The Olympic Park

Home to the 1972 Summer Olympics, Munich's spectacular Olympic Park covers an area of some 2.7 million square meters on the Oberwiesenfeld, a former training ground for the Royal Bavarian army.

The Olympic Park

Now a major recreational center, this huge facility hosts a variety of major concerts and events, including the Tollwood Festival, held twice per year (in summer and winter) and attracting upwards of one-and-a-half million visitors. A number of fun family activities have been introduced over the years, including a stadium roof climb, zip lining, and behind-the-scenes tours showcasing the facility's splendid architecture and design.

Also of interest is the Olympic Tower, a 290-meter-high television tower built in 1968 that was renamed in honor of the Games. Of its two Körbe (pods), it's the Aussichtskorb you'll want to visit due to its fine revolving restaurant and viewing platforms offering breathtaking views over the city.
