In 2022 there is something to celebrate in Deutsche Bank Park! Not because Eintracht had won an important game or a superstar was on stage in the arena. No, here the 15th birthday of a real institution for all Frankfurt sports fans is celebrated. The Eintracht Museum has been located directly under the main stand since 2007. On around 400 square meters of exhibition space, museum director Matthias Thomas has created far more than just an overview of the history of the traditional club. He has created a very special place for all fans, which of course tells of the very great triumphs, but also reveals small, unknown anecdotes. In the showcases of the permanent exhibition there are countless memorabilia to discover, from newspaper clippings, old tickets to photos to fan merchandise and, of course, lots of trophies.
In addition, there are informative text panels, inserts of film clips of great games, radio reports and original sounds of contemporary witnesses. So you can go as a visitor on a rousing time travel through the sports history not only of Eintracht, but the city of Frankfurt in general. Of course, you can do this on your own during a regular visit to the museum, or as part of a guided tour. And there are two offers particularly recommendable:
On the one hand it is called again and again on Friday evenings (if there are no home games) "Nights in the museum": These atmospheric evening tours begin at 9 pm and lead not only through the museum, but also through the night stadium. For those who prefer to experience the whole thing in daylight, the "90 Minutes of Eintracht" tours are highly recommended. Here, the tour first takes 45 minutes through the museum, where interesting, surprising and sometimes amusing facts and stories are told in addition to the numerous exhibits. After a short half-time break, the tour continues for another 45 minutes behind the scenes of the Commerzbank Arena. In the process, visitors get to see such places that otherwise remain closed to one.
In addition, there is still a "Historical tour of the stadium grounds". Group tours, match day tours or special offers for school classes can also be booked. Children can also explore the Eintracht Frankfurt Museum as part of a museum rally. You see, there are many different ways to explore this museum!
So if you want to learn more about the history of your favorite club, if you want to see some really great exhibits and all that very close to the turf on which Eintracht has played so many games, you should definitely pay a visit to the Eintracht Museum.
