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.
