A perfect blend of light and color: FC Bayern Erlebniswelt

The Allianz Arena is a place of pilgrimage for soccer fans and has now been made even more attractive with the FC Bayern Erlebniswelt . Since May 2012 visitors can get the “FC Bayern experience” at the largest club museum in Germany with an exhibition area of 3050 square meters.

Unlike in classic museums, the focus here is not on cups, shirts and boots but on the many stories associated with the club. Exhibits, pictures, historic documents and innovative media technology provide a fascinating mix. Fans are taken on a journey through time from the day FC Bayern was founded in February 1900 to the present day.

Emotions are conveyed through light, colors and video clips. The unmistakable effects are based on the innovative lighting demanded by the contractors, such as LED components, OLED luminaires and intelligent light management systems. The time capsules, for example, are beautifully lit by spotlights fitted with PrevaLED Core Z2 units.

Tilt-and-swivel mini spotlights with OSLON LEDs make the cups sparkle and shine. The cups are mounted on glass pedestals that are backlit by white and red LINEARlight Flex Protect LED strips. BackLED chains reproduce the Bayern logo on the ceiling of the Hall of Fame, and famous players are highlighted by LEDvance downlights. The “as above so below” OLED chandelier – perfect blend of ORBEOS elements and OSLON LEDs – is a real eye-catcher in the café. The museum offers fans a wonderful opportunity to identify with their heroes. The emotive character of the FC Bayern Erlebniswelt comes from the clever spatial concept and the excellent lighting.
