Obviously, the FC Bayern Munich, the German powerhouse must be on this list too. The beautiful capital of Bavaria is a tourist hotspot and always worth a visit. With Munich’s second team 1860 on the rise again, there might be grand, old derby on the cards soon. Just around 45min away from Munich you have the rising stars of FC Augsburg. Then there’s the VFB Stuttgart, highly recommend when their version of the Oktoberfest is taking place right next to the stadium. But you can also visit the much-loved FC Nuremberg and their small but feisty rivals Greuter Fuerth in the second tier.
The 70’s giants FC Koeln and Borussia Moenchengladbach will also amaze you on your Bundesliga Break with their fantastic atmosphere.

Tucked in between is Bayer Leverkusen and Fortuna Duesseldorf is just around the corner, now in Bundesliga 2, yet worth a visit. With so many clubs nearby Duesseldorf is also a great if you want to see more than one match on your football weekend Bundesliga trip.
Not to mention, Eintracht Frankfurt with their crazy fans turning the Waldstadion into a nuthouse week in week out. Like it cosy, then get in touch for a tailor-made trip to the Black Forest capital Freiburg. Their fans are known for being extremely welcoming to visitors from abroad. Just be careful when offered their local cocktail. An unrecognisable mixture of the local brew, some raspberry juice topped up with brandy! For the walk shy, we recommend a tour to Werder Bremen. With their ground being in right next to the pub laden old town, you won’t have to walk far to get back to your hotel. To make it memorable visit the Beck’s brewery before the match and then board a river cruiser right to the stadium. Cheers!
