Event highlights in the Westerwald

European ceramics market at Höhr-Grenzhausen

Every first weekend in June the market attracts around 150 exhibitors from all over Europe who display everyday and ornamental ceramics, genuine salt-glazed stoneware, unusual clay pipes, ceramic jewellery and countless other ceramic creations.

Cultural Fun in Hachenburg

Hachenburg has the reputation of being the cultural heartland of the Westerwald region. The town is home to many events and initiatives throughout the year, like the Hachenburg Cultural Circle, children' concerts, a children's opera and the Marienstatt Music Circle.

The "Hachenburg Kultur Zeit" (Hachenburg Cultural Time) has been a guarantee for outstanding entertainment with open-air concerts, cabaret and various festivals for over 20 years. 

"Treffpunkt Alter Markt" is a series of concerts held annually every Thursday from June to August on the Old Market Square, covering all genres from pop to hip-hop, jazz and swing.

Waldbreitbach Christmas Village

The Christmas Village in Waldbreitbach in the Wied valley attracts visitors from the end of November to the end of January. Visit the world's largest natural root crib in the parish church. The "Gustel's Crib and Bible World" crib museum attracts visitors with 2,200 nativity scenes from all over the world. Other attractions include the floating advent wreath on the Wied, the Advent Calendar House, the Christmas Pyramid, life-size wooden figures, the carillon and the open-air nativity scene. Two Nativity Trails are perfect for a crisp, wintry hike.

Cycling Days out in the Westerwald Region

One of the most popular cycling days out is held in the Westerwald when the roads are closed to motorised traffic. Cyclists, hikers and in-line skaters can then enjoy a special experience in the countryside combined with a range of exciting events along the route. 

Selected events:

  • "Fahr zur Aar" Ride between Diez and Taunusstein-Bleidenstadt
  • "WIEDer ins Tal" Ride through the Wied Valley from Neuwied-Niederbieber to Seifen
  • "Gelbachtag" Ride from Montabaur to Weinähr
