Munich

Football

more than a year ago
Berlin may be the capital of Germany, Frankfurt its financial centre, but when it comes to football, there is really only one town that matters: Munich, and its all-conquering Bayern team, which usually wins the German championship by some distance.

Though, at times, Borussia Dortmund, Borussia Moenchengladbach and even Bayern’s cross-city rivals, Munich 1860 have tried to dislodge Bayern from the perch at the top of German football, Bayern’s immense wealth has meant that since rising from relative obscurity in the 1960s, it has rarely gone too long without putting its rivals in its place.
