Berlin - Olympiastadion
A view of the Olympiastadion in Berlin

The venue for the 1936 Olympics has been renovated at a cost of 165m and, 70 years on, will host another global sporting spectacular on 9 July.

After five games, one a quarter-final, it will host the World Cup final.

Hertha Berlin played the first match at their new-look, 76,000-capacity Olympiastadion in July 2004.

The national team have played there once since - a 1-1 draw against Brazil - and will be hoping to return in July for another World Cup win on home turf.
