Town Anniversary 2017
In 2017, we’ll get the party started! Starting with the official opening of our anniversary celebrations on 22 March 2017, our town will be host to an exciting year full of events. One of the highlights will undoubtedly be the 50th Matjeswochen (Matjes season festitivities) in June. In addition, there will be a colourful and multifaceted programme including exhibitions, concerts, art installations, readings, sport events, etc. There is much to explore since numerous locations and monuments still tell the story of the crucial events and defining moments in our town’s 400-year history. There will, however, also be a focus on the town’s recent past and on current issues concerning its future. Participants and citizens already show enormous commitment in preparing and planning the anniversary festivities.
We would like to welcome you to join in when we present our town and its fascinating history. Discover all facets of our life and feel free to share our luck!
