In 1972 Munich hosted the 20th Summer Olympic Games. For sporting events, the city had a special place, which later became known informally as the Olympic Park. In fact, this area includes not only the park, where you can hold a picnic in good weather, but also the current stadium, the Olympic Tower with an observation deck and the former press room, transformed into a shopping center. Concerts, fairs, exhibitions and all kinds of celebrations are held here and the sports arena hosts a variety of world, European and German championships. Tourists love this place also because the BMW Museum is next to it, and it is very easy to combine the cultural program with outdoor activities.
