That beats everything. Nowhere you are nearer the sky over Munich than here. With its overall elevation of 291,28 meters the tower is not only the city’s highest building but also one of the worldwide best known landmarks. The viewing platform on an altitude of 190 meters above ground provides the widest and most spectacular panoramic view on Munich and beyond its borders.

One of the tower’s biggest attractions is the revolving restaurant in a height of 181 meters completing one turn in 53 minutes and letting the guest enjoy the 360-degree-view while sitting on his table. Since 2004 the Olympic Tower is home of the “Rockmuseum Munich”, maybe not the biggest but undisputably the worldwide highest of its kind. The exhibition consists of tickets, pictures, newspaper articles but also of stage outfit and instruments of stars like Freddie Mercury, Pink Floyd or the Rolling Stones.
