Schwabing-West, Munich –
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.
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!
All types and ages. The park is also a popular hotspot for the students living in the former Olympic Village next door.
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.

Olympic Tower €4.50. Food €2.50–€18. Beer €3.20–€4, wine €3.50–€6.
The park is always crowded on the weekends.
