Fröttmaning U-Bahn Station, Munich, Germany


Date Built
The Fröttmaning U-Bahn Station serves the nearby Allianz Arena, home to Bayern Munich, and a large Park and Ride facility for commuters traveling into the city centre.  The opening of the Allianz Stadium prompted a complete refurbishing of the station.  The station's platforms are covered by a roof made up of a translucent membrane composed of teflon-coated glass-fibre fabric.  This canopy is supported by a series of tubular steel tree-like columns. 

The western wall is decorated with an elaborate design by Peter Kogler that is said to suggest the complicated pattern of railway tracks in the nearby yard or the winding paths that cross the Esplanada between the station and the Allianz.

A pedestrian bridge links the station with the Esplanade for fans on the way to or from the Allianz.

At the other end of the station is a second pedestrian bridge connecting to the Park and Ride parking lot.
