Munich was host to the XXth Olympic Summer Games in 1972. Prior to this, a 3 km2 sports park was built north of Munich. The adventurous tent-roof construction and the 290-metre high tower have become the modern landmarks of the city. Apart from various events in the Olympic Stadium and the Olympic Hall, the park offers a wide range of recreational facilities, for example the summer festival in August and the “Tollwood” arts festival: www.tollwood.de
