Munich 72

The Olympic compound in Munich was the venue of the XX. Olympic summer games in 1972. At a guided tour through the world-famous ensemble which was designed by the architect’s office Behnisch & Partner you will visit the Olympic Stadium, the Olympic Hall with its 185 m high Olympic Tower and the Olympic Park with Olympic Mountain and Olympic Lake.

Munich 72 and its history

Apart from the varied history of the place which was used as an airport and rubble mountain, you get to know through which idea the architects hit on the concept of the sensational and back then completely new roof shape. A memorial stone in the former Olympic Village reminds of the tragic event on September 5 when Palestine terrorists took eleven athletes of the Israeli team hostage and a total of 17 people lost their lives.
