Architect: Werner March

Werner Julius March (1894 – 1976) was a German architect, son of Otto March, and brother of Walter March, both also well-known German architects. Otto March designed Germany’s 1916 Olympic stadium. Werner March was born in Charlottenburg and died in Berlin.

Address: Olympischer Platz 3, 14053 Berlin, Germany

Capacity: 74,475 (record attendance at time of the Olympics is estimated to be over 100,000, possibly as much as 110,000)

The third-largest football stadium in Germany by capacity. The sports arena is home to the Bundesliga club Hertha BSC, aka the “Old Lady”.

At the ‘end’ of the stadium, aligned with the symmetrically-designed layout of the buildings of the Olympischer Platz and toward the Maifeld, was the Marathon Gate with a big receptacle for the Olympic Flame.
