Bayern are still looking for a first win of term, but the champions showed grit and resolve to battle back for a point in Dortmund after Mark van Bommel's early sending off.
The vast 80,552 capacity crowd at Signal Iduna Park saw Kuba Blaszczykowski hammer the home side into a ninth-minute lead, and worse was to come for the champions when Mark van Bommel received his marching orders for a second bookable offence midway through the first half. But Bayern never stopped trying in an incident-packed encounter, and Tim Borowski crowned an inspirational display after coming on as a half-time sub by poking home through a forest of legs to level things up with quarter of an hour remaining.
The result means Munich are without a win after two league matches for the first time in nearly a decade, but the Bavarians will be confident of rectifying the situation when Hertha Berlin visit the Allianz Arena next Sunday.
Bayern boss Jürgen Klinsmann made three changes to the side held 2-2 by Hamburg in the season opener. Fit-again Hamit Altintop replaced Toni Kroos, Luca Toni made a first start of term in place of Lukas Podolski, and Andreas Ottl stepped in at the last minute after Ze Roberto broke down in the warm-up.
With Martin Demichelis also not yet fit enough for the matchday squad, that meant the champions named only six subs, including 22-year-old reserve defender Georg Niedermeier.
For his first home game in charge, BVB coach Jürgen Klopp fielded a side featuring midweek signing Mohamed Zidan and young Mats Hummels, now in his second season on loan from FCB.
