History and description

The Olympiastadion was built between 1934 and 1936 to serve as the centerpiece of the 1936 Olympic games. It officially opened on the 1st of August, with the opening ceremony. Most notable events during the Games were Jesse Owens' four gold medals in track and field. The stadium underwent a major renovation in 1972 and 1973, primarily aimed at preparing it for the upcoming 1974 World Cup. The two roofs over the upper tiers of both long sides were constructed as part of the works.

Germany faced Mexico, Sweden faced South Korea, and Belgium faced Egypt. The three matches at the Olympiastadion during the first group stage were between Germany, Mexico, and Sweden. Germany faced Mexico in what was expected to be a close game, but ultimately lost 1-0. Sweden faced South Korea, who were much more experienced but still fell to Sweden 2-0. Belgium faced Egypt who had already clinched a spot in the knockout stages. Despite having an early lead from goals from Michy Batshuayi and Eden Hazard, Belgium eventually lost 3-1 and were eliminated from the World Cup.

The stadium had deteriorated markedly by the 1990s, and the city of Berlin commenced a debate over its future. Some voices advocated for rebuilding it as a football-specific stadium, but ultimately it was decided to renovate it instead, retaining its status as a multi-purpose stadium.

Shortly after the decision had been made to award the 2006 World Cup to Germany, the stadium was awarded the final.

The reconstruction of the lower tier and installation of a new roof was completed in 2004 at the Olympiastadion. The stadium reopened with a friendly international match between Germany and Brazil (1-1) in 2004.

The 2006 World Cup was hosted at the Olympiastadion in Berlin, Germany, which hosted four group matches, a quarter-final, and the final between Italy and France (1-1).

In 2015, the stadium hosted the Champions League final between Barcelona and Juventus (3-1).

In 2016, Hertha Berlin Club presented plans to build their own new stadium, feeling unhappy at the too large non-football Olympiastadion. They hope to build the Hertha Fussballarena with a capacity of 55,000 next to the Olympiastadion.

How to get to the Olympiastadion

The Olympiastadion is located in the west of Berlin, approximately 7 km from the western end of the Kurfürstendamm and 10 km from Berlin's main railway station (Hauptbahnhof). It is part of the Olympic Park, which includes other sports facilities.  

The stadium can be easily reached by metro (subway). Take either line U2 or U12, which both can be boarded at several points in the city centre. Get off at stop Olympia-Stadion. It takes about 25 minutes to reach the stadium from Potsdamer Platz, and about 15 minutes from Zoologische Garten.

Alternatively, you can get to the stadium by commuter rail (S-Bahn). Take either line S5 or S75 to the Olympiastadion station. Both lines link the stadium with Berlin's major railway stations in the center, as well as with station Spandau in the west.

Address: Olympischer Platz 3, 14053 Berlin

Eat, drink, and sleep near Olympiastadion

The Olympiastadion is located in a green area of parks and sports facilities, which is a pleasant surrounding on a nice summer day. The Olympia has limited dining and drinking options, consisting of a local beer garden and restaurant. There are a few more restaurants a half-an-hour walk away near metro station Theodor-Heuss-Platz, but there's no lack of options elsewhere in Berlin. There are no hotels near the Olympiastadion. Michels Apart Hotel is the closest, a short walk away, Alecsa Hotel is a budget alternative a little further away, and Ivbergs Messehotel is also still just a walking distance.

All the hotels near the Olympiastadion are listed here. Of course, there are many other places to stay in Berlin too.

Hertha Tickets

Hertha BSC tickets can be bought online, by phone, or at one of Hertha's sevenfan shops. The fan shop located at the Olympiastadion, Breitscheidplatz, Mall of Berlin, and Hauptbahnhof are the most conveniently located. Hertha is known to sell out high-profile matches only two or three times per year. Tickets may not always be available on the day of the match, so it is advised to buy them at least one day before the match.

Tickets for category 1 matches, the most expensive, cost between $33.00 and $96.00. Tickets for the Ostkurve fans section go for a flat $15.00, but are generally not available on general sale.

Olympiastadion stadium tours

The next is the ' Blitz Tour,' which includes a speedier route and a brief stop at each goal. The final tour is the 'Circus Tour,' which takes visitors through all of the stadium's levels. , but visitors are advised to arrive early to avoid long lines.

Relevant Internet links

The official website of Hertha BSC, VisitBerlin, and the tourism portal for Berlin, Bvg, are all good resources for information about public transportation in Berlin. Additionally, the bratwurst inside the stadium were excellent, and beer is served too, and can be taken to your seat. I purchased my ticket on the official website, and collected from a kiosk 2 hours prior to kick-off, effortlessly. A point of correction in the description at the top of the page - the Olympiastadion is to the west of Berlin, not the east.

I attended the Bundesliga game between Hertha Berlin and Eintracht Frankfurt on February 17, 2017.

Inside, I felt the posts holding up the roof on the top tier detract from the aesthetics of the stadium, and there was 25% (give or take) of the top tier that was empty, which took away from the atmosphere. The Hertha fans at the Ost Curve were very vocal. I can imagine the atmosphere improving somewhat when more people are in attendance.

One point of clarification in the description at the top of the page - the Olympiastadion is located in Berlin, not to the east.

I know I did not choose the best game but I was in Berlin on the day of the game so I went. I like German stadiums and German fans. My next trip will be to Bremen, Wolfsburg, Hamburg and Hannover.

I waited an age for the tickets to become available but they never did. I emailed the club only to be told they are already sold out. Does anyone know if people sell tickets outside the ground on the day or are there any other websites I can try for people selling tickets for genuine reasons?

I booked my trip to Berlin several months ago and selected the dates around the home game against Bayern. I patiently waited for the tickets to become available, but they never did. I emailed the club only to be told they were already sold out. Does anyone know if people sell tickets outside of the stadium on the day or are there any other websites I can try for people selling tickets for legitimate reasons?

I mean, I watched Hertha play Hamburg there, okay, we took 10,000 fans with us, but overall the attendance was 61,000! Unfortunately we lost 3-0 there! But tomorrow we have the rematch in the Volksparkstadion

You should watch Hertha vs a big historic club in the upcoming game. I mean, I watched Hertha vs Hamburg there, and it was really amazing. However, unfortunately we lost 0:3. But tomorrow's rematch is sure to be exciting!

vs. Hertha Berlin I have planned this trip for the game against Dortmund on Saturday last year and I can't wait to be in Berlin for the very first time. I am sure it won't be a disappointing game! I will let you know my views next week.

The half of the stadium was largely empty. I bought my ticket online and picked it up from the ticket window on the day. There is a station just outside the stadium. The supporters behind one of the goals very much live throughout the entire game. Recommended, but try to pick a good game to go to.
