Olympia Park in Munich
The Olympiapark is a must for any sport lover. Located in the Oberwiesenfeld, it was built for the Olympics in 1972 and since then is the ultimate sports city of Munich.
The park has many facilities to accomodate the needs of the various sports. The Olympiastadion, now replaced by the more modern Allianz Arena, was the scene of the memorable games and continues to be used: it is an important location for international concerts and in 2002 hosted the European Athletics games.
The Olympic-sized swimming pool and the ice rink are open to the public, as well as other sports facilities all perfectly functioning.
The park has also an Auditorium which is used for large concerts and art exhibitions, while the artificial lake, especially in summer, becomes a meeting point for the young people who organize many events.
The park is dominated by the Olympic Tower, 290 meters high. From the summit you can admire a beautiful view of Munich, and inside there is a revolving restaurant where you can taste some local gastronomic specialties.
