Homburg Flea and Antiques Market
The biggest flea and antiques market in southwest Germany, Homburg Flea and Antiques Market takes place on the first Saturday of the month, in the area known as the Forum, in front of the Homburg Rathaus (town hall) and the Landratsamt.
The flea market is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on sale are all the regular things you'd expect to find as well as antiques and handcrafts.
Visitors to the flea market are asked to use parking places in the town center or on the edge of town, and not to park in the parking lots of Aldi or Hela which are only for the use of customers of the two stores.

THE NEROBERG MOUNTAIN RAILWAY
126 Years - 1888 - 2014
Wiesbaden at its most romantic
Enjoy a unique experience – a ride on the Neroberg Mountain Railway, a historic monument! It is the oldest water ballast-driven cog-and-rack railway in Germany.
Since the service opened in 1888, Germany’s Year of the Three Emperors, the two original wagons – bearing Wiesbaden’s brightly coloured blue and yellow livery – have been rumbling up and down the Neroberg, Wiesbaden’s landmark mountain.
The Mainz Wine Market in the Romantic City Park
August 27th to 30th and September 3rd to 6th, 2015
Once a year, during the last week of August and the first weekend in September, anyone and everyone who produces, sells or just enjoys wine in the region takes part in a get-together in Mainz’s Stadtpark (city park). The park, with its beautiful rose garden, is the romantic setting for the largest wine festival in Mainz.
With the family in tow, it's off to the wine market to enjoy extensive celebrations, chatting and tasting. Locals and guests quickly get to know each other during this week - maybe while talking about the typical Rheinhessen wine vocabulary? After all, those who just want to have a small sip after enjoying their Spundekäs', do well to order a Piffche. To empty the 0.1-litre glass takes no longer than a whistle. Those who prefer crafts will enjoy the artists’ market in the Rosengarten (Rose Garden).
WLADIMIR KLITSCHKO vs. TYSON FURY
24.10. Düsseldorf / Esprit Arena - 20:00
Tyson Fury will take on Wladimir Klitschko in Germany in October after the heavyweights’ rival camps reached an agreement. The deal was struck at the last moment at the WBA offices in Panama. The contest will now take place in the German city of Dusseldorf on October 24. Klitschko holds three versions of the world title – those of the IBF, the WBA and the WBO. The latter two organisations ordered the Ukrainian to defend against mandatory challenger Fury. The unbeaten Mancunian tweeted: “The Gypsy King will come out of this fight as the best heavyweight on the planet".
