In 1966, the International Olympic Committee awarded the 1972 Olympic Games to Munich. Within a constructon period of six years, the Olympic Park appeared at the feet of the 290 metre high Olympic tower - a collection of modern stadiums and sports halls. With the planning theme "Olympic Games in Green Surroundings", the buildings were embedded in an artificial landscape with an approximately 80,000 sqm lake.
After the end of the Olympic Games, the Munich Olympic Park developed to become one of the largest event and leisure centres in Europe.
To date, more than 8,000 sports, cultural and commercial events with more than 150 million visitors have taken place there. In addition, 2,000 training athletes and a number of walkers come every day, on weekends with good weather this figure can be up to 30,000.
As part of the 1972 Summer Olympics, additional Olympic sites were built approximately 3.5 km away from our hotel. (The Oberschleissheim regatta course and the Garching shooting range)
With the Oberschleissheim regatta course, Munich became a regatta venue of international standing. The regatta venue is popular with visitors from Germany and abroad as a training centre for the rowers and as a venue for significant rowing regattas, but also as a preparation facility for canoeing and rowing competitions. At the weekend, you can pursue a very special kind of selfawareness at the rowing regatta. Bungee jumping is organised by the company Jochen Schweizer in good weather conditions.
