The Basics

Divided into three sections, exhibitions at the German Football Museum are inspired by the game, and tickets offer full access. The First Half chronicles the numerous victories of the national teams—both men’s and women’s—with an impressive display of trophies, as well as some interesting commentary on football during different periods of Germany’s political history. The Second Half focuses on the various teams, fan culture, and football’s social significance, while the basement exhibition Extra Time lets fans loose on a football pitch.
