Perfect for family & friends – this year again, gamescom offers exciting games and lots of fun for the young and the old(er). In the "family & friends" area you can prove your skills at the provided game consoles or let off steam by being part of the human table soccer.
We are also proud to present our special show „retro gaming" again, this year taking place on 1,600 square metres – which means it’s even bigger, more versatile and also cooler than ever. You can look forward to over 200 game consoles, home computers and machines from four decades, plus lectures, interviews and music shows on stage. In addition to focuses such as the Zelda exhibition or consoles with Pokémon motifs, legendary exhibitors such as the original Factor 5 team will also be taking part.
You feel like having a ball? No problem whatsoever! The evangelical youth from Cologne and the surrounding area provides everything that gets you and gamescom moving. Show what you got when it comes to soccer, test your coordination on the Daffy boards or give it all on our bungee run.
The youngest visitors can paint, do handicrafts or play in the "juniors' club" together with trained supervisors. Please note that only children 4 years and older are allowed at gamescom. Children up to 11 years of age may only enter the exhibition grounds if accompanied by an adult.
Look forward to fun and excitement for the whole family! You can find more information on the family and friends area here .
