Olympic Park Munich – a sight in itself and a venue in Munich
For tourists a sight, for locals a place for recreation, relaxation and sport.
The Olympic Park Munich was created for the 1972 Olympic Games. Then as now, the Olympic Stadium, the Olympic Swimming Centre and the Olympic Hall complement the 850,000 m² grounds.
The unique roof construction on the building and the Olympic Tower are among Munich’s true landmarks.
At a height of 190 m, the vantage point on top of the Olympic Tower gives you a magnificent view of the Munich skyline. You can even see into the mountains when the weather is good (foehn).
The restaurant in the Olympic Tower rotates. Turning 360° in one hour, you can not only enjoy the food in the Olympic Tower Restaurant, you also enjoy the view of Munich from all angles as you eat.
People shy of these lofty heights can also gaze over Munich from the 50 m Olympic Hill. It’s a popular place for friends to gather on New Year’s Eve, commanding a stunning view of every firework in Munich.
Numerous events such as flea markets, sporting events and open air culture are firmly established in the Olympic Park. It is a great place for sports’ enthusiasts to jog, walk, cycle or skate.
The Olympic Lake is a place to let your hair down or hire a pedalo. In winter it is fantastic for Nordic skiing or sledging. The almost 50 m elevation creates sledge rides that force even adults to stick both feet in the ground to slow down.
Swimmers can enjoy a 50 m pool and a 10 m diving tower in the Olympic Swimming Centre in Munich.
The park railway takes you comfortably to every sight in the Olympic Park Munich.
