The stadium is very subdued - I was surprised at how small it was but the Nazi architectural elements were clearly visible in the statuary. Our visit was in July but a group of three jumpers were practicing that afternoon. There is a small museum tucked away on the east side of the grandstand, which was very nice -- albeit... More

When going to Garmisch-Partenkirchen this is a must visit. The majestic Stadium is very impressive and has statues and the arena is wonderful. The views of the Alps are stunning too and the Stadium is within walking distance of the Twin Towns.

If you plan to hike the Partnach Gorge, consider visiting the Olympic Ski Stadium as well. It's open to the public (usually), and in the winter you can watch skiers practicing..Also worth a visit is the exhibition (3 euros) detailing the construction and use of the area for the 1936 Winter Olympics--entitled "The Dark Side of the Medal", with exhibits...

Stumbled upon this heading for a hike and got lucky that someone was doing ski-jump practices. Neat to see the history and that it's still in use.

Awesome afternoon. Walk into the stadium; left untouched since 1936 and feel the history. Sit in the outdoor restaurant and have a beer. We took the 1934 built gondolas up the mountain and hiked for 4 hours. Great paths, lakes, and a few restaurants up on the hiking trails.

Ski jumps a plenty, including some of the very biggest. Café at the bottom serves traditional food and drink in nice warm surroundings. If you are into movies, then you may like to know this is where the recent Eddie the Eagle film was made.

It was really neat seeing were they held the Olympics. They have a huge ski slope there. They were also doing zip lining that looked fun.

I have never seen anything like this before so was struck at the scale of the ski jumps - absolutely huge! I loved seeing the old photographs of when the jumps were actually in use for the Olympics and can o let imagine how great the atmosphere must have been at the time. We took the cable cars up the...

Not bad to visit ,of interest to history/sports buffs but dull enough for the average tourist .the Restaurant and bar are very cosy and traditional with the usual Bavarian fayre.

This park is vast and there are many attractions that evolved. You can go to the tower and have amazing view of the city, also a nice rock museum up there. The swimming pool and the hockey dome are open but we wasn't there. The BMW complex and museum is near so it may be a good time to all
