Olympiapark (Olympic Park)
The 3 km² Olympic park was built for the Olympic Summer
Games in 1972, on a former military drill ground called "Oberwiesenfeld",
that had also been used as Munich's first civil airport.
Over a four year period thousands of craftsmen worked to create
an attractive, hilly landscape with an artificial lake, paths
and impressive buildings, on the rubble left by the second world
The idea, that the area should also be used after the Olympic
games, has been well realized: in the Olympic park it is possible
to take long walks, row a boot on the lake, skate, toboggan,
go freeclimbing or swim in the beautiful indooor swimming pools
- making the park one of the most well loved recreation areas
