The 1936 Winter Olympics, officially known as the IV Olympic Winter Games, were a winter multi-sport event which was celebrated in 1936 in the market town of Garmisch-Partenkirchenmarker in Bavariamarker, Germanymarker. Germany also hosted the Summer Olympics the same year in Berlinmarker. 1936 is the last year in which the Summer and Winter Games were both held in the same country (the cancelled 1940 games would have been held in Japanmarker, with that country likewise hosting the Winter and Summer games).

The 1936 Winter Olympics were organized on behalf of the Sports Office of the Third Reich (DRL) by Karl Ritter von Halt. Von Halt had been named President of the Committee for the organization of the Fourth Winter Olympics in Garmisch by Reichssportführer Hans von Tschammer und Osten.
