FC Bayern München and TSV 1860 München started the 2005/2006 soccer season in their magnificent new home. Swiss architects Herzog and de Meuron created one of the most modern stadiums in the world with 66,000 seats, 106 executive boxes, 11,000 parking spaces and catering facilities covering more than 6,500 m² (about 69,965 ft.²). The shell of the stadium is without a doubt the highlight of the unusual architecture. This unique ’stadium cover‘ was created using approximately 2,800 translucent, diamond shaped air-filled pillows.
The LEGOLAND® Model
LEGOLAND® model designers invested 4,209 man-hours and used over one million LEGO® bricks to produce a building with the imposing dimensions of 5 m x 4.50 m and 1 m in height. It weighs 1.5 tons. The original drawings from Swiss architects Herzog and de Meuron were used to create an exact scale replica of the spectacular Munich soccer stadium. Visitors also had a hand in the construction of the LEGOLAND Allianz Arena. Among the 30,000 mini LEGO fans sitting in the lower left and right curves you will find 100 mini fans in imaginative designs created by LEGOLAND Deutschland visitors.
