The Berlin Olympic Stadium, designed by Werner March, was built in 1934-36 for the XI Summer Olympics in 1936. It replaced the German Stadium, built on the same site in 1913 by Otto March (Werner March's father). The stadium is the focal point of the "Reichssportfeld (Imperial Sports Field), which embraces a large number of other facilities.

The stadium itself is only 16.5m/54ft high, but the field is 12m/40ft below ground level.

In Germany school, from the age of 6 through 14, is mandatory, and in public state-run school's, it's free. The school system in Germany is a little different than it's American counterpart. All children enter in the same program, but at the age of 10, they go to one of four types of schools.
