olympiapark4OlympiaparkThe Olympic Park, around for 40 years, is a focal point for sports activities. Whether you're a spectator or an active participant, it will take a long time to exhaust all the sporting possibilities on offer here. The Olympiahalle swimming complex has much more to offer than just swimming -- you can work up a sweat body-building, running or doing gymnastics. Next door, you can ice-skate on a fabulous ice rink all year round. For more twists and turns, try the Gesundheitspark, where some 20-30 events are held daily to keep you fit in mind and body.

bike2Munich with its many sights in and around the city is a biker’s paradise. Some 18 routes radiate like spokes on a wheel from the city center in all directions. Route planning maps can be obtained from the tourist information office. Munich has 700 kilometers of bike paths altogether. The ADFC, Germany’s association for cyclists, offers cycle holidays on the Euro Bike Bus and cycle tours across Greater Munich at the weekends or on weekday evenings. The club also helps with questions on bike maintenance and offers regular courses at its headquarters on Platenstraße.
