Das Olympiastadion is a sports stadium in Berlin, originally built for the 1936 Summer Olympics. During the Olympics, the record attendance was thought to be 100,000+. Since renovations in 2004, it has a permanent capacity of 74,475 and is the largest stadium in Germany for international football matches. It’s a UEFA category 4 and one of the world’s most prestigious venues for sporting and entertainment events. Since 1963, it has been home to the Hertha BSC football team. DFB-Pokal (German Cup) final matches are held here annually.
