Within the middle of the Olympic Stadium you can find four ski-jump ramps. From training to world championships, the four ski-jumps are very impressive in size and fortitude. I can't believe they jump off the largest ramp because it is a looooong - way down, not only the ramp, but the entire hill! The ramps are impressive; however, if you... More

Like others have said there is not much to see, but it's still history. It's very impressive to see how big these jumps are in person. I stopped in for a quick look before heading to my real destination of the Partnach Gorge.

Drove to this site early in the morning and walked on to the run out. Never having been to a ski jumping event much less one of it's sites, I can tell you I was impressed. Standing there also afforded the opportunity to close my eyes and think about the history of the area.

We lived at Olympia haus, so our terrace was just so we can see the ski jumps. It was nice in the evening to look young kids training skijumping and very near doing slalom. It was pitty it was not enough snow for cross country skiing which we wanted to do. We went to Eckbauer one day by lift and... More

Cool site, but not much to see in November at least. Interesting sculptures around the perimeter and fun to see how the spectators used to watch the Olympics on traditional benches, etc.

Our hotel was literally right outside the Olympiaschanze so we wandered over and had a look. The track has been updated obviously but the old building and seating is still there which is quite interesting. Makes you realise how much bigger everything has gotten. There were just minimal wooden benches in a horseshoe shape at the bottom of the jump,... More

Stop by at this place on my way to the Partnachklamm. What a great time as this was my first time in life visiting and seeing the world ski jump arena, of course.. I live in tropical country which never had a winter time. It was just amazing to feel the sensation be in the place that usually I just... More

We have visited the Olympiaschanze in late November and it looks fascinating from outside but we could not do any thing else. No body on it and it was close. I think it is because of our timing may be! but if this is all it does not worth to see it.
