Berlin Olympiastadion

The Olympiastadion is today the home of Hertha BSC, a German soccer team, however the stadium has a long history.

The site where the stadium currently stands was first used as a horse racing track. In 1909, Otto March planned and built a 2400 meter long racing track here, which was upgraded to the original Olympic Stadium after Berlin was awarded the 1916 Olympic Games.

The stadium as it is today was built by the Nazis in preparation for the 1936 Berlin Olympics. The design is unusual in that it is only just over 16 meters high. However, the final seating capacity of 90,000 is reached because the inside of the stadium is dug over 10 meters into the ground.

On the west side of the stadium is the structure's highest point, the bell tower at 77m. It is possible to catch the lift to the top, to get a view over the stadium.

Recently, it was host to the 2006 World Cup Final, where France beat Brazil 1-0. In addition to soccer, large athletic events and even concerts are held here.

Tours of the stadium are offered every day of the week outside of match days and last about 60 to 75 minutes. During the tour, the history of the stadium will be explained, and includes the VIP sections, changing rooms and warm up areas. Be aware that the tours are unfortunately offered in German only.

It is also possible to view the stadium without a guide, and there is even an audio guide available for a small added cost.

Tickets can be bought at the Osttor (East Gate), near the entrance to the stadium. The tickets can only be bought with cash, so keep that in mind.
