WELCOME TO THE OLYMPIAHALLE
Munich's largest event hall
The Olympiahalle is Munich’s largest event hall. In addition, the second largest event location in the Olympic Park. The largest venue is the Olympic Stadium. It is the central structure of the Olympic Park and unique thanks to its world-famous tent roof by architect Frei Otto. The opening and closing ceremonies of the 1972 Olympic Games took place there. After that it was mainly used as a venue for FC Bayern Munich and TSV 1860 Munich. When the footballers moved into the newly built Allianz Arena in 2005, cultural events such as music concerts by world stars take place here – to this day. The Rolling Stones, Michael Jackson and Metallic are among the international world stars who have performed here. Younger generation artists are also represented with Coldplay, Andreas Gabalier and Robbie Williams. Up to 72,000 fans can enjoy concerts in this top atmosphere. The Olympiahalle is unique due to its versatility and just as diverse as the events themselves: sport, culture and entertainment, exhibitions, concerts, shows and general meetings. It is a prime example of successful reuse. The Olympic Hall was built on the occasion of the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich. From 2007 to 2009, the entire hall was renovated for 50 million euros and a logistics center was installed. It has a capacity of 15,500 spectators and is therefore the venue for concerts by top international acts. The list of stars reads like a who’s who of the music scene. Artists from pop, rock, classical, jazz, musical and entertainment are represented. But exciting major sporting events in the Olympiahalle also mean that the house is sold out. The hall also impresses international audiences with its external facade. Another special feature are the countless stage and light variations. Another expansion is the Small Olympic Hall, which opened in 2011. It is partly underground and offers space for up to 3,600 visitors. It can be used as a supplement to the Olympic Hall or offers space, for events that are not that big, as a separate event location.
