2015 has been an eventful year at the FC Bayern Erlebniswelt. Thousands of visitors, many stars, numerous exhibitions, family days: there was a lot of action at the club museum. 2016 will be no different. Here’s a short overview:
Mario Götze's visit was the crowning conclusion to the year. More than 1,000 fans seized the opportunity to have a picture taken with their idol. Autographs on shirts, scarves and footballs made the visitors happy. You can meet stars up close at the FC Bayern Erlebniswelt in 2016 too. Javi Martínez, Holger Badstuber, Arjen Robben, Mario Götze – who will be next?
At Easter, in the Advent season or just in between: family days at the Erlebniswelt are very popular. Permanent Erlebniswelt guest Berni entertains the smallrt fans while the others explore the club's history. The club museum will continue this tradition in 2016. You can find the exact dates on the Erlebniswelt website.
The first special exhibition of the year will not be staged at the Erlebniswelt, but is no less interesting: Revered, Reviled, Rejected (“Verehrt, verfolgt, vergessen”) was developed in cooperation with the Protestant Church of Reconciliation at Dachau concentration camp memorial site (“Evangelische Versöhnungskirche KZ Gedenkstätte Dachau”). The exhibition dealing with the 56 FC Bayern members who were victims of the Nazi regime will be inaugurated on 27 January. It is part of the annual campaigns for the Holocaust memorial day and tells the stories of club members persecuted by the Nazis until their execution at the concentration camp or escape from Germany and life thereafter.
Legends, schools, specials
You can see stars at the FC Bayern Erlebniswelt every week, and you can now meet stars up close in an extraordinary tour. Hasan Salihamidžić and Georg “Katsche“ Schwarzenbeck are the guides for “Meet the Legend,” introduced in 2015. The exclusive tour for a special occasion takes about one and a half hours. Both groups and individual visitors are eligible. The upcoming dates for a remarkable journey through time are published on our German website (tours are German-language only).
The carefully designed school class programme was a complete success in 2015. More than 300 kids participated in the programme, developed along with the Educational Museum Centre (“Museumpädagogisches Zentrum”). There will be project days and a number of dates for school classes in 2016 too.
A little Christmas present rounded off the year: the special exhibition “Kaiser. Kalle. Bomber.” has been extended to 20 March 2016 due to its ongoing success. Visitors to the Erlebniswelt can travel through time and the exciting lives of Franz Beckenbauer, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and Gerd Müller until spring – before another great exhibition will be inaugurated at the FC Bayern Erlebniswelt. Prepare to be surprised!
