Construction work began this week on the site of the memorial located on the western part of Lindenhügel. The Minister of Cultural Affairs, Dr. Ludwig Spaenle, and the Vice Consul General of the State of Israel, Jonathan Glick, visited the site together to see the current state of progress for themselves.

What is presently visible is a construction pit wherein drainage shafts are being laid. Prior to the start of the construction work, extensive tree protection measures had been undertaken. This also pertained to the protection of roots, tree trunks and branches. The construction site has been secured. The Kolehmainenweg can still be used, albeit on a smaller surface area.

While excavating the construction site, workers found remnants of a bomb from World War II; this is proof that the ground beneath the surface will have to be handled with a great deal of care. In addition, remnants of a foundation were also unearthed, indicating that a building may have stood on the site prior to the Olympic Games. Investigations carried out by the responsible state construction authority in Munich (Staatliches Bauamt München II) suggest that a restaurant might have been located on the spot during the summer games of 1972.

The initial construction work on the memorial will presumably be concluded by the end of 2016. Based on the current planning, the construction is projected to be finally completed by the early summer of 2017.
