So we kept in touch with them during the fall and they told us that someday we could go to visit us. We suppose to go there during the Oktoberfest but it was a busy period for us because of the university exams. So at last we decided to go to Germany during the winter break.
We left the 29th at 6 a.m. with Zano's car (a fiat punto) and after a break close to Trento we arrived in Munich at midday.
The stadium was one of the venues for the 2006 FIFA World Cup. However, due to sponsorship contracts, the arena was called FIFA World Cup Stadium Munich during the World Cup. The two professional Munich football clubs FC Bayern Munchen and TSV 1860 Munchen have played their home games at Allianz Arena since the start of the 2005/06 season. The arena facade is constructed of 2,874 oil air panels that are kept inflated with dry air to a differential pressure. The panels appear white from far away but when examined closely, there are little dots on the panels. When you view the panel from far away, your eye combines the little dots and sees white.
Visit the Stadium with a guide is about 10 euros but if you are a soccer lovers it is worth it.
