Sport & Spielfest, Darmstadt
Every year, on the last Sunday of June, the sports and games festival (Sport & Spiel Fest) is organized in Herrngarten by the sports department ( Sportamt) of Darmstadt, the sports district( Sportkreis) of Darmstadt-Dieburg, and the main sponsor – The science and technology company Merck. This year (2022), the event is on the 26th of June.
The idea is to provide a platform for all the young and old, active people and beginners to meet, play, and learn new sports and introduce them to new game ideas.
Both commonly known sports and some unique ones never seen or heard before are available to try. Apart from Outdoor sports, indoor games like Chess can also be explored.
More than 15,000 people visit the sports and games festival yearly and have fun around 90 game stations.
Various Sports clubs put up their stalls in Herrngarten. Visitors can try out different sports, collect information about the club (der Verein) that offers these activities, and even enrol if interested. All activities are free of cost.
Apart from that, there are plenty of food stalls too, making it easy to spend an entire day in the garden having fun trying different sports and games. The Sport & Spiel Fest is indeed a great idea and offers a day outdoors, under the sun, to enjoy and learn something new.
If you want to visit, mark the date in your calendar and come to Herrngarten. If you are a part of a sports club (Verein) and would like to put up some sports/games, you can contact the sports department ( Sportamt).
