A fair with quite a story to tell
The 100th birthday is not far off. A look back at an eventful history is worthwhile. In the mid-1920s (1926), the Grüne Woche opened its doors for the first time.
A lot has happened since then, a rapid journey from mechanization in agriculture through the war and post-war period to the times of the economic miracle began. After the reunification of Germany, the fair was able to welcome exhibitors and visitors from all over Germany for the first time in many decades. What a blast.
Since the 2000s, aspects of digitalization and globalization, as well as sustainability ideas, have taken on an increasingly influential role within the our theme worlds. We are excited to see how the journey will continue.
