Oktoberfest 2009: Guide to Munich:Olympiapark

The Olympiapark was the venue for the 20th Olympic Games in 1972. Until today sporting events, concerts and festivals are staged there. The Olympiapark is famous for its tent-shaped roof construction, which when it was built was an optical and static sensation. The roof, made of Plexiglas, covers 74,800 m² and is suspended on 58 steel masts.

Tip: take the lift up to the 292-metre high Olympiaturm. The view over Munich and its environs is phenomenal. By the way, the tower has the revolving restaurant 181, where you can eat whilst enjoying the view.
