FAO German Football Fans (pref Munich Fans)

Tue Nov 20, 2007 10:49 am

hi!

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!

was just wondering if you can offer us any advice? is the Allianze arena easy to get to? how far is the airport from Munich City Centre? how much is public transport likely to cost?

will it be like a local derby match in England? is there likely to be any trouble between the fans?

and most importantly, where are the best places to drink in Munich Big grin

thanks in advance!

Matt

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.

is the Allianze arena easy to get to?

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.

how far is the airport from Munich City Centre?

Approx. 45 minutes by regional train (S-Bahn), the train numbers are "S1" and "S8".

Quoting B78710 (Thread starter):
how much is public transport likely to cost?

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).

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.

The Hofbrauhaus is a classic but there are countless other bars, clubs, and restaurants in downtown Munich, simply walk a bit around and look.

Hope this helps!

Have fun!

great post patrick!

thanks very much! answered all of my questions perfectly Big grin

i've almost definately made up my mind to do this now! should be a great trip!

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!

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.  Wink

I like it as well, it avoids traffic jams around the stadiums and there are less drunk drivers.
