Along with the opening of the new visitor center is now also implemented the concept as well as new visitors. From then on the visitors of the entire Olympia Park in Berlin is open – and this only with the purchase of a ticket! The Olympiastadion Berlin, the Glockenturm and the Olympiapark itself can now be explored on your own or visit various tours. There is much to discover on a journey through the history of the Olympic site of 1936.
Very happy were the Petersens from Denmark, where they were permitted to enter as the first guests of the new visitors centre. Before the little family went back to the far north, they still looked over the site and cast a glance into the Olympiastadion Berlin. We say: gensyn Petersen family På i Berlin!
At this point the board and management would like to say “thank you” to the citizens of Berlin and the many guests who travel every year from all over the world to Berlin to visit the Olympiastadion Berlin and its neighbors!
