There’s more to do at Allianz Arena than just attending a match. Admire the arena’s futuristic facade, made from thousands of diamond-shaped panels, then head inside for a behind-the-scenes tour. Peek into the dressing rooms, walk through the Players’ tunnel, and step out into the 75,000-seat arena. Afterward, continue to the FC Bayern Erlebniswelt Museum to learn more about Germany’s top team, visit the Hall of Fame, and pick up some official merchandise at the shops.
To avoid waiting in line at the entrance, prebook required admission tickets for the museum and guided tours. Combination tickets are also available, and children under 5 are free.

Things to Know Before You Go
Wear comfortable shoes suitable for walking and climbing the stadium steps.
A stadium restaurant and bistro are open daily; food kiosks are open on match days only.
The museum is accessible for strollers and wheelchairs, and disabled access tours are available by prior reservation. Strollers are not allowed on the stadium tours, but can be left in the luggage storage.
How to Get There
The Allianz Arena is located in the Schwabing-Freimann neighborhood, 7.5 miles (12 kilometers) north of downtown Munich. The closest S-Bahn station is Fröttmaning (Line U6), about a 15-minute walk to the stadium. Paid parking is available on-site.
When to Get There
Tours take place daily between 9am–4:30pm, although there is often only one English language tour each day, so book in advance if English is preferred. Avoid visiting on a match day, when the stadium will be crowded and tours are available for ticket holders only. If you can, pass by the stadium at night when the arena’s high-tech facade—crafted from illuminated air cushions—change color and create a striking visual in the night sky.
Munich’s Modern Architectural Wonders
Along with the historic buildings and gothic churches of Old Town, Munich harbors some impressive modern architecture. After checking out the Allianz Arena, stop by the BMW Welt, where the space-aged silver facade is as impressive as the cars inside. Nearby, the Olympic Tower is the city’s tallest building, while other unique buildings include the multi-colored Museum Brandhorst; the Herz-Jesu-Kirche church, with its unusual blue glass facade; and the imposing glass and stone Main Synagogue.
