After an exciting week of competitions, we are looking forward to the closing ceremony in front of the Brandenburg Gate on 25 June.
Torch Run
The Torch Run is a Games tradition that celebrates and inspires community pride and excites people about the world-class festival of sports and culture to come.

The Special Olympics Flame of Hope will be ignited in Athens, Greece and transported across Germany before arriving at the Opening Ceremony for the Special Olympics World Games Berlin 2023.
In the photo, many people are running hand in hand. It is the last round of the torch relay.
Enjoy a colorful and diverse program with festival atmosphere in the middle of Berlin, the central meeting point for all participants.
Leading up to the Games, we will raise awareness for inclusive cultural offers and shape the public debate about inclusion in culture.
