Around 200 Bayern members and fans enjoyed an unforgettable experience on Tuesday as they caught a special train from Munich to Nördlingen to mark the second anniversary of the death of Gerd Müller. The train journey connected the legendary goalscorers birthplace and the city where he made his name.

The special train was made up of historic carriages and was initially hauled by an electric locomotive before a steam locomotive took over the train from Augsburg. A unique programme awaited the participants in Nördlingen. In addition to exploring the town, they could visit the house where Müller was born and the house where he lived. There was also a visit to either the Bavarian Railway Museum or a guided tour of the historic old town with a visit to the statue of Gerd at the Weinmarkt before the return journey to Munich in the evening.

Bayern’s newest striker Harry Kane has been given a special welcome:
