Bayern Munich and Arsenal are slowly becoming a nice little couple as the years goes past. They seemed to be constantly meeting each other and 90% of the time Bayern are becoming the dominant part of the pair. Yet, for the first time in a while, this season Arsenal managed to top their group making them avoid the big guns and playing a ‘weaker’ team in the latter part of the competition. But the Champions league just doesn’t give Arsenal a break does it, because despite finishing top , they only ended up getting Bayern Munich in the first knock out stages. Regarded as one of the best teams in the world, Munich have knocked out Arsenal on 3 occasions , so it’s going to prove to be a hard test for Wenger’s men. That said, it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy yourself- as the first leg is going to be played in Munich there will be a number of ways to enjoy yourself whilst watching this infamous match-up. Before you do head to Munich, make sure prepare and book your airport parking in due course so you can avoid any delays and take advantage of those cheap airport parking prices.
Now that you have the parking sorted, let’s look at a few ways you can watch Munich/Arsenal game
Going to the game
If you’re lucky enough and have the money to do so, I highly suggest you go out and watch the game at Munich’s stadium. Away games are usually the most entertaining fixtures and the German Football fans are so passionate it will make for an intense but atmospheric affair.
Watching it a Fan orientated Bars
Usually, for any club, there will be fan orientated pubs/bars also known as the ‘team’s pub’. For example Arsenals associated pub is the Tollington Arms. On match days, the atmosphere here is crazy, it’s always packed out and 9 times out of 10 you’ll be surrounded by a platoon of arsenal fans. If you’ve never been, than this is something you’ll need to experience.
In the early spring, Bavaria’s ‘liquid food’ is served in these hip beer gardens; the breweries market their craft beers such as Salvator, Maximator or Triumphator. So no matter what you drink, whether you’re an ale drinker, light beer drinker or you prefer a wheat beer, these beer gardens will fulfil your needs. What better than to sit on a wooden bench beneath the chestnut trees, sipping a MaB of beer whilst eating pork sausages or grilled fish watching this intense and highly competitive football match? In addition to this, Henry the Lion transformed Marienplatz into the centre of Munich and remains the central hub of the city. This is where the New town hall stands and is where the major public transit lines meet, the locals and visitors alike are able to stroll past street entertainers and dine at exquisite restaurants or café patios lining the square. It’s the heart of the city and a pedestrian zone for all visitors and locals. The square begins at the western end of the square and leads off from the north offering a host of attractions to keep you entertained while you support the Reds in their Champions League first leg.
