Quoting B78710 (Thread starter): Myself and a couple of friends are planning on coming over to see the match between Bayern Munich and 1860 Munich at the end of january!
Good choice, the Allianz Arena is a nice stadium and Bayern Munich is playing pretty good football this season (except the last game vs. Stuttgart). You guys won't be disappointed.Click here for tickets.
Take the regional train (S-Bahn in German) from main station (Hauptbahnhof) to the station "Marienplatz" (runs every minute or so, the ride lasts only 3 minutes, the tain numbers are "S2", "S4", "S6", and "S8"), then take the underground (U-Bahn in German) towards "Garching-Hochbrueck" but get already off at the station "Froettmaning" (after a ride of approx. 15 minutes). From there you can already see the stadium, it is within walking distance.
It cost 8.80 EUR per person from the airport to main station (one-way). There are also cheaper group tickets available but I don't know the fare, simply ask at the train station's information counter.
Don't buy any train or bus tickets on the day of the game, you can ride busses, underground- and regional trains for free, simply show the conductor your stadium ticket (if there is any conductor at all).
Quoting B78710 (Thread starter): will it be like a local derby match in England? is there likely to be any trouble between the fans?
It is just a friendly match and Bayern fans are pretty calm in general, I expect no trouble at all, just the usual chants. By the way: It is no problem to walk around the stadium with a bottle or can of beer, nobody cares. But throw it away before you enter the stadium, no bottles or cans are allowed there.
Quoting B78710 (Reply 2): i've almost definately made up my mind to do this now! should be a great trip!
A friend and me want to fly down to Munich as well to watch the game, but it depends on how expensive the Christmas holiday gets. We will definitely be there when we have a few Euros for a flight and the tickets left.
Quoting B78710 (Reply 2): i love the idea of free transport if you have a match ticket! our government would never encourage fans to travel to a football match like that! they would see it as a huge lost revenue!
I like it as well, it avoids traffic jams around the stadiums and there are less drunk drivers.
