Berlin Futbol (soccer) Stadium

Olympic Stadium

If you are a futbol/soccer lover (like the majority of Germans), without question you must visit the Olympic stadium of Berlin, or at least take a photograph of the stadium and landscape.

This colossus structure was constructed in record time, just under 2 years, just in time for the controversial Olympic summer games of 1936, when Adolf Hitler was already beginning to show his hunger for power. This was one of the first events ever televised, and which the nazi party took complete advantage by marketing Germany’s propaganda of strength and greatness in front of the entire world.

As a matter fact, in these Olympics, Germany was the country that won the most medals, but the real hero was the African American Jesse Owens, winner of 4 gold medals that year.
