On our Monumentstour through we came along the Olympic Stadium. In1928 Amsterdam organized the Olympic Games and the Stadium is fortunately still there. A few years ago some real estate entrepeneurs had stupid plans to demolish the stadium and to built houses here. The Amsterdam people revolted and after lots of troubles won the battle.
Architect Andre van Stigt renovated the stadium and it looks as new now and is still in use for football, atletics and cycle racing.
