EuroLeague cities: Munich, Germany
The historic city of Munich enjoys a dramatic location at the foot of the Alps and has always offered an air of confident charm to its visitors. In recent years, a new addition to the city's cultural scene has arrived in the form of FC Bayern Munich's relaunched basketball section, with high aspirations of eventually matching the huge success of the same club's football team – which has claimed 28 domestic titles and five European crowns. The basketball branch was formed in 1946 and won back-to-back German titles a decade later, before entering into a few fallow years. In 2008, though, the club was rejuvenated with serious intent, and climbed back into the German top flight three years later. A first domestic title of the century followed in 2014, and now the sky is the limit in a city where the basketball tradition is growing fast year by year. With an exciting historic capital city surrounded by plenty of natural beauty, Bavaria and basketball are proving themselves to be an attractive pairing!
