The Berlin Olympic Stadium was constructed in the 1930s, but has been renovated as recent as 2000. The whopping € 242 million that covered the reconstruction cost is worth the effort since the stadium is now more spectator-friendly.

It has facilities such as VIP and Sky executive boxes, underground warm-up facilities (including a 110m running track and a long jump pit), a Hertha BSC mega store and a spacious underground car park.

Olympiastadion has a history of hosting major sporting events, especially after the famous American sprinter Jesse Owens won four gold medallions at the 1936 Olympics. It has hosted the German Cup Final since 1985.
