Notes on Visits: 

Built on the site which hosted the 1972 Olympics, the tower offers extensive views over the city from its suburban location. It dominates the Olympic Park, towering over the Bayern Munich football stadium. Also, from the observation deck, there is an excellent view of the adjacent humongous BMW plant. I was fortunate enough to once visit on a clear day where, looking southwards, on the horizon was visible the foothills of the Alps. Easy access by road or the S-Bahn/U-Bahn trains.

Views from tower to be added soon...
