Arena was designed by architects Herzog & Meuron, and it is an architectural landmark in the north of the city, which
also attracts many visitors on match-free days thanks to the guided tours on offer and the FC Bayern Erlebniswelt..

magnificent gardens and spacious rooms, it quickly became the refuge of the Bavarian kings, many of whom were born or
died here. The large Baroque palace of Nymphenburg, in the northwest outskirts of the city, was originally the summer
residence of the Wittelsbach Electors in the 17th century. Extending more than 600 meters from wing to wing, this vast

reuniting again in a fountain-adorned pool in front of the main façade..
