Marburg celebrates its fiftieth birthday on Sunday (5 June) with a huge birthday table made up of 800 sets of beer tents. From 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Marburg residents, as well as guests from outside Marburg, can celebrate on the city highway under the banner “Tischlein-Deck-Dich” on the 2.5 kilometer “Festival Mile”. The pass to the north is called Tischlein lane, and the pass to the south is the “navigation lane”. While the Tischlein Pass has tables and benches as well as six stages, the hopping pass is used to get around by bike, scooter, sled, or on foot.
In this article we provide brief and concise information on the most important points about the main event.
Federal Highway 3 was closed to traffic on Sunday (May 5) for the main Marburg anniversary event between the Marburg-Süd and Kolbe/Verde junction from about 5 a.m. in the morning. The closure continues into the night. Signs were placed on bypass roads, both in the city and in large areas.
B3 will be closed for anniversary events from 5 a.m. on Sunday in both directions from the Marburg-Süd and Cölbe/Wehrda junctions. A large area has been diverted to the south from the Fraunhausen/Ipsdorfergrund junction. From there it passes the Ebsdorfer Grund via Kirchhain and Federal Highway 62 to Bürgeln, where traffic is diverted back to the B3. For cross-regional traffic from the north, this diversion applies in reverse.
At the intersection of Marburg Sud, traffic can still exit from the B3 to Marburg or vice versa in the direction of Gießen. An in-city diversion via Lahnberge is available for northbound traffic. The road from Marburg-Süd to Gisselberger Straße is still open, but as a one-way street only in that direction. Krekel is a dead end, the entrance from the south is closed.
If you’re coming from the north, leave the B3 at the Cölbe/Wehrda junction. The diversion marked again takes place via Lahnberge and Südspange to the B3 junction south. If you want to get to the Wehrda or Cölbe district from the North Wehrda/Cölbe exit, drive via Siemensstraße, Afföllerstraße and Kaufpark.
If possible, you should travel to Marburg without a car. According to the city of Marburg, the Stadtwerke bus schedule will be greatly expanded, for example with the hourly call to the areas from 9 am and additional traffic from the exhibition center through the old university library and Erlenring to the Tischlein central entrances. Travel by bus is free, and the train also offers free trips to Biedenkopf. Darüber hinaus – und weil parallel auch die Aktion “Lahntal total” stattfindet – fährt die Regionalbahn zwischen Marburg, Biedenkopf und Erndtebrück statt der sonst zweistündigen Verbindungen an diesem Tag stündlich. hour. In addition, the railways mainly use double-decker buses.

P+R parking spaces are available at Messeplatz, at Kaufpark Herkules (Temmlerstraße) or at Pharmaserv (Emil-von-Behring-Straße). A shuttle bus runs from Messeplatz to the old university library and to the entrances to Tischlein. Parking spaces are also available in the city centre.
Cyclists can park their two-wheeled vehicle at the bike stops at the crossings and then proceed to the Tischlein lane.

The judge will officially open the festival at 11 am on the main stage (near the old university library). There is a music school and a Pentecost service that will run the program throughout the day. Four smaller stages along the way give birthday table groups and establishments the opportunity to present themselves. In the south, the upper Hessian Press will provide entertainment.
