Allianz Arena, Munich

Allianz Arena, Munich

Football meets architecture

300,000 LEDs shine under the largest membrane shell in the world. The Allianz Arena in Munich is Germany’s first and Europe’s largest stadium with all-round, continuous LED external lighting for dynamic light moods. 16 million colours can be represented on the stadium façade.

The Arena exhibits the clear signature of the Herzog & de Meuron architects from Basel, who put great emphasis in their designs on the façade of the building. Munich is no exception: With their unique idea to cover the stadium with air cushions and to transform it into a light and design object, the Allianz Arena has long been a symbol of the city.

The Allianz Arena was equipped with the classic LS 990 switch design in pure white. With its quality and clear shape, the LS 990 switch range has proved its worth for almost 50 years.
