The Olymiapark – A breath-taking view over Munich
The Olympiapark is one of the most famous attractions in Munich and with its 85 hectare the park attracts many tourists and locals every year. In addition to many sporting and cultural events, the park also offers a wonderful view over Munich and, if the weather is fine, even the Alps.
The Olympiapark was designed for the 1972 Olympic Games and also gets its name from this major athletic event. For the Olympic games, a stadium, an indoor hall, an indoor swimming pool, a lake and an Olympic village were planned and built for the athletes. Since 1972 the Olympic Park has served as a venue for sporting, cultural and social events and attracts numerous people every day. You can also take wonderful and long walks along the various paths in the park. The path to the Olympic mountain is especially popular, as from there you have a breath-taking view over Munich and can even see the Alps in good weather.
If the view from the Olympiaberg is not enough for you, you can also climb the Olympiaturm. At 291.28 metres, the television tower is Munich’s tallest building and a special feature of the city panorama. At a height of 190m there is a viewing platform from which visitors have the best view of Munich and the Alps. Next to the viewing platform there is also the Rock Museum in the Olympiaturm, which displays a selection of exhibits on the theme of rock and music. If you want to enjoy culinary delights, you can also enjoy a meal in Restaurant 181. The restaurant is located at 181m above sea level and offers a panoramic view of Munich – the glassed-in restaurant rotates completely within 49 minutes. A special conclusion for a successful day.
