Olympiastadion, Berlin

The Olympiastadion is a major sports stadium at Olympiapark Berlin in Germany. It was originally built by Werner March for the 1936 Summer Olympics. During the Olympics, the record attendance was thought to be over 100,000. Today the stadium is part of the Olympiapark Berlin.

Since renovations in 2004, the Olympiastadion has a permanent capacity of 74,475 seats and is the largest stadium in Germany for international football matches.

The Olympiastadion is a UEFA category four stadium and one of the world’s most prestigious venues for sporting and entertainment events. The stadium hosted 6 matches in the FIFA 2006 World cup including the tournament final.

The steel truss roof of Berlin’s Olympic Stadium contains Macalloy tension rods which are used to brace the main structure, while the use of Macalloy’s high strength steel tie bars allowed for a lightweight roof structure.
