The Olympiapark is the modern city park in Munich and was planned for the 1972 Summer Olympics by landscape architect Günther Grzimek and Behnisch Architects. All strata of the population should feel comfortable here. When you walk around the park, you quickly notice that this has been achieved.
This highlight is located on the square in the center of the Olympic sports facilities, between the Olympic Stadium, the Olympic Hall and the Olympic Lake. So far it is called Coubertin-Platz after the founder of the modern Olympic Games, Pierre de Coubertin. From July 26th, 2021 it will be called Hans-Jochen-Vogel-Platz. During his time as Mayor of Munich, the great SPD politician brought the Olympic Games to Munich and thus gave his city a drastic cure in terms of modernity. He passed away in the summer of 2020 and paying tribute to him at this point goes well with his sustainable work for urban society.
