The original Munich Travel Guide

It began in 1996 when I realised that there was very little information available on the Internet, which was becoming more widely used to search for information. As an Englishman living in Munich, there was much to see and do. Kodak kindly presented me with a DC120 digital camera free of charge, so that images could be
made available on the Travel Guide
 
Over the years a number of
important changes have been
made to ensure it was compatible
with the changing standards. This
site now shows well on iPhones,
iPad, Smartphones, and Tablets.

The Allianz Arena

The Allianz Arena is the third biggest stadium in Germany behind Signal Iduna Park in Dortmund and the Olympiastadion in Berlin. TSV 1860 München previously had a 50% share in the stadium but FC Bayern Munich bought their shares out for 11 million euros in April, 2006. This still allows TSV 1860 München to play at the stadium but they own no rights to it.

The stadium has been nicknamed "Schlauchboot" (inflatable boat). The museum of Bayern Munich, FC Bayern Erlebniswelt, is located inside the Allianz Arena. The stadium is located at the northern edge of Munich's borough of Schwabing-Freimann on the Fröttmaning Heath. It is the first stadium in the world that has a full changing color outside.
