Olympic Stadium

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8

On 26 August 1972, eighty thousand people experienced the parade of 121 teams through the Marathon Gate at the Munich Olympic Stadium In brilliant sunshine, which made the shimmering tent roof construction look even more impressive, visitors from all over the world and the "Youth of the World" united to show an unforgettable display of colours. The XX Olympic summer games were opened.

Since then, the Olympic Stadium has always been a national and international focal point.

Top athletes return again and again to the eight tracks and the facilities for long and triple jump, high jump, discus, hammer and javelin throwing, and shot put: most recently at the European Athletics Championships in 2002, the pre-Olympic Team Challenge 2004, and the Spar European Cup with the top eight national teams in 2007.

Not only records in sporting highlights are celebrated in this stadium, but also open-air concerts from classical to hard rock: With the Rolling Stones in 1982, the era of outstanding open-air concerts in the Olympic Stadium began. With a classical concert and five open air rock concerts, 2006 was a record year in stadium events, with three sold-out concerts attributed to Robbie Williams alone - this is also still unrivalled. Those who will fill this stadium are, without a doubt, among the most successful of of their genre - from the Three Tenors to AC/DC.

But nothing else has made the Olympic stadium as famous as football: In 1974, Gerd Mueller scored the goal which made the German national team the world football champions after defeating Holland. In 1988, the Oranje-Stars finally won their first title and became the European football champions. All the world's greatest teams have been guests and many footballers have made football history in the Olympic stadium - whether in the German nation league, in the Champions League, in cup or in national games. The football era has since ended. On 14 May 2005, FC Bayern Munich played their last home game at the Olympic Stadium, ending by celebrating their 17th championship in this stadium. Football returned, however, just one year later- but with the cultural prelude to the World Cup 2006 and the FIFA Fan Fest. But who would have imagined that. Indeed, in 2012, the Olympic Stadium returned once again to the big football stage: with the women's final of the UEFA Champions League and over 50,000 spectators.

Although professional football is history - the Olympic Stadium continues to be a living venue! Already in 2005, a number of new events at the Olympic Stadium lured whole new target groups into the Olympic Park. And also in the following years, with ten to fifteen major events per year, it was demonstrated that the Olympic Stadium is also a place for exceptional events in the future. Thus, under the canopy roof, the stadium continues to shine as a brilliant example of excellent architecture combined with functionality.
