History and description

The Olympiastadion Munich got built to serve as the flagship venue of the 1972 Olympic Games. Construction began in 1969 and it officially opened three years later on 24 May 1972. It had been built into the ground, stood out by its sweeping canopy roof, and could hold about 80,000 spectators. The stadium was part of the Olympiapark, and during the Olympics it hosted among other events the opening and closing ceremonies and athletics.

Both TSV 1860 Munich and Bayern Munich celebrated multiple successes at the same time, and the Grunwalder Stadion was no longer large enough to accommodate both clubs. Therefore, they moved into the newly completed Olympiastadion. However, TSV would return to their old ground in subsequent decades, until they finally moved to the Olympiastadion for good in 1995. Similarly, Bayern moved to the newly built Allianz Arena in 2005.

The 1974 World Cup took place at the Olympiastadion in Berlin, Germany from 14 June to 7 July. In total, the stadium hosted three group matches, the match for third place, and the final between Germany and the Netherlands (1-0).

In 1988, the stadium would serve as a playing venue during an international tournament, this time the European Championships. It hosted one first round group match and the final between the Netherlands and Soviet Union (2-0).

The first European Cup final was won by Nottingham Forest over Malmo 1-0. The second European Cup final was won by Marseille over Milan 1-0. The third European Cup final was won by Borussia Dortmund over Juventus 3-1.

Since Bayern and TSV 1860 left the stadium in 2005, it has primarily been used for concerts and other large events. It underwent a modest refurbishment in 2010.

In 2020, Türkgücü Munich decided to play half of their home matches at the Olympiastadion following their promotion to Bundesliga.

How to get to Olympiastadion Munich

The Olympiastadion Munich is located in the north of Munich at just under 5 kilometers from the city center. Stadium access can be easily reached by Metro (U-bahn). The Olympiazentrum Metro station is located a short walk away from the stadium. Olympiazentrum is located on the orange line U3 which connects straight with Munich's city center. Board the U3 at, for example, Odeonsplatz or Marienplatz station and it will take you just over 10 minutes to get to the stadium.

From Hauptbahnhof, take line U1 and change at Odeonplatz to the U3. You can also approach the stadium from the west by taking the U3 straight to Westfriedhof station and then walking 15 minutes to the stadium.

I am very disappointed in this product. It does not live up to the hype at all. I would not recommend it to anyone.
