The heart of football in northern Munich: at the Allianz Arena, you can marvel at top-class matches and enjoy the FC Bayern Museum.
Built to the plans drafted by renowned architects Herzog & de Meuron, the Allianz Arena has become one of Munich’s main landmarks since it opened back in 2005.
The stadium holds up to 75,000 people, all of whom enjoy an outstanding view of the action thanks to the steep grandstands. Its impressive design featuring almost 3,000 air pockets makes a visual impact before you’ve even arrived. The pockets light up in red and white at FC Bayern München home games and in white at Germany matches. On special occasions, such as St. Patrick's Day, they shine green.
Guided tours are available as you would expect: arena tours provide guests with an insight into the stadium’s inner workings, from the team changing rooms and player’s tunnel, through to the main grandstand.
The FC Bayern Museum is also well worth a visit: Germany’s largest museum dedicated to a sports club takes visitors on an emotional journey, starting with the club’s foundation in 1900 and ending with its latest triumphs.
The City of Munich is also affected by the nationwide measures to contain the coronavirus. Hotels and accommodation establishments, indoor and outdoor gastronomy and shops are open. But there are some restrictions. All other important information about the coronavirus and your stay in Munich can be found here.
