The most beautiful venues of the European Football Championship 2020

For the 60th anniversary of the European Football Championship, the responsible UEFA has come up with something special. This year’s competition will not only take place in one or two host countries, but in twelve different stadiums on the old continent.

Among the venues there are also some beautiful destinations for a city trip. This is an excellent way to combine football fun with sightseeing. We have taken a look at the venues – you can find a picture gallery of the stadiums to click through in Kicker – under the tourist background and recommend a visit to the following locations.

Munich

With France and Portugal, the German national team was not exactly lucky in the draw. The home advantage in Munich’s Allianz Arena should benefit Jogi Löw’s team. Away from the stadium, there are many nice hours to spend in Munich. Enjoy the summer sun in the English Garden or visit the Olympic Parks as a sports-interested tourist.

If you are travelling with small children, an extensive visit to the zoo at Hellabrunn Zoo in Munich is a good idea. You can find a wide range of accommodations on Expedia Hotels.

Rome

In addition to the opening match (Turkey – Italy), two other group matches and a quarter-final will take place in the Italian capital. Hardly any other city in Europe has as many sights to offer as Rome. In any case, you should not miss St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City, which is one of the most beautiful buildings in the world. In the Pantheon, history can truly be felt. This feeling is further enhanced when visiting the Colosseum. In this metropolis, there is a risk that you will miss the kick-off because of all the highlights.

If you want to get a taste of the British football atmosphere, you can choose between the venues London, Dublin and Glasgow. The table draw increases the probability of getting one of the coveted tickets in the Scottish port city of Glasgow . In addition to cultural sights, Glasgow is particularly known for its distinctive music scene. Scotland’s largest city was the first city in Great Britain to be designated a city of music by UNESCO. You can learn more about Glasgow’s past in the imposing Riverside Museum. From trains to vintage cars and interactive rooms, there is a lot on offer here.

Copenhagen

The Danish capital is known as a fun-loving city. A special advantage of Copenhagen is that all sights are within easy walking distance. The town hall square is the true centre of the city. Amalienborg Palace is the residence of Queen Margrethe II of Denmark. When the flag is waving in the wind, you know that the majesty is at home. With almost 38,000 spaces, Telia Parken is the smallest of the twelve stadiums.
