Last summer, the Allianz Arena (home of the FC Bayern Munich and the TSV 1860 Munich) received a technological update and 300,000 new LED lights have been built in, tz.de reports in its printed version today, July 7, 2016. Since then, the facade of the stadium can be lit in any colour of the rainbow. It is set to shine in rainbow colours to mark Christopher Street Day in the night from Saturday, July 9 from 9pm until 1am on Sunday.
The stadium is now regularly lit to mark big events and dates. Most recently, on July 4 it was lit in red, white and blue to mark the US Independence Day and the photos went viral on social media. The 26,000 square meter stadium facade also shone green to mark St. Patrick’s Day.
The Allianz Arena itself is one of the newest sights in the Bavarian capital and you can visit it during your stay in Munich. To find out how and when it’s possible to visit the stadium in Munich’s Schwabing-Freimann district, see our Bayern Munich Erlebniswelt post.
