The Basics

Ride the high-speed elevator to the top floor of the Olympic Tower at 623 feet (190 meters), from where the views span the city center. On a clear day, it’s possible to see the distant Alps, all the way from Salzkammergut to the Allgäu. One floor down, Restaurant 81 is an atmospheric spot for a lunch or dinner date, affording 360-degree panoramic views from its revolving restaurant floor. While at the top of the tower, be sure to check out the small rock ‘n’ roll museum, which holds the title of ‘Europe’s highest rock museum’ and is crammed with music memorabilia, instruments, and stage costumes.

Munich’s Olympic Park and Around It’s worth combining a visit to the Olympic Tower with a stroll around the Olympic Park, a huge landscaped park with lakes, walking and cycling paths, and various sporting venues. Time your visit for the annual Tollwood Festival, attend one of the summer open-air concerts in the park, or hire a paddle boat on the Olympic Lake. Also at the park is SEA LIFE® Munich, a popular family attraction where you can spot sharks, sea turtles, and tropical fish. At the north end of the park is the BMW Museum, where motor enthusiasts can marvel over everything from vintage Rolls-Royces to classic MINIs.
