Championsleague-Finale im Olympiastadion
1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Distinctive, unique and outstanding: with its spectacular construction under the iconic roof the Olympic Stadium is not only the architectural centerpiece of the Olympic Park – since its opening in 1972 it has also always been the most important venue of the biggest and greatest events in sports.

But also in terms of culture the Olympic Stadium is still one of Germany’s most important and leading locations. If AC/DC or Robbie Williams, if Genesis or Michael Jackson, the Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen or the Three Tenors: Many world stars have delivered impressive Open-Air-Concerts in front of a sold out crowd, there have also been some Rockfestivals lasting several days and drawing tens of thousands of spectators into the Stadium, like “Rock im Park” or the “Rockavaria” in 2015.

Munich’s Olympic Stadium has been a crowd puller ever since – and it will be one in the times to come.

The Summer Olympic Games in 1972 with the competitions in track and field and brilliant winners like Klaus Wolfermann, Ulrike Meyfarth or Heide Rosendahl; in football location of the World Cup in 1974 with Gerd Müller scoring the decisive goal in the final against the Netherlands and the European Championship 1988, when Marco van Basten marked one of the best goals of the century and helped Holland to win the title. Furthermore many unforgotten international matches of the German football team – from the inaugural match in May 1972 against the USSR (4-1) until the most remarkable 1-5 defeat againt England in a World-Cup-Qualifier in 2001.

Finals in European Cup Competitions like the Cup of Champions in 1979 and the Champions League in 1993 and finally in 1997 when Lars Ricken produced a stunning goal for Borussia Dortmund for the final score of 3-1 against Juventus Torino.

Moreover the Olympic Stadium has been the home ground for Bayern Munich for more than three decades. In the 33 years from 1972 to 2005 Bayern had played here the team has celebrated 17 German championships in the Stadium or had at least laid the foundation for it. And also the local rivals of 1860 Munich have experienced some memorable matches here.

In its history the Olympic Stadium has experienced many more significant major events in sports. For example, the European Athletics Championships in 2002, the Europe Cup in 2007 or trendy new sports like the Air & Style between 2005 and 2007 with the world’s best freestyle skiers.
