What makes the Allianz Arena one of the world’s finest football arenas? Find out for yourself!

Munich’s Allianz Arena is not only home to one of the greatest and most successful football clubs of the world, but also one of the better known sights of the Bavarian capital. Within a decade (the stadium was completed in 2005) it has become one of the trademarks of the city, and one of the first sight you see coming towards Munich on the Autobahn from the south. Locals love it, but also often refer to Munich’s new trademark as the “rubber dinghy”.

Its facade is lit in red when the FC Bayern has a home match and blue if the Lions of the TSV 1860 are playing there. 2,760 diamond-shaped lit cushions form the world’s biggest membrane cladding covering an area of 66,500 m². The stadiums capacity is over 70,000 seats. Most of the time FC Bayern matches are sold out, but you can also book a guided tour.
