If Corona permits: special trains to the "Land & Genuss" trade fair

If the pandemic situation in the spring permits, there will again be special trains in March 2022 that will take guests from Waldeck-Frankenberg - directly and without transfers - to the "Land und Genuss" adventure fair, which will be held for the first time next year in Gießen instead of Frankfurt. Reservations are now possible.

After a two-year break, the fair is to open its doors again from March 18 to 20. On Saturday, March 19 and Sunday, March 20, there will again be special trains that start in Korbach and take interested people to Gießen to the Genussmesse. The trains will depart from Korbach main station at 10 a.m. and return from Giessen-Oswaldsgarten at 4:57 p.m. on both days.

Within the framework of the fair, which will take place under the current Corona rules, regional and national suppliers will present high-quality, handcrafted products and services. Guests can sample and shop there to their heart's content - and travel easily and comfortably on the special trains organized by the North Hesse Transport Association (NVV) together with the Kurhessenbahn and the district. They will also be escorted from the train station to the exhibition grounds and back again.

The aim of this special excursion offer is also to draw attention to the good connections of the NVV in the direction of southern Hesse. "The visit to the Genussmesse is a very good example of what the railroad gap closure between Korbach and Frankenberg has made possible in terms of excellent opportunities for leisure activities by bus and train for the citizens of Waldeck-Frankenberg. For this, I would also like to thank District Administrator Dr. Reinhard Kubat once again, who has worked tirelessly for the reactivation of the connection and helped make this decision of the century possible," says NVV Managing Director Steffen Müller.

The number of participants per special trip is limited to 220 people. Therefore, the ride is only possible with registration. "So that people with limited mobility can also make good use of the offer, low-floor vehicles will be used on both days," reports Jens Wrabletz of the Kurhessenbahn, who is very pleased that the action will take place again next year after the Corona-related break, if Corona will allow it.

"The experience fair offers the best that direct marketers have to offer throughout Hesse," says District Administrator Dr. Reinhard Kubat. "I am proud that many producers from Waldeck-Frankenberg will again participate with their products." He added that the campaign had been planned at the present time - in the hope that Corona would allow it in the spring. "However, changes are reserved depending on how the Corona situation will develop until March. As of now, however, the trains are running as planned, he said.

The district of Waldeck-Frankenberg is also represented at the fair with its specialist agricultural service with a campaign stand under the motto "Taste and feel good". Whether regional meat products, savory delicacies or sweet delicacies: Selected regional products from various directly marketing farms in Waldeck-Frankenberg will be presented there. With a selection of excellent quality products of the direct marketers from the district - regional, organic and seasonal - the diversity of the Waldeck-Frankenberg region is to be presented.

"Anyone who is interested can already reserve a place on the special trains," adds honorary district councillor and head of department for direct marketing and consumer protection Friedrich Schäfer and cordially invites people to take advantage of the offer. The costs of train ticket and fair entrance together amount to 16,20 euro for persons starting from 13 years. Children between six and twelve years pay only the train ticket of 7.20 euros and children up to five years are completely free.
