Up here on one of Europe's highest towers, there is no sign of the hustle and bustle of the big city. Take a deep breath, switch off - and then breathe a sigh of relief. From the viewing platforms of the tower at a height of 190 metres, the shiny silhouette of the tent roof of the Olympic Park is a shining example of extraordinary architecture.
The covered platform is also home to the "Future Platform". The area offers an exhibition on the future of live entertainment and is also used for smaller events such as the Munich Weitblick.
At 291.28 metres high, Munich's most prominent landmark is three times taller than the towers of the Frauenkirche. Since its opening on 22 February 1968, the 52,500-ton giant has defied all Föhn and autumn storms.
The Olympic Tower will be closed for renovation work from June 2024, probably for two years. For this reason, voucher sales for the Olympic Tower ascent have been discontinued. Vouchers already purchased remain valid until 31.05.2024! Until the end of May 2024, Munich's highest landmark can still be visited during the usual opening hours and the view of the state capital and surrounding area can be enjoyed. We look forward to seeing you!
