Bike Touring Highlight
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.
eg 2km from Elstal station or from U2 Olympiastation just under 20km by bike
