The Olympiapark in Munich, Germany, is an Olympic Park which was constructed for the 1972 Summer Olympics. Found in the area of Munich known as the "Oberwiesenfeld" ("upper meadow-field"), the Park continues to serve as a venue for cultural, social, and religious events such as events of worship.
The use of the term Olympiapark to designate the overall area has prevailed as a semiofficial practice, but no official name for the entire area exists: Rather, the general area comprises four separate sub-areas:
Olympic Area: Includes the Olympic sports facilities such as the Olympic Stadium and the Olympic Hall with Olympic Tower. Also in this area are the Olympic Swim Hall and Olympic Event Hall.
Olympic Village, comprising two villages, one male and one female.
Olympic Media City ("Pressestadt"), today the home of the Olympic Shopping Center. Strictly speaking, this portion belongs to the area of district of "Moosach."
Olympic Park: Adjoining the Olympic Area to the south, this park includes the Olympic Mountain and Olympic Lake.
The park is located in the modern skyline near BMW and the "Uptown" skyscraper of O2.
