There are a number of stadium tour options at Allianz Arena, which also manages to house the largest museum for a club in the country.

One option is to do a combined arena and museum tour which gives guests access to the entire Allianz Arena, from the press room to the changing rooms, in addition to the impressive club museum where Bundesliga titles and Champions League trophies are housed.

Alternatively, you can elect to just have a walk around the museum without a guide or just have a stadium tour with a guide. The museum is open throughout the week while tours need to be booked in advance.

Another option is to do a VIP tour. These tours are conducted by a VIP guest and give fans access to the dugout and tunnel at the Allianz Arena in addition to a look around the VIP boxes. VIP Tours are offered on public holidays and weekends and need to be booked well in advance as they are hugely popular.

Finally, fans who are attending EURO 2024 in Germany can book on to special tours at the Allianz Arena throughout the tournament.

More information on all tours and booking information can be found on the official Bayern Munich website.

Allianz Arena is around 10 km away from the city centre. Despite being quite far away, it is very accessible through a car, as the ground is very close to the A99 and A9 stretches of the autobahn. Even then, it is advisable to input the satnav address – Werner-Heisenberg-Allee 25, München – before starting the journey. If you are using the A9, the exit would be at exit 73 München-Fröttmaning-Süd. If you are taking the A99, then you can reach the Allianz Arena by taking the exit 12b München-Fröttmaning-Nord.

The advantage of being situated away from the city centre is seen in the comfortable parking spaces. The car park for the Allianz Arena is one of the largest and it covers an incredible 9800 spaces. You should remember that parking spaces are not free and that you have to shell out €10 while exiting the park. This payment can be made through the ArenaCard, which is available in the stalls at the stadium.

By train or metro

The Allianz Arena can be reached by train or metro. Munich is well connected to top European cities through train, and it is not a surprise that the Munich station is one of the largest in Europe. One can take the Line 6 to get off at Fröttmaning. If you are in the old city centre, the Line 6 will take you to the Marienplatz and it is a 15 minute ride. If trams are preferred over the metro, it is possible to take a tram to Marienplatz from Ostbahnhof and Hauptbahnhof, which happen to be the largest train stations in Munich.

Due to the city being well connected with trains to several parts of Europe, it is possible to make a weekend trip through trains and then make use of the metro and trams to reach the stadium. Since Germany is also very well connected to the parts of the world with flight services, this can also be an option for fans who want to visit the Allianz Arena and watch Bayern in action.

Allianz Arena is one of the modern stadiums even if it has been around for more than a decade. You can expect top-class facilities when you visit this ground. It is one of the best destinations to watch football due to its expansive nature. The ground may lack in the personality of an old stadium, but it has all the modern conveniences.

There are numerous options for getting food and drinks, while the clean concourses make for a pleasurable experience. Even though the ground is quite far away from the city centre, it remains well connected through a number of ways.

Away fans at the Allianz Arena are put in the third tier of the North stand. This section is very far away from the pitch, but it also results in some excellent views. The steep seating arrangement also helps in spotting the tactical battle on the pitch. If you are visiting the Allianz Arena for a Champions League night, the allocation of tickets would be just over 3000.

You should be prepared for a sparse environment near the stadium, as it is far from the city centre. The lack of entertainment options aside from the football is a stark contrast to many of the older stadiums.

For those who want to stay near the stadium, the options are limited. But there is always the option of staying in the city and taking the excellent public transport to the ground. There are numerous hotels in the city centre.

Unlike in major football stadiums across, German grounds do not have restrictions on the consumption of alcohol. It is commonly regarded that German soil is one of the best places to get some beer and watch football in large numbers. Even then, that does not stop away fans from seeking some of the best pubs for excellent pre-match experience. It is difficult to find many pubs close to the ground, but there are several choices in the city centre. The top ones would be:

  • Augustiner-Keller – Arnulfstraße 52, 80335 München, Germany
  • Killian’s Irish Pub – Frauenplatz 11, 80333 München, Germany
  • Ned Kelly’s Australian Bar – Frauenplatz 11, 80331 München, Germany

The Allianz Arena is one of the modern stadiums in world football. It has been the home of Bayern Munich only since 2005. Yet, this is one of the largest stadiums in Europe with a capacity of 75,024 for domestic games. Even though the capacity drops down to 70,000 for the European and international matches, it is still one of the iconic grounds with a modern touch. This modern status of the stadium is reflected in the ‘continuous ring style’ design, which has been chosen over the ‘English style’ that is more traditional. Even then, you will find separate sections on the ground that is well defined.

The four sections of the Allianz Arena are North Stand, East stand, South stand, and West stand. The North stand is one of the largest with a three tier design. It also holds most of the executive boxes in the stadium. In many ways, this stand would be considered as a continuous bowl of tiers that sandwiches all the hospitality boxes. Due to the larger size of this stand, the tickets are very affordable. The East stand is the largest in terms of seating capacity. The curvaceous appearance of the stand manages to hide the bulk.

The curvature of the stand also makes it possible for extra seats along the pitch side. The South stand is also known as the Südkurve and it is very popular amongst fans who tend to be very vocal. There is no separate ultras group, but different supporters group like Inferno Bavaria, Schickeria München, and Red Fanatic München feature in this stand. The West stand is regarded as the main stand since it manages to hold all the changing room, players’ tunnels, executive seats, and the dugout.
