in town

07th April 2024

The Hanseatic city welcomes spring on 7th April. Between the Great Market and Berlin Gate, tried and tested concepts such as the bicycle action day, Sunday Shopping and the exhibition "Immobilia & Energie" will be inviting visitors to the city centre for the spring festival.

It all starts on the Great Market with everything that makes the hobby gardener's heart beat faster. Various exhibitors will be presenting their products and information. A programme for the whole family and culinary delights invite you to linger. The event continues in the city centre with the fundraising bike auction, which is eagerly awaited every year. There will also be a variety of bike-related offers.

From 1 pm the retailers will open their doors and invite you to go on a springtime shopping afternoon. This makes the start of spring really fun. At Berlin Gate visitors can then look forward to the Immobilia & Energie exhibition organised by Niederrheinische Sparkasse RheinLippe.
