Deutsches Sport & Olympia Museum

Visitor information


The German Sport & Olympia Museum offers an exciting and emotional journey through the history of sport. Numerous action stations, such as an original goal wall from a German TV station’s sports studio, a bicycle in a wind tunnel or a boxing ring as well as two playgrounds on the roof of the building invite visitors to engage in sporting activities. You can book excellent  guided tours through the exhibition, fun programmes for children's birthday parties as well as sports-based team-building  events. In addition, our museum has a very special atmosphere which enhances events of any kind.

The museum is barrier-free and air-conditioned.
