Fan club visits to the Allianz Arena

What makes the Allianz Arena the world’s finest stadium? Take an Arena Tour for a behind-the-scenes insight into this extraordinary sporting temple. 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. At least one tour every day is conducted in English. The range of special tours, available to book in advance, includes the exclusive VIP tour, a kids’ tour, and a disabled tour for wheelchair users, mobility-impaired persons and seniors.

Since May 2012 there has been another compelling reason for our fans and fan clubs to flock to the Allianz Arena: The FC Bayern Museum, Germany’s biggest club museum, tells the absorbing story of the club in an interactive installation covering more than 3,000 m².

The exhibition, which is forever being updated as new information comes to light, features much more than countless fascinating exhibits, including trophies, and boots and shirts worn by Bayern greats past and present. The 120–year history of one of Europe's most famous and successful clubs is retold using an intoxicating blend of facts and infotainment, modern and emotionally moving, but at the same time entirely authentic.
