Built for the 1936 Olympics, where Jesse Owens humiliated the Führer, the Olympiastadion is an architectural and historical landmark in itself. When it was redeveloped for the 2006 World Cup a beautiful job was done of building a 21st century stadium within the haunted shell of a grand monument to national socialism.

Despite the running track (where Usain Bolt proved himself a worthy successor to Owens in the 2009 World Athletics Championships) one can still feel close to the action, though the atmosphere can get lost when it is half full due to its cavernous scale.

For Hertha's home games the Ostkurve is the place to be with the diehard fans and where the noise is at it's most cacophonous.
