The decision to hold the 1972 Olympics in Munich was a boon that helped the city reinvent itself once and for all. During the postwar era, Munich was often referred to as a "metropolis with a heart" and the "secret capital" of West Germany. Today it has established a new identity for itself as a media capital. In the "Chill-Out Loden Lounge," the "Typically Munich!" exhibition shows the city celebrating itself – in a kaleidoscopic collage ranging from the soccer stadium to the beer tents, laptops to leather shorts, and champagne to headcheese.

Themes explored in Arenasaal
