Grand opening for FC Bayern Erlebniswelt

It was as if they’d all emerged from their pictures and come to life. Ottmar Hitzfeld, Udo Lattek, Dettmar Cramer. Paul Breitner, Sepp Maier, Peter Kupferschmidt, Bulle Roth, Jean-Marie Pfaff, Bixente Lizarazu and a host of other Bayern legends were there, on walls and in videos – and in flesh and blood. So it was that Wednesday’s grand opening of the FC Bayern Erlebniswelt really was, as the word literally translates, a world of experience.

“We’re proud to declare the Erlebniswelt officially open,“ Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told a star-studded audience, featuring VIP guests from sport, business and politics, including former Bavarian First Minister Dr. Edmund Stoiber. “Our aim was somehow to combine historical fact with feelings and emotions – and we’ve succeeded,“ the club chairman said.
