Fodor's Review

Berlin's famous sports attraction is the 1936 Olympic Stadium, which received a thorough modernization in 2004. American sprinter Jesse Owens won his stunning four gold medals in 1936; these days, the Berlin Thunder, a mixed nationality team playing American football in the European league, and the local soccer team Hertha BSC are the stars in the arena. The stadium hosted the World Cup soccer final match in July 2006 and served as a spectacular backdrop to the Athletics World Championship in 2009. Different themed tours are offered throughout the year; one option is touring on your own with an audio guide, but only a guided tour will show you the nonpublic areas. Tours in English are offered less frequently, so check the website or call ahead for the schedule.
