How does it feel to stand on the turf at the Allianz Arena? What’s it like training with four-time ‘World’s Best Goalkeeper’ Manuel Neuer? How did this special club come into being? Step into the virtual world of the record German champions and marvel at the Allianz Arena from a player’s perspective, or travel back in time and experience FC Bayern from its founding up to the treble-winning season, the most successful year in the club’s history.
But that’s not all: at regular intervals over the coming months, every historic milestone will be made available to you along with many other areas on planet FC Bayern. Let Giovane Elber give you a tour of the FC Bayern Erlebniswelt or Thomas Müller take you into the dressing room.
The FC Bayern VR Experience is free for all FC Bayern fans. Simply accept the Terms and Conditions and download here. The technical requirements for you to be able to enjoy the Experience can be found further down.
You can explore the following areas in the FC Bayern Experience:
The Mixed Zone serves as the main menu of the FC Bayern VR Experience. From here you can go into a training session on the Allianz Arena pitch or enter the Erlebniswelt. You’ll be greeted by FC Bayern stars such as Thomas Müller and our mascot Berni. Further areas are in development and will be continuously added to the Mixed Zone, so keep an eye out for them.
Imagine you’re standing on the pitch of one of the largest football stadiums in Germany, the Allianz Arena. It’s been faithfully reproduced with the background noise of a home match added in to give you a true flavour of the matchday atmosphere. Anyone who’s ever been to the Allianz Arena will be amazed at how it feels to experience this virtually.
Take the chance to have a personal training session with Manuel Neuer, one of the best goalkeepers in the world. He’ll start you off with a heading drill. As the difficulty level increases you’ll realise there’s lots to learn and master. Steer the ball into different parts of the goal to get maximum points. Aim past obstacles or head the ball through rings to score bonus points.
The virtual Erlebniswelt contains the most important milestones in our club’s history. The first and most important of those is the founding of the club in February 1900.
Discover the ‘Café Gisela’, where the founding members signed the charter. Since the café no longer exists, it’s been reproduced using photographs in order to bring this important place in the history of FC Bayern back to life.
The first German championship: Take a look around the record champions' home ground of the time and relive a truly milestone moment in the club's history.
Avatar creation and audio processing
The FC Bayern players and our mascot Berni were scanned with the 3D Instagraph Pro before being animated by means of state-of-the-art motion capture technology at the OnPoint Studios.
Sound engineers have recorded the environment at the Allianz Arena during matches to simulate authentic ambient noise so our fans get a realistic stadium experience.
