A penalty by Bayern's Dutch winger Arjen Robben was later saved by Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech, leaving the final to be decided in a shootout.
As well as the Champions League trophy - the first time it has ever been won by Chelsea or any London club - the players, management and staff of Chelsea will show off the FA Cup during the parade.
