The Scene

Over three-and-a-half decades after Munich hosted the 1972 Summer Olympic Games in Olympiapark, the park remains an inviting green haven for lovers of the great outdoors.

Over three-and-a-half decades after Munich hosted the 1972 Summer Olympic Games in Olympiapark, the park remains an inviting green haven for lovers of the great outdoors.

Whether visitors go rollerblading or biking around the perimeter of the lake, swimming in the Olympic pool, or simply strolling through one of the craft fairs, the open expanse is a wonderful place to spend a day in the sunshine.

The breathtaking grounds feature a reflective lake surrounded by the greenest of hills traversed by lovely hiking trails, as well as the Olympic Tower with its 360-degree view that offers sweeping panoramas of the city and, on a clear day, the distant Alps.

The park is also the site of numerous festivals, carnivals, and free concerts, as well as a number of fee-based activities like the Stadium Roof Climb and the Flying Fox zip line.

In winter, patrons can rent ice skates to practice pirouettes on the stadium’s impressive ice rink.

Yes, the Olympics are long gone, but Olympiapark still provides all its visitors with gold medal-caliber outdoor opportunities.

Tip from Emma:

The Olympic Stadium (Olympiahalle) hosts some of the world’s biggest artists. If a concert is sold out, never fear – just grab a blanket and some wine and park yourself on one of the hills overlooking the stadium. You can see and hear everything, and it’s free!

  • Crowd

    All types and ages. The park is also a popular hotspot for the students living in the former Olympic Village next door.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Live music in the park during the Summer Tollwood Festival. Concerts are free and often feature major acts. The festival also offers beer tents, craft stands, and plenty of food options. The BMW Museum is located next to the Olympic village.

    Check the website for special events, details, and a list of fee-based tours and activities.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Restaurants, cafés, and snack stands are located throughout the park and include the Olympiapark Beer Garden and the Olympic Restaurant, which is on the lake and offers outdoor deck seating.

  • Prices

    Olympic Tower €4.50. Food €2.50–€18. Beer €3.20–€4, wine €3.50–€6.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Casual.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    The park is always crowded on the weekends.

Good for skaters.... and that's about it

Um, I don't think this is a place worth checking out unless there is a big event going on at the stadium. Yeah people hang out in the sun, but only the ones that live in the housing black that are next to the place. They're young because they're poor students, but I wouldn't say there's a nightlife here, it's super far from downtown. And it's all concrete for the most part, and laid out like Euro trash architecture from the 90s -- which means it's excellent for skateboarding! But there are way more beautiful spots to spend a lazy day in the city, so go for that.
Truly lovely.

Original site of the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, this place is a sporting legacy. And you can, of course, till catch a lot of big sporting events here, as well as concerts, but that’s hardly the sum total of the Olympic Park’s offerings. Apart from the Olympic Stadium (which is a pretty cool thing to see), you’ve got the terraced pyramid structure of the Olympic Village, a big lake, rolling hills, limitless shaded nooks beneath the trees, and tons of people taking advantage of this open space both in summer and winter. In other words, it can get loud. But fun. The Olympic Tower is a real highlight and offers a grand view of the city. You can go swimming, play miniature golf, head over to BMW World, and hit the beer garden (which is kinda pricey, watch yourself). They do lots of open-air music and cinema events here, too. Definitely a must for first-time visitors, many of whom dig that stupid zip-line thing but....whatever.
