For a nominal fee, get a chance to visit the stadium where records were broken and history made in August 2008! Awesome structure with fascinating construction style. Visit the museum inside and the store. Visit different parts of the stadium such as the lower level seating, upper deck and soak in the views.

This stadium is HUGE. It's difficult to perceive just how big it is until you go into it. It's inspiring to be in the the location of the 2008 Olympics. It's also a great photo opportunity.

Thought it looked better on television coverage but still amazing building to see in person. Beautiful keep inside and outside very clean with lots of athletes training at the venue. Definitely worth a look.

Easy to reach by tube, providing you don't mind being a sardine! Area between the birds nest & the water cube is a real thriving public space, great for people watching. A few yuan gets a ticket for inside where high level wrap around screens replay parts of the games. A really iconic structure.

The view of the stadium is worth a short stop. The stadium is walking distance from Olympic sports centre subway station. One must reach the spot about half an hour prior to sunset and stay till sunset to see the lights of Birds Nest.

Worth a short stop. Fun to look at and see up close. Also to knock on the pillars to find out what they were made out of....been wanting to know that since it was built. Also has a wall with all the award winners names, events, and country of origin. I think we spent maybe an 45 mins. Had to... More

We stopped here on the way to the Great Wall. The stadium is pretty cool but not quite as breathtaking as I expected. The rest of the park is an enormous concrete expanse and there's not much else worth seeing in my opinion. If you can do it as part of a day tour to the Great Wall then I'd... More

The stadium closes at 5, so arrive before then if you want to enter . The walk around the bird's nest is frustrating with lots of fencing so you can't walk straight from long A to B. Lots of detours so prepare to burn lots of calories One can't walk from the bird's next to the water cube either. A... More

The Birds Nest stadium is an iconic structure in Beijing. Nowhere have I seen such creative architecture than in China.
