Something new in this summer trip to Berlin is that we went to Olympia Stadium (or Olympiastadion in german), for my friend’s love of football. The stadium is in the periphery of the city, and we need take a bus from the S-bahn, and to walk for a while to reach the stadium. The stadium is grandeur, with high pillar gate in its ivory bricks.
There have been two stadia on this site. The first one was called the Deutsches Stadion, was built for the aborted 1916 Summer Olympics, secondly and the present-day facility. Olympiastadion is the second biggest stadium in Germany after Signal Iduna Park. It has been the home stadium of the Hertha Berlin football team since 1963.
The capacity of this ivory stadium reached 110,000 spectators. Quirkly, It also has a special stand for Adolf Hitler and his political associates. At its end was the Marathon Gate with a big receptacle for the Olympic Flame, aligned with the symmetrically-designed layout of the buildings of the Olympischer Platz and toward the Maifeld.
