As the tournament takes place in the immediate vicinity of Munich there is a lot to see and do, here are some highlights…
Olympiapark The area to the north of the city where soldiers once paraded and the world’s first Zeppelin landed in 1909 found a new role in the 1960s as the Olympiapark. Built for the 1972 Olympic Summer Games, it has quite a small-scale feel and some may be amazed that the games could once have been held at such a petite venue.
The complex draws people year-round with concerts, festivals and sporting events, and its swimming hall and ice-skating rink are open to the public. Olympiapark has two famous eye-catchers: the 290m Olympiaturm and the warped Olympiastadion. Germans have a soft spot for the latter because it was on this hallowed turf in 1974 that the national soccer team – led by Franz Beckenbauer – won the FIFA World Cup. When the sky is clear, you’ll quite literally have Munich at your feet against the breathtaking backdrop of the Alps from the top of the Olympiaturm.
Allianz Arena FC Bayern Munich’s home stadium is worth a visit for sporting and architecture fans alike. It’s located in the northern suburb of Fröttmaning. Nicknamed the life belt and the rubber boat, the stadium has walls made of inflatable cushions that can be individually lit to match the colours of the host team (red for FC Bayern, blue for TSV 1860, and white for the national side).
The 75-minute stadium tours are hugely popular (no tours on match days). On the tour you will go behind the scenes with a trained Arena guide visiting the middle tier, the main stand lower tier, the press conference area, the dressing rooms, the players’ tunnel, the mixed Zone/media area and the promenade/stadium exterior. Experience the atmosphere of the Allianz Arena from the point of view of a professional footballer in the players’ areas and discover the exciting details of this unique structure. This and many other highlights await.
