On ice and parquet: Munich's new top arena

The place has experienced a lot. In 1972, the world's best track cyclists raced here for Olympic medals, and later the Olympic Spirit experience museum moved in. After the demolition of the Olympic cycling stadium in 2015, the foundation stone for Munich's new multifunctional arena was laid in February 2021: The SAP Garden, where multiple German ice hockey champions EHC Red Bull München are expected to play all their home games from 2024. FC Bayern, also multiple BBL champions, will continue to share the SAP Garden as their home arena with the Audi Dome, the former 1972 Olympic basketball hall at Westpark. Three ice rinks will be available for school, recreational and popular sports. The Danish architectural firm 3XN and the landscape architects from Latz und Partner ensured the harmonious integration into the Olympic Park.

This was the site of the Olympic cycling stadium from 1972 onwards, where track cyclists determined their Olympic champions and medal winners at the Summer Games of the time. After 1972, four tennis courts were placed inside the stadium, in the interior of the 285.71-metre-long cycling track, which was lined with Doussié-Afzelia precious wood. At the end of the 1990s, the stadium was converted into the "Olympic Spirit" experience world, and from 2004 onwards, the then named "Event Arena" served as a congress centre and exhibition venue. In December 2014, the city of Munich decided to build a new multifunctional hall on this site, and the demolition of the Event Arena was completed in 2015.
