“Take a tour anyway”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

This is one of the places you have to visit in Berlin. What you should do is join the tour because you can visit at the places where you can not go by yourself like VIP seat, inside changing room, warm-up area, chapel and some other places. If you want to get everything about the tour you should understand germany because they don't do tour in english, but it was worth of just hanging around the group. But with general admission fee you will get the spirit. Stadium itself is massive and you can feel strange atmosphere from old times. Also diving pool was nice to see.

“A piece of athletic history”
Reviewed 25 July 2014 via mobile

I did the self-guided tour with a friend. The place was massive and oozed history, but I didn't get the full experience because there weren't many tablets explaining the history of the stadium. I would suggest paying the extra money to take a guided tour with the tour guide. You can go into the seating of the stadium and there was a room with a lot equipment from the past. It was unclear if they were the authentic batons, shotput ball, etc in the olympics because there was nothing explaining it. It wasn't worth it to just get general admission and it was very far out of the centre of Berlin. If you do decide to make the voyage, get the tour.

“Olympic Stadium”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

This is a self guided tour for about 5 Euros with the Berlin Welcome Card discount. This will be good if you are interested in the stadium and history about it. Just check its opening days before you travel as they do hold events as well as matches there so days and times can vary. There is also a public pool which I wasn’t aware of until I got there, it seemed to have mainly kids in the pool diving off the boards. So if you are a family or on a school trip this could be something to look into. Tranport wise it is very easy to get to using the U2 (red line) towards Ruhleben taking about 30 minutes from the Alexanderplatz/museum island area. I suggest you plan for aprox 2 hours to walk around the stadium.

“Feel the History”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

Visit this stadium and grounds in Berlin, used for the 1936 Olympic Games. It has a strange atmosphere of a dark past, but is a must see in Berlin.

“Deserted History to Explore”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

Seeing a Jesse Owens Allee in this Berlin suburb outside the stadium reflects how interesting these olympic games were. You can feel the races & competition "going on" while touring the grounds. Eerie witnessing the Nazi architecture (esp. standing by the cauldron where Hitler spoke), but extremely fascinating at the same time. Easy S-Bahn access, & a good way to get away from the busy city.
