Olympic Games Host Cities List

This compilation presents the cities that have hosted the Olympic Games, encompassing both the summer and winter editions, from the commencement of the modern Olympics in 1896. The Games are usually organized within a four-year interval known as an Olympiad, with alternating summer and winter events taking place in even-numbered years.

Across 21 cities, there have been 29 Summer Olympic Games and 24 Winter Olympic Games. Additionally, conflicts led to the cancellation of three summer and two winter editions: Berlin (summer) in 1916, Sapporo–Garmisch-Partenkirchen (winter) and Tokyo–Helsinki (summer) in 1940, and Cortina d’Ampezzo (winter) and London (summer) in 1944.

The 1906 Intercalated Olympics in Athens were initially recognized, but the International Olympic Committee (IOC) later revoked their recognition in 1949. Notably, the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo were postponed to 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with the 2022 Winter Olympics following in Beijing just six months later.
