Opposite, the former Schultheiss Am Olympia-Stadion is now the Olympia-Eck, with a lengthy photographic display of the nearby stadium in a cosy, two-room interior. Despite calling itself a ‘bistro’, it remains a classic pre-match bar, with a beer garden attached and a basic kitchen with kiosk outlet.

By another S-Bahn exit, on the corner of Trakehner Allee and Gutsmuthsweg, the Wurstmaxx Biergarten also purveys Berlin’s famous currywurst, sausage in curry sauce.

Inside the stadium, beer is 3% proof Carlsberg – don’t forget the deposit on the glasses.
