In Munich, around and about: The Roofs may be pitching its tents primarily in Olympiapark, but that doesn't mean that the competition routes in the city and the surrounding area are lacklustre. Where there's cycling, running and race walking, there's also partying. You can also look forward to a tailor-made supporting programme at Odeonsplatz, in Fürstenfeldbruck, Landsberg am Lech, and Murnau a. Staffelsee.


Drum roll, please! Hardly anyone could have staged the routes of the road bike races more beautifully. The race starts in Murnau a. Staffelsee for the men and in Landsberg am Lech for the women, and goes past Bavarian postcard idylls, right into the heart of Munich with the finish at Odeonsplatz. Who better to accompany the dramatic climax than brass bands and drum groups? A real energy boost for the final sprint of the professionals and the final applause of the audience! The marathon will also be filled with life: the ten-kilometre loop through the city centre promises sightseeing of a different kind. At Friedensengel and Gärtnerplatz there will be drums to your ears, in addition to your cheers.



A monastery setting for the individual time trial in cycling: a novelty for some of the pros. But when were you in the Fürstenfeldbruck monastery last? We hereby give you a few extra reasons to explore the area (again). Top-class sport - a matter of fact at a European championship. Great activities and competitions by regional exhibitors - check. Beergarden with delicacies and brass band music - you'll feel like swaying to the music. And while you're here, how about a spontaneous guided tour of the monastery? Free of charge and tailored to children and adults! The museum offers even more culture and history. In keeping with the 50th anniversary year of the 1972 Summer Olympics, there is a special exhibition, a free guided tour is included. For the little ones we have free activities set up in the children's workshop on said exhibition, “Olympia 1972”. Under the guidance of our museum educators, children between the ages of 5 and 12 can try out different Olympic disciplines or create Olympic fashion based on the colour spectrum of "Waldi", the famous mascot of the 1972 Olympic Games. It's definitely worth a visit!
