When it comes to architecture in Munich you just can’t ignore the Olympic Stadium. Opened to the public in 1972 it’s still one of the biggest attractions and still one of my favourite locations round here.
Wenn man über Architektur in München spricht, kommt man am Olympiastadion von 1972 einfach nicht vorbei. Das Stadion und der umliegende Olympiapark gehören nachwievor zu den populärsten Attraktionen und sind noch immer eins meiner Lieblingsziele in der Region.

Captured two years ago in the Olympiapark (Olympic Park) on top of the Olympic Hill. The man-made hill towers for 60 meters and provides a brilliant view over the city on clear days. Originally it was a dump for the debris of destroyed buildings after the war. Today it is a green hill which is also used for sledging and other activities in winter.
In the background you can see the Olympic Stadium from 1972 and the Olympic Village (on the far right, partly coverted by the watermark). The Olympic Village has a sad history as it was the place where Israeli athlets where attacked by eight members of Palestinian terror organisation “Black September” during the games.
Summer as it should be. People lazing in the Olympiapark.
