The colour of the seat shells is determined by the historical colour concept of the Olympiapark.
Looks like a running track, but is coloured asphalt.
Olympiastadion with floodlights
The tent roof is up to 80 meters high. You had to be free from giddiness when laying the roof panels.
Construction work at the Olympiastadion, 1969
The center of Olympiapark‘s sports venues is formed by its main stadium called Olympiastadion. The world-famous tent roof construction was designed by German architect Frei Otto, winner of the 2015 Pritzker Architecture Prize. With space for 80,000 people (today: 69,000) it had the highest capacity of all facilities that were used during the Olympic Games in 1972. The opening ceremony as well as the closing ceremony were held in Olympiastadion. After the games it mainly served as a sports facility for both of Munich‘s football teams, FC Bayern and TSV 1860. After football got a new home in the Allianz Arena in 2005 the former Olympiastadion became host to various cultural and sporting events. The tent roof has a surface of about 75,000 square meters and can be walked on during guided tours.
