The Swiss architects Herzog and de Meuron designed the Allianz Arena with its unique diamond-shaped illuminated outer facade, chancing between red, blue and white. More than 25,000 long-life fluorescent tubes enable the impressive illumination of the Allianz Arena.
The Allianz Arena logos are mounted on the north and south side of the arena. In a length of 39.83 meters and an absolute height of 5.18 meters, the twelve in blue and white lighted Allianz Arena letters are Europe’s biggest illuminated promotional lettering. The fascinating appearance turns the Allianz Arena into Europe’s state of the art stadium.
Up to 71,000 spectators can be seated on three terraces lying upon each other. These rampant terraces ensure a direct proximity to the action and combine raw emotional interaction with all the comforts of a modern stadium.
Since its official opening on May 31, 2005, the Allianz Arena has become the best-known soccer stadium in Germany. Since then, more than 200 games have taken place and over 1,5 million guests took a guided tour through the stadium.
