The Ultimate Bundesliga Guide: All about the Bundesliga
The Bundesliga was founded in 1962 and consists of 18 teams that play against each other twice, resulting in a total of 34 matchdays. During this time FC Bayern Munich is the most successful club in the country. A total of twelve clubs have won the German championship so far.
After the second world war and until 1989 (in football until 1991), Germany was divided into an Eastern part (German Democratic Republic) and the rest (Federal Republic Of Germany). This was a time before the Bundesliga in which the German championship had already been played over a long period of time in a tournament system with finals, as well as the East German championship of the GDR, which was organized by the East German counterpart to the DFB - the German Football Association (DFV). The following is therefore also a list of all German champions since 1903, including the East German champions at the time of the division of Germany until 1991, since it was not until the 1991/92 season that some East German teams were admitted to the Bundesliga.
The format of the Bundesliga
The Bundesliga has 18 clubs that play against each other twice during the season - one home game and one away game in each team. Each win is worth 3 points, each draw is worth 1 point and of course, there are no points for a defeat. The ranking is by points. If they are equal at the end of the season, goal difference and goals scored are taken into account. The league also has a promotion and relegation system. The lowest 3 teams are relegated to the Second Bundesliga and are replaced by the best 3 from there. The top 3 teams are sent to the draw in the champions group stage and the number 4 in the overall standings goes to the Europa League.

The all-time top scorers of the Bundesliga
Being on the list of Bundesliga top scorers of all time is like an entry in the history books. To get into the top 50, you have to be a gifted goal scorer and score over 100 goals, something few players manage to do in the course of their career. But to make it into the top 10, you have to be phenomenal. Here are - as of August 2021 - the ten best Bundesliga goal scorers of all time:
- Ger Müller (365 goals in 427 games)
- Robert Lewandowski (276 goals in 349 games)
- Klaus Fischer (268 goals in 535 games)
- Jupp Heynckes (220 goals in 369 games)
- Manfred Burgsmüller (213 goals in 447 games)
- Claudio Pizarro (197 goals in 487 games)
- Ulf Kirsten (182 goals in 350 games)
- Stefan Kuntz (179 goals in 449 games)
- Dieter Müller (177 goals in 303 games)
- Klaus Allofs (177 goals in 424 games)
The best Bundesliga coaches of all times
The Bundesliga has produced some of the best and most renowned international coaches, but also regularly attracts star coaches from other countries. When we talk about the greatest Bundesliga coach of all time, it’s impossible to forget the legendary Udo Lattek, who has won the Champions League with Bayern Munich, the UEFA Cup with Borussia Mönchengladbach and the European Cup Winners Cup with FC Barcelona, as well as numerous national titles with Bayern Munich. In addition, he saved Borussia Dortmund from relegation in 2000 as a "fireman", having ended his coaching career in 1993.
Alongside Udo Lattek, it was above all Hennes Weisweiler who, as a long-time coach of Borussia Mönchengladbach, helped shape the great phase of German football up to the mid-1970s.
Another great coach was "the General" Ottmar Hitzfeld, who won the Champions League with both Borussia Dortmund and FC Bayern and was able to lead his teams at least to the semi-finals of the Champions League almost every year.
And, of course, we have to mention Jupp Heynckes, who - after winning several championship titles with FC Bayern - first won the Champions League with Real Madrid in 1998 and, after a long absence from the League, did so again with FC Bayern in 2013. He also led them to the finals a year earlier, which, sadly, was lost very unluckily to Chelsea.
Otto Rehhagel is certainly remembered by many as the coach of Greece when the Greeks sensationally became European champions in 2004 and their coach was renamed "King Otto" in the media. Before that, however, he was already a great Bundesliga coach who did not collect as many titles as other coaches, but in return was all the more sensational both with Werder Bremen, which he first led to promotion and then, a few years later, twice to the German championship and with 1 FC Kaiserslautern, with whom he directly became German champion in 1998 as the then promoted team.
And then, of course, there is Jürgen Klopp - also known in Liverpool as "The normal one" in contrast to Jose Mourinho - who not only knows how to motivate his players perfectly with his incredible charisma and wit but also inspires the fans and media representatives. In Mainz and especially in Dortmund, he had already proven his great class before and taught all of Europe (and especially FC Bayern) how to fear, until Jupp Heynckes finally managed to disenchant this style of play. This, however, does not detract from the great performance Jürgen Klopp has consistently displayed. Even today he is still extremely successful with his playing style in Liverpool and probably the best coach in the world at the moment.
Among the star coaches from other countries that the Bundesliga has been able to attract are Pep Guardiola, Giovanni Trapattoni, Louis van Gaal, Carlo Ancelotti and the Austrian Ernst Happel, who won two of HSVs three championships with Hamburger SV in the 1980s and the Champions League in 1983, and who was on the verge of knocking FC Bayern from the throne of German football at the time.
Bundesliga teams and stadiums
The Bundesliga is made up of 18 teams, two or three of which change every season by promotion and relegation.
