Bayern Munich v Spurs - travel advice
Mon 09 December 2019, 14:38|Tottenham Hotspur
Supporters travelling to Germany for our Champions League group stage match against Bayern Munich on Wednesday 11 December are advised to take note of the following important information.
Kick-off is 9pm local time (8pm UK).
No areas of Munich have been identified as ones which should be avoided by supporters. We recommend fans familiarise themselves with the government’s travel advice for Germany and details for the British Consulate-General Munich.
The Club’s Travel Line - 07917 880445 - will be available throughout the day and evening of the match for any supporters experiencing any problems.
Fans are recommended to base themselves in the central area of Marienplatz, which has an abundance of bars, cafes and restaurants and has a direct connection to the Allianz Arena via the local Metro system. Fans are asked not to congregate in large numbers at any of the busy Christmas markets in central Munich as this may lead to overcrowding.
While ID will not be required to enter the stadium, supporters should be in possession of their passports at all times in case it is required for inspection by local police.
The official currency of Germany is the Euro.
Getting to the stadium
Supporters are recommended to take the Metro (U-Bahn) U6 from Marienplatz toward Fröttmaning or Garching Forschungszentrum and alight at the step-free Fröttmaning station. The approximate journey time is 16 minutes and the station is a 10-15 minute walk from the stadium. Transport is not included in the price of the match ticket. More information on transport can be found at www.mvv-muenchen.de/en/homepage/index.html
Taxis to the stadium would normally take around 25 minutes from the airport and 30 minutes from Marienplatz, but extra time should be allowed because of matchday traffic.
There are no bars or restaurants near the Allianz Arena and supporters are asked to be in the stadium no later than 8.30pm.

We are justly proud of our superb and loyal support at home and away. We all have a responsibility to act as ambassadors of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club and act as considerate visitors to those who live and work in the cities and countries we visit. Please respect local customs and traditions by not placing flags or banners on local statues or monuments.
We recognise that most supporters want to watch a football match and not to listen to abusive or indecent language from the stands. Discriminatory behaviour which includes shouting, chanting or actions such as racist, sectarian, homophobic, sexist or anti-disability behaviour is unacceptable.
