Allianz Arena

Munich /  Germany

Unsurpassed building technology: the Allianz Arena is a dream for players and spectators alike. The most modern football stadium in Central Europe

Project
The Allianz Arena is a dream for players and spectators alike. The most modern football stadium of Central Europe has a capacity of 66,000 seats, of which 10,000 can be changed into standing room. A total of 2,200 fans who want more luxury can enjoy the more comfortable business seats. The elitists can enjoy the 106 luxury rooms. Each room houses enough luxurious space for 32 football fans. The suites can be occupied outside the regular football season 365 days a year, including the very best service and 2,100 VIP parking slots on the ground and first levels of the stadium.

The playing field is augmented with day-care centers for children, fun centers, fan shops, spacious eating facilities, conference rooms and exhibition halls distributed across a floor space of more than 6,000 square meters. The four-story parking garage with slots for roughly 9,300 cars is currently the largest parking facility in Europe. The esplanade leads to the south end of the stadium and serves as a route to lead visitors to the facility. The stadium itself is covered with one of the largest membrane shells in the world, with a total surface area of 64,000 square meters. Lightning storms, hail or wind are not a problem. The roof and the facade consist of 2,874 cushions that are inflated with air. The material used for the roof was specially developed for this application, is water-resistant and non-inflammable. Shades are mounted under the roof that are closed during the games. Whenever required, the smooth outer shell can be illuminated in white or the colors of both of the two large football clubs of Munich: red for the Bayern and blue for the Sechziger. A total of 25,000 individual lights were installed for the facade lighting. These add a great deal to the outer appearance of the stadium, which is almost as impressive during the day.
