Reeser Wiesenkultur: Visitors should know this in advance

The second Reiser Wiesenculture starts on Thursday. The site is currently being prepared. Event visitors should know this.

“It’s served,” says Christoph Gerwers, letting his gaze wander over the Schützenplatz on Bergswicker Strasse in Rees. There is lively activity here in the sunlight. Within a few hours, the Decor Event team set up the stage and will begin its adjustment at noon.

Detlef Westerhoff from Heelden is also positioning his white shrine in order to ensure proper gastronomy as well. In fact, almost everything is ready. “Now only the guests have to come,” says the mayor of Rees.

Up to 800 visitors have space at the Reeser Wiesenkultur fair

Rees city organizers are hoping for more visitors by Thursday. While 250 cars found meadow space in the harsh blockade in 2021, about 500 people should now be able to enjoy the offer Thursday at Sven Pistor and 800 each at Wiesen-Beatz, Rock and Comedy and Family Day.

“We tried to create something for the Reesers,” says Christoph Gerwers. Now he can hardly wait for the answer. Which of course will also be crucial in determining whether Wiesenkultur, which is also backed by Sparkasse Rhein-Mass and Westenergie, will be placed on the Rees town’s calendar of events.

You can sit in Sven Pistor’s

Starts on Thursday, April 28th. “Then the place will also have seats,” reveals Sigrid Mölleken. There will be only one dance floor at Wiesen-Beatz on Friday. According to the head of the cultural office, partial seats with beer tents and dance floors are also planned for Saturday and Sunday.

The city has already placed numerous stop signs along the Bergswicker Straße. “The restricted area is important not to interrupt traffic,” Gerwers said. It also calls on Rees’s people in particular: “Come by bike.” Otherwise, however, there are also parking spaces in the adjacent area near the courtyard of the Rees building, which the farmer makes available. Here you can park for free. Bicycles can also be parked in the courtyard of the palace.

Security controls incoming visitors

Access to the Wiesenkultur site is via the courtyard of the building. “Here is the entrance and a few meters later the security check,” says Mölleken. You are not allowed to bring your own food and drinks, but blanket and seat cushions are allowed. Fitness bags and jute bags as well as small handbags are also allowed.

In addition to the five security staff, staff from the Rees city administration will of course also be on duty. Ten to twelve, reveals Mölleken. They will make sure everything goes as smoothly as possible. To get to the site, tickets are of course required. “These can still be purchased online until the event starts,” says spokeswoman Jörn Franken. Or even in the tourist information of the city of Rees. Important: There will be no checkout.

The program is designed for all ages

The people in charge are happy that the weather seems to be booming. Sigrid Mölleken is convinced that the program will be well received. “We have something for everyone and every age.”
