Tampa Bay to Feature in NFL Germany Game: Why Munich Is a Great Location To Travel for Bucs Fans
If you are a huge NFL fan but based outside the US and therefore haven’t had the opportunity to watch the cream of American Football live and in person, you may just be in luck.
Next season the NFL roadshow will come to Munich, Germany, offering European-based fans the chance to see the action from the stands with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (minus Tom Brady) set to play the first regular-season game to have ever taken place in the country.
The most popular NFL teams in the world enjoy a great following whether they visit, and Munich is a great city to visit and an ideal location to plan a holiday of a lifetime, which would, of course, include the game itself.
What to Do In Munich?
In terms of European cities that have a great character and aren’t as readily mentioned as the likes of London, Paris, and Rome, Munich is something of a lesser-known gem. It’s Bavaria’s capital and a place that offers travelers a great deal, especially if you like a good beer and a thriving nightlife.
Munich’s beer gardens are world-renowned, and while Oktoberfest is clearly the peak of the year when drinking beer to excess is pretty much compulsory, it’s also a great reason to come to the city all-year-round and not just in October.
You can enjoy some great traditional food, which is very meat-based, while enjoying your brew and Munich is also something of an architectural hotspot, and there are over 80 museums to pick from if you are keen on soaking up some culture.
Another bonus, and one you may not have been aware of, is that Munich is a very green city and has many great outdoor spaces, and its large, clean, and relaxing public parks might be a great place to chill ahead of the big NFL game.
You can also look to use Munich as a starting spot for a large Bavarian tour. There is an abundance of castles to savor, and they are only a short distance away. There are beautiful lakes to sit beside and take a ride out on, and all of this is within easy reach thanks to the very effective and speedy S-Bahn.
Whatever time of the year you visit, and that will depend exactly when the NFL game takes place, you can guarantee there’ll be a festival of some kind going on in Munich; it’s that kind of place. Partying is very much part of the scene, and you’ll be surprised at how reasonably priced it all is; when compared to the US, the prices in Germany, across the board, are surprisingly low.
Basically, as a city break that offers you the chance to watch the Buccaneers in action, it doesn’t get much better, and it’s a game that promises a great deal and one the team’s owner Joel Glazer is thrilled about;
“We look forward to participating in the first regular-season NFL game in Munich, Germany later this fall as part of the International Series,”
“This historic game will play a crucial role in the NFL’s efforts to grow its international footprint while allowing us to directly engage NFL fans in Germany.”
