Massive area to relax and enjoy the views. Great for picnics and playing games. On the day we visited there were no charge.

Admission fee is 50 RMB. The Olympics was held in Beijing in 2008. Since then, this place has since been preserved for multiple uses. It is monstrously huge. The stadium holds about 91K seats, about 58 sq mil and made from about 42 tons of steel. When you look around, there are 3 buildings on the left facing the stadium... More

We stopped at the Birdsnest and walked to the overhead pass not only to view the birdsnest but also to see the surrounding landscape. The Park is bisected by a major highway and has high rise office buildings around it. It semed souless but that feeling was everywhere we went in China. Worth a look

The whole park would need a lot more lighting, and more people. It felt weird Walking around there in the afternoon, when there was almost no people around. And there is in the park too, that one was empty too. You should visit this Place though, the stadium is great!

Over the decades, most purpose built OLYMPIC stadia, cost a helluva lot of money, and cost a helluva lot more to maintain!! Usually at a big, big loss. The Birds Nest is no exception. The frozen ice hockey rink was in use, to generate some income. Built to show the World, CHINA HAS ARRIVED! A world show PIECE.!! If U... More

If you in Beijing and have a free hour, it's worth paying a visit to Olympic Park. Seeing the Bird's Nest and Water Cube in person really brings back memories of the games. Great for taking some photos too.

If your'e in the area it's a cool sight to see. The architecture is unique and cool - but it's not a must see, not something you HAVE to go out of your way to see.

So good to see the water cube and birds nest up close. After watching all the highlights during the games. Was a great buzz to see it up close. Definitely worth the ride out there on the metro.

We did a "drive by" observation of the Bird's Nest Stadium, the Water Cube, and the Olympic Green to take some pictures of what recalls for us the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. It took only a few minutes to complete the visit but it served as a nice reminder of the marvelous opening events for those particular Olympic Games and... More
