All about wood
Wittgenstein is one of the most wooded regions in Germany: forestry and wood processing have been a tradition for centuries. The two-day Holzmarkt (wood market) presents the entire range of value that the Wittgensteiner forest creates. The event has firmly established itself as a shop window for innovative products as well as manufacturing and processing methods around the raw material wood.
Many exhibitors will present their offer on various topics, supplemented by the market program with specialist lectures, panel discussions and forest pedagogical actions. In addition, internationally renowned artists present their work on the material wood. A special attraction on the Holzmarkt are, of course, the Lumberjack Games in the "Arena" in the town hall garden. In these exciting competitions it's all about skill, speed, precision and safety when dealing with chainsaw, towing saw and saw ax.
