Fun fact that I (re-)learnt as we were walking up to the entrance; *whispers* Hitler built this stadium. It was built for the 1936 Summer Olympics. I would suggest that he didn't personally build it.
Anyway once we got in (and lied to the security guard about not having any drinks, muahaha you will never take my 500ml of water!), we walked around the outside of the stadium for ages until we got to the Maifeld which is where the event actually was. Our seats were excellent, pretty much right next to the VIP section, which meant we had a really good angle for the fireworks. However, the seats were at the aisle end of the row, which meant getting up for a lot of people. We did go for a walk/ice cream mission in the time that most people would be finding their seats, but still had to do some standing up.
|Those are the cheap seats, quite close to the fireworks (closer than you'd probably want to be, really)|
My favourite *moment* was in the French display, where a song was talking about l'amour and le coeur (love and heart) and there were heart-shaped fireworks! I didn't even know they could do that!!
Overall though, the Netherlands was both of our definite favourite. Unfortunately I didn't take any photos, I was too busy enjoying the spectacle! Here's a video I found of it:
