A total of twenty buildings compose this gigantic complex that even has its own Russian Church. The entire infrastructure lays inside Olympia Park, a beautiful green area with a lake and artificial hills.
The brand of 69.000 people Olympiastadion is its glass roof, a tensile structure that can also be found in other buildings of this complex. The stadium and the entire city of Munich can be admired from Olympiaturn, a 291 m construction from which in a clear day you can even see the Alps.
