Olympiapark München aus der Vogelperspektive
Leisure paradise

The Olympic Park is one of the great highlights of Munich. With its unique stadiums, major sporting events, concerts and exhibitions, as well as a wide range of leisure activities, it attracts many visitors

Munich Olympic Park (Olympiapark)

SPONSORED STORY Munich’s Olympic Park was the venue for the XX. 1972 Olympic Games. Today it is an attractive location for cultural and sporting events, for sports, games and excitement. Or “only” – or above all! – a green paradise for walking and relaxing. With its famous tent roof, mountain, lake and lake stage, the park, which covers approximately 225 football pitches, is one of the largest green spaces in the Bavarian capital.

The best thing to do first is to drive up to the Olympic Tower and get an excellent view from a height of 190 metres. The view of the park, Munich, the surrounding countryside and, on a clear day, the Alps, is as unique as the Olympic Tower itself.

Fancy exploring the Olympic Park with a tour guide? The stadium tour takes you through the Olympic Stadium’s VIP and team areas, the venue for major sporting events and unique open-air concerts. Climbing onto the Olympic Stadium’s roof is a spectacular experience. And perhaps the crowning glory of the tented roof tour is flying over the arena on the “Flying Fox”. However, it is also possible to visit the stadium without a guided tour.

For those who like to explore on their own terms, we recommend a ride on the park railway or downloading the audio guide and going on a voyage of discovery yourself. You can also learn about the park’s history and discover the most beautiful places with the “iPad Rally”. The iPad shows the way, but you determine the route yourself. To put it briefly, there are many ways to explore the Olympic Park.

If you feel like getting active, there are many other park activities available – such as ice skating, swimming, 5-a-side football, jogging, mini golf and much more.
