Mineral club sponsors annual fair in Freisen

The Freisen Mineral Club will sponsor its annual mineral fair from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday at the town hall (Buchwaldhalle) in Freisen.

The fair is mainly for all friends of gemstones and mineral collectors.

As always, several exhibitors and sellers from various European countries, as well as from the local area, are participating and presenting their minerals and jewelry.

Visitors can explore the extraordinary exhibition and be fascinated by the beautiful world of minerals, such as agates, amethysts, jasper, rock crystals and other quartzes.

A special exhibition will present minerals recently found during the construction of the windmills on Freisen hill.

The club’s own museum, located about 200 meters away from the town hall, will be open to the public that day. There will be no entrance fee. In many showcases, findings from the past 30 years can be admired.

Entrance fee to the mineral fair will be €2 for adults and free for children under 14.

Freisen is located about 8 kilometers southwest of Baumholder. To get to Freisen, travel from Landstuhl north on autobahn A62.

Directional signs will be posted guiding you to the fair.
