Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
Owner description: The attraction in Munich where happiness and adrenaline unite. Fly across the whole Olympic stadium and enjoy the spectacular view. Walking on the roof of the stadium with the unique view over Munich is the first highlight of the tour. Jump over your shadow and learn to fly. The flying fox has a length of about 200 meters and a height of ca. 40 meters. When you arrive at the flying fox station the guides will give you the safety instructions and you receive the safety equipment. Accompanied by a guide you will climb up the roof of the Olympic stadium till you get to the start platform of the flying fox. In about 40 meters height you jump of the platform and fly to the other side of the stadium. It is an adventure you will keep in mind.

“Definitely worth trying!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013

Not only you can walk on the transparent roof of the Olympic stadium in Munich, with a great view of the Olympic park and the city itself, not only you get interesting info about the 1972 Olympics, the stadium, the roof and its design/build phase, at the end, you have a chance to fly over the stadium! The flight takes about 50 seconds and is really fun, safe and well organized by the guides.

“Awesome and worth doing again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2013

The guides are fantastic and spoke in excellent English to my son and husband who don't speak German. They chatted to my eleven year old as he had to wait to be pulled across at the end of the zip wire and everything was very professional and safe. Both of them are keen to do it again and I would thoroughly recommend it, with or without the roof tour.

“Walk on the roof of a high tech tent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2013

We arranged a company outing. Wanted to do something active but also connected to Munich and it's history. The Flying fox was the perfect choice. We had some serious vertigo sufferers, but the confident animation of the guides and the professional climbing equipment securing us to the guide chains gave everyone the confidence to climb up the ladders and walk the narrow causways above this architectural marvel. The guide's interesting commentary on the history of the olympic area (dump for wartime building rubble of which the hills are made), the architectural concepts embodied in the single anchored tent design and the wonderful view to the Alps in the south all contributed to a memorable experience. That it is concluded by a zip line ride across the arena's hallowed turf to a platform on the other side was the absolute best finish imaginable. Afterwards we went to the BMW museum and ate in it's restaurant. All round a fantastic day and highly recommended to groups of all ages.
