History of the Olympic Park

The Olympic Park in Munich was built for the 1972 Olympic Games. Its sports facilities, designed by the architect G√ľnter Behnisch and the engineer Frei Otto, are masterpieces of modern architecture and are known for their innovative, tent-like structures. Since the Games, the park has developed into a centre for entertainment and sport, regularly hosting concerts, sporting events and cultural events. The Olympic Tower, which was also opened in 1972, is a landmark of the city with its 291 metres in height and the rotating Restaurant 181, offering visitors an unforgettable view over Munich and the Alps.

Travelling to the Olympic Park

The Olympic Park is very easy to reach by public transport. The best way to get to the Olympic Park from the main railway station is by underground. Get off at the stations Olympiazentrum (U3, U8) or Milbertshofen (U2). From both stations it is only a few minutes' walk to the Olympic Tower.
