Passports and visas

You don’t need a visa to travel to Germany, but your passport should be valid for your whole journey.

Remember your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) but also take out travel insurance, even if you’re only going for 1 night – it could save you a lot of money if you get into difficulties.

You must carry ID with you at all times.

If you lose your passport, you will need to get an Emergency Travel Document.

Getting to the stadium

Fans should not to congregate in large numbers at any of the busy Christmas markets in central Munich as this may lead to overcrowding.

From Marienplatz, which has an abundance of bars, cafes and restaurants there is a direct connection to the Allianz Arena via the local Metro system.

The nearest station is U-Bahn station Fröttmaning on the U6 line. The Munich Transport system will be putting on extra trains for supporters attending the game. Remember to buy and validate all tickets before you board a train.

Only take yellow coloured taxis with an official taxi sticker and number. Taxi costs will be high on departing the stadium area due to the large amount of traffic.

At the match

Access to the stadium can be slow. There will be ticket checks and body searches at the entrance to the turnstiles; to avoid a last minute bottleneck get to the stadium early.

In addition to items which would usually be prohibited in the UK, please note the following restrictions at the stadium:

  • no bottles and cans are allowed to be brought into the ground
  • flags and banners with metal poles are not allowed


As in any other city beware of pickpockets and bag snatchers at airports, railway stations, around the town centre and when using public transport. Only carry what you need and leave spare cash and valuables in hotel safety deposits.

For an evening kick off, the average temperature in December will be approximately 0 to 5°C.

Keep your passport in a secure place on you to ensure it does not fall out and is lost.

The official currency of Germany is the Euro. You should only change money at legitimate currency exchanges, such as banks, hotels, or in exchange kiosks. It is an offence to be in possession of counterfeit money.
