The first German football game that I went to was in Ingolstadt, in the province of Bavaria, southeast Germany. So why did I go there in the first place? Well, for starters, there is the Audi Museum and old town…. but not much else. That’s where the football game comes into play where I got to see a Bundesliga game between FC Ingolstadt and Hamburg SV.
So what’s next after the game (or before the game)? Old town of Ingolstadt is a possibility but it’s not that special as it’s pretty common like other European cities and towns. It’s still worth going through but it’s better to head on over to the Audi Museum aka museum mobile. There are lot of cars and motorcycles in there as they change exhibits over time like all museums do.
Like I stated earlier before, it’s best to go to these cities by combining whatever they have to offer and watching a football game. It’s best to see which teams are out there and which level they play at. Germany has multiple levels but I prefer to watch the very best which is the Bundeliga 1 or just simply Bundesliga. There are also Bundesliga 2 and 3, but they are not that good unless they are on the upswing and get promoted. I’m not going into full detail about the promotion/relegation format, but I prefer to see the very best like FC Barcelona. But the problem is FC Barcelona don’t play in Germany that much unless it’s a friendly or Champions League game so you might be pressed for time if you’re only in Germany. So what’s a tourist to do in Germany then? I guess go watch the German clubs play.
