Consistently ranked among the world’s most prosperous cities, Munich is Germany’s third largest city and the capital of the southern state of Bavaria. Proud of its sense of ‘Gemütlichkeit’ (friendliness or good cheer) – as exemplified by the annual Oktoberfest – Munich offers traditional hospitality and hearty, distinctive cuisine. The city’s medieval old town is a particular highlight for visitors, with its stunning architecture, museums, galleries, and traditional markets.
Open since 2005, Football Munich Arena is one of the most famous stadiums in world football. Home to Germany’s most successful club, FC Bayern Munich, the 70,000-seater stadium has hosted major club and international matches including the FIFA World Cup in 2006 and 2012 UEFA Champions League Final. Constructed purely with football in mind, the arena’s enclosed design helps keep noise inside the bowl, generating an unforgettable atmosphere for fans and teams to enjoy.
