The Olympic Park from the 1972 Games still entertains and exercises locals and visitors to this day
That's quite a spider
It's said that this complex built for the 1972 Summer Olympics was inspired by the pattern of morning dew on a spiderweb - from the aerial shots we've seen, it certainly is suggestive enough of that. Ever since, its 300 hectares (just over a square mile) have served as a recreational complex where Muncheners can enjoy skating rinks, pools, and all sorts of other sport facilities, as well as an enormous and diverse aquarium. Looming 291 metres (955 feet) over it all, however, is the district's icon, the Olympiaturm, a radio/TV tower which also includes a revolving restaurant with not only eye-popping views, but award-winning cuisine that even rates a Michelin star.
