Description

The Olympiapark in Munich, Germany, was constructed for the 1972 Summer Olympics. Found in the area of Munich known as the "Oberwiesenfeld" ("upper meadow-field"), the Park continues to serve as a venue for cultural, social, and religious events such as events of worship.
The use of the term Olympiapark to designate the overall area has prevailed as a semiofficial practice, but no official name for the entire area exists: Rather, the general area comprises four separate sub-areas:
* Olympic Area: Includes the Olympic sports facilities such as the Olympic Stadium and the Olympic Hall with Olympic Tower. Also in this area are the Olympic Swim Hall and Olympic Event Hall.
* Olympic Village, comprising two villages, one male and one female.
* Olympic Media City ("Pressestadt"), today the home of the Olympic Shopping Center. Strictly speaking, this portion belongs to the area of district of "Moosach."
* Olympic Park: Adjoining the Olympic Area to the south, this park includes the Olympic Mountain and Olympic Lake.

In this view from the visitor hill you can see (from left to the right):
Olympiastadion, Lake with Theatron, Olympiahalle, Swimming stadium, Olympia-Tower. BMW-Museum, BMW-Tower ( "4-Cylinder" )

Stitched from 771 single images; shot on a Canon EOS with Sigma 300 zoom some sunny day in August 2011.
Result was a 8,71 GiB Photoshop.psb-file with 115037x40186 pixel (4.62 gigapixel)
Huge parts of the sky and some areas of the lake were inserted/corrected with Photoshop. Still there are some stitching errors or color mismatches.
