History and description

The Olympiastadion was extensively damaged in the Second World War, but has since been restored and continues to be used for football, concerts and other events. The stadium underwent a major renovation in 1972 and 1973, and the main focus of the renovations was preparing the stadium for the upcoming 1974 World Cup. The construction of two roofs over the upper tiers on both long sides was one of the main aspects of the renovations.

Germany faced Portugal, Argentina faced Nigeria, and Chile faced Australia. The three matches in the first group stage were held at the Olympiastadion in Berlin during the World Cup. Germany faced Portugal, Argentina faced Nigeria, and Chile faced Australia.

Some people in the city wanted to rebuild the stadium so that it could exclusively serve as a football stadium, but others argued that it should be renovated so that it can continue to serve as a multi-purpose venue. Ultimately, the decision was made to renovate the stadium rather than rebuild it.

After the decision had been made, the stadium was awarded the final of the 2006 World Cup.

The Olympiastadion renovation involved the complete reconstruction of the lower tier and the installation of a new roof. The works were completed in 2004, and the stadium was reopened with a friendly international match between Germany and Brazil (1-1).

This stadium was also used for the European Championship in 2020. During the 2006 World Cup, the Olympiastadion hosted four group matches, a quarter-final, and the final between Italy and France (1-1). It will also be used for the European Championship in 2020.

The stadium hosted the Champions League final between Barcelona and Juventus in 2015 (3-1).

In 2016, Hertha BSC presented plans to build their own new stadium. They were unhappy with the size of the non-football Olympiastadion and wanted to build a stadium with a capacity of 55,000 next to it.

How to get to the Olympiastadion

The Olympiastadion is located in the west of Berlin, just 7 kilometers from the western end of the Kurfürstendamm and 10 kilometers from Berlin's main railway station (Hauptbahnhof). It is part of the Olympic Park, which includes other sports facilities.  

The stadium can be easily reached by metro (U-Bahn). Take either line U2 or U12, which both can be boarded at several points in the city centre. Get off at stop Olympia-Stadion. It takes about 25 minutes to get to the stadium from Potsdamer Platz, and about 15 minutes from Zoologische Garten.

Alternatively, you can get to the stadium by commuter rail. Take either line S5 or S75 to the station Olympiastadion. Both lines link the stadium with Berlin's major railway stations in the center, and with station Spandau in the west.

The Olympiastadion is located in a beautiful green area near some nice parks and sports facilities. Though there are not a lot of places to eat and drink nearby, there are a few restaurants a half an hour walk away near the metro station Theodor-Heuss-Platz. There is no shortage of restaurants in Berlin, so there's no need to stress about finding something to eat. There are not a whole lot of hotels near the Olympiastadion. Michels Apart Hotel is the closest, a short walk away, Alecsa Hotel is a budget alternative a little further away, and Ivbergs Messehotel is also still just a walking distance.

All hotels near the Olympiastadion are available for booking. Of course, there are many other options in Berlin too.

Tickets for Hertha BSC games can be bought online, by phone, or at one of Hertha's seven fanshops. The ones at the Olympiastadion, Breitscheidplatz, Mall of Berlin, and Hauptbahnhof are the most conveniently located. Hertha only sells out a few high-profile matches per year. It is not always possible to buy tickets the day of the match, and so it is advised to buy them at least one day in advance.

Tickets for category 1 matches, the most expensive, cost between $33.00 and $96.00. Tickets for the Ostkurve fans section go for a flat $15.00, but are generally not available on general sale.

In the winter months they only run at 11am. The tour costs $11.00, and can be booked online. There is also a $2.00 discount if you buy your tickets in advance.

Hertha Berlin Club Grounds Tour

Relevant Internet links

Hertha BSC's website, VisitBerlin, and the tourism portal for Berlin, Bvg.de, are all official websites of the club. The stadium's delicious bratwurst and beer were a great addition to the event, and being able to take them with you to your seat was an amazing convenience. I bought my ticket on the official website and collected it from a kiosk two hours before the game started, which was easy and seamless.

I attended the Hertha vs. Eintracht Frankfurt Bundesliga game in February 2017.

Inside the stadium, I felt the posts that held up the roof on the top tier detract from its aesthetics and 25-35% (give or take) of the top tier is empty which takes away from the atmosphere. However, at the Ost Curve Hertha fans were very vocal. I imagine that the atmosphere would improve somewhat when the stadium is full.

additionally, the bratwurst inside the stadium were excellent, and beer is served too, and can be taken to your seat. I purchased my ticket on theofficial website, and collected from a kiosk 2 hours prior to kick-off, seamlessly.

One point of clarification in the description at the top of the page - the Olympiastadion is located to the west of Berlin, not the east.

I know I did not choose the best game but I went to Berlin on the day of the game. I like German stadiums and German fans. My next trip will be Bremen, Wolfsburg, Hamburg and Hannover.

I booked tickets to Berlin a few months ago, and selected the dates around the home game against Bayern Munich. I waited an age for the tickets to become available, but they never did. I emailed the club only to be told that they are already sold out. Does anyone know if people sell tickets outside of the ground on the day or are there any other websites I can try for people selling tickets for genuine reasons?

I mean, I watched Hertha vs Hamburg there, okay, we (Hamburg) brought 10.000 fans with us, but all in all the attendance was 61.000! Unfortunately we lost 0:3 there! But tomorrow is the rematch in the Volksparkstadion.

@Wojciech, You'll definitely want to watch Hertha vs a big historic club this weekend! Thestadion will be packed with fans as Hamburg brought 10,000 of them with them on their trip over. Unfortunately, we lost 0-3 in that game, but there's sure to be another exciting match tomorrow.

is always a tough opponent to play. I have planned this trip for Saturday's game against Dortmund, last year and can't wait to be in Berlin for the very first time. I am sure it won't be a disappointing game !!! I will let you know my views next week. BVB is always a tough opponent to play.

Dortmund I have planned to go to Berlin for the game against Dortmund last year, and I can't wait to be there for the very first time. I am sure it won't be a disappointing game!!! I will let you know my thoughts next week.

The stadium was mostly empty. I bought my ticket online and picked it up from the ticket window on the day. There is a station just outside the stadium. Supporters behind one of the goals were very live during the entire game. Recommended, but try to pick a good game to go to.
