Set against the beautiful backdrop of the Art Nouveau Spa town of Bad Nauheim. Visitors can look forward to a varied program of outdoor games, board and card games, tournaments and competitions in the bathhouses and on the grounds of the historic Spa Town. Admission is free, as every year.

On Friday this year's Games Festival starts with the music school band workshop which is always well-attended and the first rounds of play begin at 6.00pm. On Saturday and Sunday respectively, the event opens at 10.00am, with the game program for children and parents of the EvA vehicle, and games include the new outdoor football game KICKeT,  cooperative rounds of the real-time group game Captain Sonar - a new interpretation of the classic Battleship - a miniature golf Tournament and many other fun games.
