Munich, Germany — In May 2012, FC Bayern München opened the largest museum of any soccer club in Germany in the Allianz Arena. On about 3,000 square meters, the FC Bayern Erlebniswelt presents the more than 110-year-long history of the soccer club from its foundation in 1900 until today in an exciting and entertaining way with many multimedia and interactive elements. Needless to say, many cups and trophies that the club has won over the years are on display as well. Additionally, there are many large and small exhibits that each tell their own story.
In the hall of fame visitors get “to meet” the club’s 16 most popular and famous players, among them world stars like Franz Beckenbauer, Gerd Müller, Lothar Matthäus and Oliver Kahn, and audience favorites like Mehmet Scholl and Giovane Elber.
In the play area you can test your skills with the ball, your goalie reflexes and your knowledge about FC Bayern. That’s fun for young and old. At the audio bar you can listen to all the songs about the FC Bayern, or songs sung by players ranging from classics such as “Gute Freunde kann niemand trennen” (Best friends can’t be separated) to “Stern des Südens” (Star of the South).
The last part of the museum features the current players of the team including life-size figures of the players and information about how much baggage is taken to every game. You can also try out the seats in the team bus.
Another portion of the museum is dedicated to the fans of FC Bayern. Visitors can take photos of themselves that are shown on large screens while simultaneously being sent home by e-mail as a souvenir. Additionally, there are photos of fan choreographies and various fan utensils on display.
The FC Bayern Erlebniswelt is also a great location for exclusive events such as conferences, company events or birthday parties. In addition to the 250-square meter-event room, all areas of the FC Bayern Erlebniswelt are available. For more information, call 089-2005-4086, or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
