It is Day 3 of the National Games and we are looking forward to exciting sports competitions, a lot of fun at the Non-Competitive Sports Offer, the popular Athletes’ Party at Brandenburger Tor and more. An overview of the day's highlights can be found here.


  • With the exception of triathlon (on Friday), all our sports are in full swing.
  • The last chance to visit is in powerlifting, kayaking and swimming.
  • The Non-Competitive Sports Offer is open for all visitors at Olympiapark and Neptunbrunnen.
  • A big celebration takes place at Brandenburg Gate with the highly anticipated Athletes' Party.

How fast time flies when you are having fun! We have already reached the middle of the event week and today almost all sports are once again in full swing. Only the competitions in triathlon will be held on Friday.

The last chance for a visit is in powerlifting, kayaking and swimming. Here, the last finals, medal decisions and award ceremonies are already taking place today. The exact schedules can be found here.

The photo shows a young girl at the competition free offer. She is sitting on a wooden horse and smiling towards the side.

For all visitors who feel inspired and also want to be active, there is the Non-Competitive Sports Offer. It is open to all people, whether with or without disabilities, and the fun of movement is the main focus.

All 16 stations can be discovered at the August-Bier-Plätze on the grounds of the Olympiapark and a smaller selection can be found at the Special Olympics Festival next to Neptunbrunnen. More information and the opening hours are available here.

And tonight we are especially excited about the popular Athletes' Party. The big celebration takes place directly at the Brandenburg Gate and we are looking forward to dance with athletes, volunteers, families and sports officials. See you on the dance floor!

For last-minute visitors, tickets are still available for purchase online or on site at our competition venues.
