Wembley Stadium, 25 May 2013, 22:54: captain Philipp Lahm raises the Champions League trophy into the London sky – and FC Bayern lay the groundwork for the first treble in the club’s history, 113 years after its formation. Bayern fans across the whole world still carry those images in their hearts. Now, in the special exhibition “Wembley 10 Years on – a Treble for the Ages”, they’re brought back to life. This moving journey back in time at the FC Bayern Museum should not be missed.
From now until 7 April 2024, visitors from all around the world are offered a unique opporunity to go back 10 years in their mind. The journey to becoming Europe’s best club team is brought to life using carefully selected exhibits, multimedia elements and moving pictures, featuring milestones, special matches but also of course those who are closely associated with the success. The beer-drenched suit worn by Jupp Heynckes is among the exhibits, as are a piece of the Wembley net as well as various honorary gifts from the main opponents.
Film, photo cubes – and five trophies
At the heart of it is an exclusive film featuring those involved at the time, untold anecdotes and personal recollections. The showpieces are obviously the five trophies that Bayern had collected by the end of the quintuple year 2013. They can all be marvelled at up close – and create just as good a picture as the photo cubes, in which guests can even become part of the most defining images from that time. Want to stand on the town hall balcony, next to 'champion maker' Bastian Schweinsteiger in Frankfurt or even alongside Arjen Robben on the Wembley turf? At the FC Bayern Museum that's no problem!
'Mr Wembley' Arjen Robben first to visit
Experience the treble like never before – "Mr Wembley" himself has already done so. As the first guest before the official opening, Robben took a look around the exhibition in which he naturally features prominently. He gazed proudly at everything that he and that outstanding team achieved 10 years ago and even found some details that he didn't previously know. And when he placed the famous old trophy in the display case, you saw his eyes light up. He smiled and said: "It's always nice to have it in your hands."
From now, everyone else can enjoy the walk through the exhibition just as Robben did. The scorer of the winning goal at Wembley recommends it: "People shouldn't miss this exhibition!"
