1. Make sure your passport is valid for at least six months from the date of travel. Check if you need a visa for Munich.


2. EU residents enjoy free roaming in Germany. Fans from elsewhere should check charges with their service provider. Free Wi-Fi is common in public areas, cafés, restaurants and the stadium. In case of an emergency you can dial 112, the European emergency number, free of charge from any UEFA EURO 2020 host city.

3. Local time is currently UTC +1, i.e.:

  • UK, Ireland & Portugal: -1 hour
  • Amsterdam, Bilbao, Budapest: +/- 0 hours
  • Bucharest: +1 hour
  • Saint Petersburg: +2 hour
  • Baku: +3 hours

4. The local currency is Euro (€). ATMs are widely available, but in many places, cash is still king in Germany. Some restaurants and small shops may not accept credit cards, so it’s best to always have some cash with you for everyday usage.

5. Supermarkets and shops are closed on Sundays, so make sure you stock up on essentials on Friday or Saturday.
