at the FZW

Es gibt ein paar kostenlose Parkplätze direkt hinter dem FZW wie auch auf den anliegenden Straßen Ritterstraße und Übergönne. Der große Parkplatz an der Übelönne ist kostenpflichtig. Bitte beachtet entsprechende Hinweise.
Our own FZW parking spaces can be used on the days of the respective event from Monday to Friday from 7 pm and all day at the weekend. Vehicles parked illegally during the day will be towed away for a fee, as those parking spaces are rented out during the day.

Ab sofort haben wir auch öffentlich zugängliche E-Ladesäulen bei uns am FZW. Während der Ladezeiten können die Ladesäulen jederzeit genutzt werden, es fällt also außer den Stromkosten keine zusätzliche Parkgebühr an, auch wenn tagsüber die Säulen genutzt werden. Unsere Fahrzeuge sind übrigens auch elektrisch :)

Arrival by

by bicycle

The FZW is easy to reach by bike. Bicycle lockers are located directly in front of the main entrance and in front of the vocational college on the other side of the street.

Don’t Drink And Drive!

Even the most beautiful evening comes to an end. Please be sensible and leave your vehicles (also bikes & e-scooters) if you have been drinking. There are usually several taxis waiting outside the FZW to take you home safely and comfortably. If there is no taxi available, we will be happy to call one for you at the box office.
