Taking place this year from 2 to 5 March, the Special Olympics in Inzell are Germany's winter games for people with intellectual disabilities. Taking place in over 170 countries, this is the biggest sports movement of its kind in the world. Over 800 athletes will attend the German Special Olympics in 2015, taking part in eight sports on a non-competitive basis. Alongside the sporting action there'll be a comprehensive programme for families and athletes, plus of course the opening and closing ceremonies.
Inzell, located at the foot of the Bavarian Alps, has a beautiful landscape of mountains and lakes, crystal-clear streams and lush Alpine meadows, and is a habitat for all kinds of wildlife. So for nature lovers and active holidaymakers, summer is as good a time to visit as winter.
