Photographer's Note

The Allianz Arena is the new home of Munich's soccer clubs Bayern München and 1860 München. Designed by the Swiss architects Herzog and de Meuron together with Alpine Bau, the soccer stadium was built from 2002 until 2005. It gives place to 66,000 fans. To acquire funding for the station, a public decision (Bürgerentscheid) was needed where 66% voted in favor of the station. Amazing: the smooth facade consists of 2,874 rhombuses; depending on the team playing, they can glow in red, blue, or white color. Let's look forward to the FIFA World Championship 2006, whose opening game will be in this spot.

Another photo of the stadium can be found here.
