Single-Day Trip: Olympic Games

Are you looking for a special tour off the beaten track? On this small-group tour with an experienced and certified guide, explore the fascinating venue of the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin and learn about the exciting and controversial history of these Games. You will be sure to discover interesting facts about the games (which were the first to have live television coverage!), the stadium, visit the Olympic village, and admire the views of the city from the bell tower.

 

The air-conditioned VW minibus will stop at the Lustgarten by the Berlin Cathedral, where 70,000 people watched the lighting of the Olympic flame. Continue along the “Via Triumphalis” and follow the circular route of road race events to the Olympic village in Elstal, on the Western edge of Berlin. In addition to visiting the athletes‘ accommodation and administrative buildings, you can join a guided tour of the buildings (upon request). Retrace the steps of track and field legend Jesse Owens, who won 4 gold Olympic medals. Follow another cycling route to reach the highlight of the tour, the Reich Sports Field, which consisted of the Olympic Stadium, the Dietrich Eckart Open-Air Theatre, the Olympic swimming stadium, Mayfield, the hockey stadiums, the tennis courts, and the House of German Sports. Luckily, only a few of the buildings on this spectacular site were destroyed during the war, therefore climb to the top of the 77-meter high bell tower and admire the amazing views of the city!
