Countdown to the Games
19-24 June 2022
After six days of competition at the National Games, athletes and officials as well as coaches, volunteers and visitors look back on a great atmosphere with a lot of enthusiasm and a lot of openly shown joy.
We are overwhelmed! A week full of emotions, sports and parties lies behind us. Everyone had their own personal highlights and gained experiences that will be remembered. Let us revel in them together and already look forward to next year's World Games in Berlin.

With temperatures above 30 degrees, cooling down and enough to drink were provided on Day 4 during the sports competitions. And yet there were some particularly hot moments that made the fans' hearts of our athletes beat faster.

One highlight of the National Games was the popular Athletes' Party: volunteers, families, sports officials and, of course, athletes celebrated and danced to great music and with a lot of sunshine at the Brandenburg Gate.
