Feel the passion for Football in Germany
Located in the heart of the old continent, Germany has an interesting history narrated by castles, cathedrals, mountains, food and beer. When someone mentions Germany, the first thing that comes to mind is The Berlin Wall, war and beer. However, it’s not just that, Germany is a powerful political and economical country, with beautiful traditions, a lot of respect for one another. What is even more interesting about this country is it’s love and passion for football.
Let’s travel first to a beautiful city located in southern Germany, Munich. It is the third largest city in Germany. Munich is a major tourist destination, has several of the largest breweries in Germany and is famous for its beer and its annual Oktoberfest celebration. What makes Munich a rich city is its outstanding museums and art galleries.
Fortunately, it doesn’t end here.
Germany is well known for its nationwide Football League, Bundesliga. It counts as one of the strongest football leagues in the world and has become an inseparable part of Germany’s society over the past 50 years. A total of 12 clubs have been crowned champions of Germany since the Bundesliga began in 1963. Bayern Munich lead the way with their record 28 titles. The Meisterschale is a German association football trophy which has been awarded to the German champions since 1949 and the Bundesliga champions since 1963. Borussia Dortmund, Werder Bremen, Hamburg, VfB Stuttgart, Cologne and Kaiserslautern have all lifted the Meisterschale multiple times.
Munich is one of Europe's most successful footballing cities. The passion fans have for local team FC Bayern München is impossible to miss as people hit the streets in red to represent their favourite team on game days. FC Bayern München is the most successful club in Germany and one of the most famous football teams in the world.
Attending a football game in Munich is not so hard, the city has an excellent public transport system. You may want to head to Munich's central square, Marienplatz, before or after the game to feel the shared passion for football amongst the locals and tourists.
With Fly Foot’s awesome guide in Munich, you will be able to walk around, eat and explore impressive sights like a local. With experience and time, Flyfoot has managed to give you an extraordinary experience when flying to watch your favorite team play in the famous Allianz Arena stadium. We asked two Fly Footers to share with us their experiences with Flyfoot and the passion they have for football.
Ibrahim Maalouf, travels with a group of friends to watch his favorite team, Bayern Munich, play. When asked about his experience with FlyFloot, Maalouf answered: “I watched more than 10 games with FlyFoot, always ended up with very good seats, very good hotels and their service was always very good!”
Maalouf has watched games in Camp Nou Stadium, Bernabeu, Allianz Arena, Signal Iduna Park, Juventus Stadium, Emirates Stadium, Parc Des Princes. Being a Bayern Munich fan, Ibrahim Maalouf would fly to watch any of their games, doesn’t matter when, where or against who. For him it’s about his love for the team and watching them play is always on his to-do list.
Chakib Abillama, another Bayern Munich fan, travels with friends and has watched games in different stadiums like Camp Nou, Bernabeu, Allianz Arena, Signal Iduna Park, Emirates Stadium, Parc Des Princes, Volkswagen Arena. We asked him to share his experience with FlyFoot, and without hesitation, we got a great response:
“Being a huge football fan, I got lucky meeting and getting to know about FlyFoot. I was finally able to watch games in some of the most iconic stadiums in the world.
I've sat in the away section with crazy bavarians in Bernabeu during a Champions League return leg knock out game.
I've seen the Borussia Dortmund yellow wall bouncing.
I've even been to a Wolfsburg game.
But to me, Football is Bayern Munich, and the home of football is the Allianz Arena. My first visit was in 2015 with a couple of friends. Let's call them ibrahim and rami. Ibrahim's wife got him a fly foot package, flight, match tickets and hotel for two people (i think she assumed they were gonna go together). Unfortunately, she had no idea that Ibrahim and I had promised each other long ago that we would go and watch a Bayern Game together someday. Rami tagged along for good fun and thus began a once a year tradition we've honored since. A lot has changed since 2015, some of us got married, some of us had kids, other hardcore bayern friends have tagged along as well. We've been through ups and downs professionally and personally, but we all rejoice and take comfort in the knowledge that once a year, our day is going to start with flowing beer at Hofbrauhaus and end in the standing section of the allianz arena. Mia san Mia!”
What a beautiful story indeed! We all wish your tradition will revive again someday Chakib and we will chant together to the songs that makes us feel alive and in the moment.
