    During the 1936 Olympic Games, the 3,600 male athletes with attendants and staff lived 18 km from the Olympic Stadium, including the American Jesse Owens. With four gold medals he was the most successful Olympian of the XI. Summer Olympics. The village was intended as a retreat and training ground, it was also offered an entertainment program. Feeding was divided into nations, women were forbidden to enter. From the Nazi side was planned from the beginning to use the village later as barracks, in this aspect, his name "village of peace" almost cynical.

    Over the years, the village has been used for a variety of purposes, since 1992 it is empty.

    A look at the website confirms unfortunately that there is no possibility to make a tour without a guide and the price of 75 € for 5 people is then quite violent. Spontaneously, nothing is to be reported at least 14 days in advance.

    Many interesting things. Partially affected by decay. Visit is definitely worth it. The guides are great.

    Too bad that the area is not freely accessible. Those who are only on the transit usually do not have the time to organize a guided tour. Too bad. It all looks very interesting what you see from the fence.
