OLYMPIC PARK AND

Olympic Stadium

OLYMPIC PARK MUNICH

The Olympic Park (nicknamed Olypark by young people) has been one of Munich’s most prominent sites since its inception on the occasion of the 1972 Olympic Games. Unlike related sports venues, it is well maintained and well visited – not only Munich locals come here for a concert.

With a pavilion roof created by Frei Otto with the overall design by Behnisch and partners, the Olympic Park is a classic example of visionary architecture and offers a whole potpourri of entertainment options. In addition to the obvious sports offering ranging from swimming to skating, there is minigolf and even boats for hire. Visitors can enjoy the view from the Olympic Tower, which is almost 300 metres high – and those who prefer a slower pace can simply go for a stroll. With 850,000 square metres of green, everyone is sure to find a favourite spot.

OLYMPIC STADIUM AND

Olympic Hall

The Olympic Stadium with its 75,000 square metres and fascinating tent-style roof created by Frei Otto is simply spectacular – even 50 years after its construction. It’s possible to see the design from a whole new perspective with a roof climb tour. The Olympic Stadium can accommodate 72,000 spectators – which is why it is likely Munich’s hottest concert venue, where Coldplay, Robbie Williams and Helene Fischer have already appeared. Next to the Stadium is the Olympic Hall, which is used for sports and other events. In addition to this, in 2011 the Small Olympic Hall was constructed – cleverly underground.

Olympic Tower

Dazzling is the perfect adjective to describe the panoramic view from the Olympic Tower. From the platform at a height of 291 metres one has a view of all of Munich and can also take in the panorama from a revolving restaurant.

Bob im Park

Behind the Bob are the makers of Café Kubitschek, who open the Bob from the middle of April to the end of September as a summer location in the park. There are canopy swings, an open BBQ anyone can use to grill food they’ve brought along for a charge per plate and excellent cakes for dessert. The main opening hours are from sometime around noon until about midnight; the opening hours may vary depending on the weather.

It’s off to the island

La Dolce Vita in the centre of Munich: There are colourful flags waving in the breeze in the middle of the Olympic Lake, where one orders a spritzer and the waiter says "subito”. Visiting Capri is like a short holiday in Italy, getaways possible daily from noon to midnight.
