At a height of 190 m (620 ft) there is an observation platform as well as a small rock and roll museum housing various memorabilia, which is signposted as "Rock Museum" outside the entrance. Since its opening in 1968, the tower has registered over 35 million visitors (as of 2004). At a height of 182 m (597 ft) there is a revolving restaurant, which seats 230 people. A full revolution takes 53 minutes. The tower also serves as a broadcast tower, and has one Deutsche Telekom maintenance elevator with a speed of 4 m/s (13 ft/s), as well as two visitor lifts with a speed of 7 m/s (23 ft/s) which have a capacity of about 30 people per car. The travel time is about 30 seconds. The tower is open daily from 09:00 to 24:00.

There is a concept of making Virtual Reality weather timelapse service from Olympiaturm. In case it were implemented, it would become the first tower worldwide with such function.

  • We had the chance to visit the Olympiatrum on a rock-blues concert of Blues Busters - musicians on our age of 60. Very good!  more »
  • A really nice experience with the chance to see all the surrounding scenery because the tower is the highest structure around. If you visit after dark, you get to see the city lights and the Allianz.....  more »

  • This is "must see" in Munich. The view is great, you can see nearby the BMW museum, Olympia Stadium, Olympia Park and the entire city. It is the tallest building in Munich. You can also take dinner there, as they have a rotating restaurant. The entrance fee is reasonable, 11 euro to visit the platform. The elevator reaches up to 7 m/s anf it takes arround 30 seconds to get up to the platform.
  • Views are great, but the rotating restaurant was not living up to the first part of its name for the first 40-50 minutes of our visit. In a fairly empty restaurant we were denied a window seat as we came for coffee and cake rather than lunch but then saw others seated in the window seats for coffee. Left a bad taste in the mouth.
