Hard to pick a favourite. Probably Wembley, when it still had terracing at both ends it was an amazing sight, and looked about twice as big (it was a dump once it was all-seater).
Possibly because I like terracing, I'd go for Borussia Dortmund
I've been to the following:
Victoria Park (Ross County)
Caledonian (Inverness CT)
The (Old) Den (Millwall)
Parc des Princes (PSG)
I really want to see the San Siro and Bernabeau.
Been to 93 of the current 114 Premiership, Football League and Conference grounds, plus about 60 other English lower league, Italian and US grounds, and about 15 now ex-grounds. Still harbour hopes of doing "the 114" - 116 from next season - but living in the US makes that a little tough to accomplish, particularly with all the new grounds!
My Top Three
The Rose Bowl:
and Estadio Jalisco:
I posted this elsewhere, but it's worth putting here: I really, really want to see a match in England at the football grounds of Shepshed Dynamo, from the Unibond First Division (IIRC). Why?
Just so I get a chance to follow these directions:
that is so ********ed up..

AJAX has a small stadium tour with a visit to the trophy room in the museum
I've seen it listed elsewhere as "Butt Hole Lane," not that that helps any.
Um, watch games actually. What else is one supposed to do?
Well, maybe I deserved that; will be more clear.
... in times when there are no games, when you happen to be visiting the city in the offseason....
Well, for me that's simple... I don't count as having visited a ground unless I've seen a game there.
Ah.. well then you have seen alot of matches for an American if I do say so.
edit: unless of course you lived in England at one point or another.
Yeh, I cheated a lot Otoh, I've probably been to about 50 new European grounds since I moved to the US.
all the grounds I listed were for matches.
If I'm in a city somewhere, and the ground isn't too much of a trek, then I'll usually wander over and have a look, even if no game is on. Although it almost never happens in the UK, a lot of european grounds are left open to the public during the day, and you can just wander in.
The only actual tour I've been on was at Ajax, but both Barcelona & Real Madrid have museums. Barcelona's is apparently the most visited musuem in the city.
I've probably been to around 40 or so grounds on non-match days over the years. If I'm in a city I just regard a stadium as an additional tourist attraction.
