has in store...
It is the proverbial relegation six-pointer when VfB Stuttgart and Hamburger SV meet this week. VfB have won three of their last four at home, while HSV are in 14th after taking four points from their last two games. Will there still be room in the Bundesliga for two of German football's heavyweights come the end of the season?
This one has been billed as the dress rehearsal for the DFB Cup final at the end of the month. Wolfsburg and Borussia Dortmund first play for three points in the Bundesliga at the Volkswagen Arena, with more than just pride at stake, before turning their attentions to lifting some silverware in Berlin on 30 May.
SV Werder Bremen have not featured on the European stage for four years, but they are keen to return to that stage next season, and a win over Borussia Mönchengladbach, themselves chasing automatic qualification to the UEFA Champions League, could hold the key.
Bayer 04 Leverkusen still have a sniff at finishing third, while Hoffenheim will retain an outside chance of a Europa League spot with a win at the BayArena. Saturday's clash will sharpen the senses of two teams renowned and revered for playing some of the most attractive attacking football in the Bundesliga.
The last bus you want to see rolling up at your home stadium when you're stuck in a relegation battle is that of FC Bayern München, but that is the challenge SC Freiburg face this Saturday. Christian Streich's men can expect no favours from the champions, who will be fully focused after their European dream came to an end in midweek.
Check out Dortmund's recent resurgence, which has got them in the frame for a place in Europe next season, courtesy of this video from the Bundesliga's official YouTube channel.
