Free to roam around; the olympicstadion tour is there for you to get what you want from this magnificent stadia. The history of the place makes it more than your average football stadium tours that are on offer around Europe!!

Even if you're not an athletics (or a football) fan, you should make a visit for the atmosphere of this building. I keep thinking going back someday on some event.

We travelled to see the Olympia Stadium on a rather rainy and gloomy day, but for a 5 Euro entrance fee, we got to go inside the stadium itself and the rain no longer mattered. Very interesting to see Fascist-style architecture (the stadium was built between 1934-1936) as it existed during the era of Hitler and as it still exists today. Relatively far from the Mitte (downtown), but again, by U-bahn, it is easy to get there.

The Glockenturm features an interesting exhibition about the history of the Olympic complex as well as fantastic views of west Berlin from the top. At 77 metres tall (there is a lift, though wheelchair access may be difficult), it dominates the adjacent grassed Maifeld as well as the stadium and the surrounding buildings. It is normally open even when the stadium or the Maifeld are closed for events - we went up while a polo tournament took place on the Maifeld. If you're short of time, this may be the best part of the Olympic complex to see.

Entrance is included in the combination ticket with the stadium. Most convenient public tpt is via S-Bahn station Pichelsberg rather than Olympiastadion.

For British visitors: the buildings of the Olympic complex housed the HQ of the British Military Government and Berlin Brigade; the Maifeld hosted the annual Queen's Birthday Parade; and the orientation plaque at the top of the tower still identifies the British Military Hospital (now the Paulinenkrankenhaus) and the broadcast mast for BFN (British Forces Network, now British Forces Broadcasting Service), though the latter has been dismantled.

Nothing symbolizes the Nazi era more than the Olympic Stadium. It was here that Jessie Owens, winning 4 gold medals, became the darling of the games much to the chagrin of Adolf Hitler. It was here that the first television broadcasts originated. The exterior is almost totally the same as it was in 1936. The inside has been modernized as it is now the home of Berlin's soccer team. You can see where the Olympic flame burned, and see the medal results showing Owens' 4 gold medal wins. You can see where Hitler's box was when he proclaimed the games open. I took the tour but I don't really recommend it. You get to see the locker rooms etc.but they are extremely spartan. The current players have nothing more than an open stall with a chair in a small cinder block room. Nothing much to see that's worth while that you can't see walking around on your own. It's only a short 20 minutes subway ride or so from center city. It's definitely worth a visit.
