Agree with you about Munichs Olympic park. It's a fantastic place. It's such a vibrant living public space, a great testament to the work done for 72. Here's a photo from my trip there in 2011, spen

So, we already had this kind of thread... but here we go again : Olympic Host cities visited : - Athens (before, during & after the 2004 Games) - Paris - London (before, during & after the

Be interesting to find out what Olympic host cities everyone has visited (especially for some of our newer members), but almost more importantly - what Olympic host city you would most like to visit,

Let's see...apart from living in Munich...in order of (first) host year:

Athens

Antwerp

Amsterdam

Ga-Pa

Berlin

Helsinki

Cortina

Innsbruck

Mexico City

Montreal

Calgary

Barcelona

Vancouver (and Whistler)

Forgot to add which ones I'd like to visit:

Oslo & Lillehammer (currently considering a Norway trip next year)

Stockholm

Turin (have a work colleague from there)

St Moritz, as it's close and easy to tick off

At one point also the triumvirate of Rome/Paris/London, but somehow not that interested right now

Sydney/Melbourne...one day Australia needs to be visited :-)

Sydney/Melbourne...one day Australia needs to be visited :-)

If you visit Melbourne, come and watch an event at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground, home of the 1956 Olympics and 2006 Commonwealth Games. Pay visit to the National Sports Museum, located on level 3 of the Northern Stand, it has an Olympic exhibit which has Australia's collection of Olympic torches.

I went to the Museum and the MCG Open Day last Sunday, it was great!

I've been to seven cities, mostly Europeans with the exception of Seoul. I would like to go to Rome and Athens mainly for their historical importance. Sydney and LA appeal to me as cosmopolitan world cities. Munich is probably the city that I would visit mainly because of the Olympic heritage as I don't find it very interesting otherwise. Had a flight connection at MUC last year though.

I guess this could be updated now that I have visited Rome.

London (attended the games and went inside the main stadium).

Saw the stadium at least from outside:

Berlin

Stockholm

Helsinki

Seoul

Barcelona

Visited the cities but didn't see anything important related to the Olympic theme:

Paris

Rome

I have still not been to any winter host city.

Just the host cities in western North America:

1. LA

2. Squaw Valley

3. Salt Lake City

4. Calgary - live here

5. Vancouver - only games I've attended

With LA and Salt Lake, it was just mainly driving thru on vacation; either going to Disneyland or driving back to Calgary thru Salt Lake City. I usually swing by Squaw Valley if I'm in the Reno area. Hoping to ski at Squaw Valley one day and do this...

In terms of the Olympic sites i'd most like to see Sarajevo. Just the remnants of the olympic venues. See the podium where executions took place during the Sarajevo siege.

Athens as well to see the abandoned sites.
