Since the Olympics in Munich 1972, the Olympiapark has had countless visitors walking through the park and spending their free time at it, for free of course. But there are also concerts, cultural, sports and other events regularly taking place at one of the most popular parks of the City. At a few sights, like the Olympic Tower (Fersehturm), you have to pay for entrance if you want to get to the observation platform at a height of 190 meters per lift.
Ursula Pötsch and her daughters Valentina and Sophie from Bad Reichenhall wanted to do exactly that, when they were surprised by Olympiapark officials and the third Mayor of Munich, Christine Strobl. Mother Ursula was visitor was post-Olympic visitor number two hundred million at the park. 127.5 million of them have visited concerts and sports events, while 87.5 million people visited some of the other attractions. "Munich is pleased with the great appeal of the Olympic Park and its worldwide reputation", congratulated Christine Strobl. Ursula received season tickets to Sea Life and a restaurant coupon as gifts.
