Guided tours

Olympic stadium rooftop tour

There’s excitement at base camp: following the safety brief and final check of the ropes and carabiners by the tour guides, it’s time to begin your climb over the northern corner and along the world-famous track to the roof of the Olympiastadion (Olympic Stadium).

At heights of over 50 metres, you can enjoy some breathtaking views, stretching over the Munich city skyline and the towers of the Frauenkirche. In good weather, you can even see as far as the Alps and Germany’s highest mountain, Zugspitze.

During this incredible tour, the guides bring the history of the Olympiapark back to life, inspiring guests with the story behind the architecture and construction of the world-famous stadium for the 20th Olympic Games in summer 1972.

Then it’s time for the cherry-on-the-top of this 1.5-hour tour over the Olympic stadium's roof: A thrilling descent, taking the most direct route from the edge of the canopy roof to the iconic track of the Olympiastadion forty metres below. Guests can choose between abseiling down or taking the Flying Fox zip line. If you opt for the latter, you will glide from a specially constructed starting platform down a 200-metre steel cable.

The moment before the final leap can be pretty daunting for the majority of visitors, but it is always worth it in the end. A few seconds later and you will be enjoying the incredible experience of flying down Europe's longest zip line. The canopy roof tour is also available without this adventurous extra.
