  • Completing the main attractions and because the access is very easy with one of the metro lines you can visit at least externally. From the Metro until the stage walk about 10 ', there is a park and other facilities (swimming pool, hockey). Gathers enough world for various actions ...

  • Despite his history, the Olympic Stadium in Berlin is a very nice building. We had a guided tour and thus have very extensive information on the Olympic Spielken, the place, the importance and also the recent football history. I can only recommend a guided tour.

  • Firstly it's easy to get to from Berlin. Although when a match it on I guess it will be very busy. Once you find the way into the stadium you need to pass through, pay and chose guided tours or walk round yourself. All of the sights are in the open air. Wrap up warm if visiting in winter the area is very open. The architecture is typical of the time it was built. Although the stadium has recent additions these have not affected the feel. It is well maintained which makes it easy to imagine what the Olympics would have been like in 1936. Some areas even have parts of the cancelled 1916 arena. Easy to read information boards which are very informative. It's a must visit if you have half a day and want to spend it out of town. Pair this with Charlottenburg Palace which is close. Two excellent examples of German history.
  • We bought tickets for English tour. For some reason 1 EUR was added to the tickets price like print service or something similar. I printed tickets using my printer so it's strange. When tour starts we let the guide know than we need to come away from tour little earlier. The guide said it's not possible and proposed us to decide whether we stay. Finally when tour went to the end and we were allowed to come away, nobody opened the door for us. The stadium was terribly dirty although we had a tour at 1:30. Yesterday there was a match, and everywhere there were a lot of garbage which even smelled somewhere. Bottles, paper, glasses were everywhere. No chance to make nice pictures. In general tour was not interesting. We seen almost nothing inside. Real disappointment. If you ever visited other world stadium, you can easy skip this one.
  • I came here with no special interest in sport but with a lot of interest for history and architecture. I've been disappointed because in a normal Thursday, without any tourist around, the entrance was scheduled as full for groups and individual entrance wasn't allowed. So I just took a walk around the delicious building and the rest of the story is on Wikipedia.
  • When first approaching this mammoth and historic stadium you can't help but feel small. Standing in the far back seats and taking in the view of the stadium is great fun. The only complaint I has is that aside from the stadium there isn't much else to see in the area surrounding it. Entry is cheaper if you have certain train tickets and travel passes so make sure to show anything that might give you a discount.
  • A must-go at Berlin! Entering the stadium is still breathtaking. Arrive early before the match and have a picnic on the vast lawn around the stadium!

Where to stay in Berlin

The Kreuzberg neighborhood near the Oberbaumbrüke bridge is central and full of Berlin icons: street art, a piece of the Berlin Wall, the East Side Gallery, and a proliferation of cafes. Friedrichshain is another option with a hip vibe due to the students who congregate at its cafes and galleries. Consider Mitte as a historic home base. Mitte is the area where almost all of Berlin's well-known buildings are located, and it is within walking distance of Alexanderplatz. For a peaceful residential area, try Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf where the streets are lined with boutiques and quiet coffee shops.
