At the Olympic Stadium in Berlin was the World Cup in 2006 held just as the Olympic Games in 1936. We are walking on historic ground where a huge building from a dramatic time meets today’s major public events. Welcome to the Olympic Stadium in Berlin!
The Olympic Stadium in Charlottenburg
Located in the Charlottenburg district we find this colossus. The look is the same as when it was built in 1934. The only difference is modernized renovation and removal of all the Third Reich national socialistic symbols that adorned the stadium.
Built for the Olympics in Germany
The capacity has now been reduced to 76,176 seats because of the introduction of seats for everyone.
World Cup 2006
The next major construction project at the Olympic Stadium where before the World Cup 2006 in Germany, when all the seats got cover by a roof, as well as new areas were built. The stadium has, however, been allowed to retain its look because it is classed as a historic building.
Around the stadium stands many statues inspired by Roman architecture.
