This stadium is well known in all the world. It was built by Nazi for the Olympics of 1936. It's famous for its propaganda use, for the victory of Jesse Owens, to be filmed by Leni Riefenstahl as the first fully world filmed Olympics in the history.

After the war the name of Hitler was cancelled from the marble and the stadium became the headquarters of the British military occupation forces.

It has been fully renewed and it was used for the FIFA World Cup 2006.The conservation factor of the Olympiastadion as a historical monument was also considered, especially with respect to the preservation of the natural stone blocks.
