Spring surprises in Franken, Germany
The Altenpflege trade fair takes place from 25 to 27 April in Nuremberg
This trade fair alternates each year between two cities, both of which are always worth the trip – Hanover and Nuremberg. This year we are back in Franken. The Altenpflege fair will open its doors at the Nürnberg Messe exhibition centre from 25 to 27 April 2017 (Tuesday to Thursday). And a visit to the Stiegelmeyer stand is particularly worthwhile.
Discover our wide range of products for nursing homes and retirement homes! The cosy Venta low-height bed with its elegant Softcovers combines safety and comfort with an appealing design. The Vertica care mobilisation bed moves its occupants gently into a proper sitting position and helps them to experience everyday life at eye level again. Care trainees also enjoy a high level of comfort when they spend the night in our modern Carino residential bed.
As usual, visitors can get to know our beds and furniture at an attractively presented stand (Hall 1, Stand B10). This year, you can look forward to a colourful springtime surprise!
The Altenpflege trade fair is open daily from 9 am to 6 pm (to 5 pm on 27 April). This leaves plenty of time for you to enjoy the atmosphere of Nuremberg. Bavaria's second largest city is synonymous with cosiness and romantic charm – although it was so severely damaged during the Second World War that complete abandonment of the city was seriously considered. Fortunately, the decision was made to rebuild, so that the historic old town at the foot of the Imperial Castle can be experienced again today.
If you are interested in art and culture, you should take a detour to Tiergärtnertorplatz and visit the house where Albrecht Dürer lived. Here you will find a fascinating presentation of the life and work of the great painter from the early 16th century. Nuremberg trade fair guests will know that the city is also unparalleled when it comes to children's toys. A visit to the toy museum in Karlstraße is therefore the perfect place to indulge in nostalgic childhood memories.
And if the weather is kind, you may be tempted by the Nuremberg Spring Festival. The traditional funfair at the Volksfestplatz am Dutzendteich offers attractions for all ages. Wednesday 26 of April is family day there, with a special programme of events.
