37. Arms & Militaria Fair EBERNHAHN (near Koblenz) 11+12.09.2015 GERMANY
After a very successful spring-fair, I would like to invite you to the 37th international Arms & Militaria Fair FORUM HISTORICUM, which took place on September 11th and 12th, 2015 in 56424 Ebernhahn near Koblenz (GERMANY).
The FORUM HISTORICUM Collectors fair is one of Germany's leading specialist events for militaria, military historics, phaleristics, paperwork, photos and collectors weapons.
Since 1997 it has been the preferred venue for militariy relic-, medalls- and weapons-collectors from all European countries and even some from overseas.
About 90 exhibitors offer a great selection of original historical military artifacts, collectors weapons and other contemporary historical collectibles that will appeal to experienced, serious collectors.
The treasures you can find at the FORUM HISTORICUM Fair in Ebernhahn, are sure to capture the heart of any history buff.
Most of the pieces on offer originate directly from veterans and their families, as well as from house clearances or from resolutions of prestigious german collections.
As many of the exhibitors are private collectors and semi-professional dealers, you can often find extremly interesting rarities (one-of-a-kind collectibles) at affordable prices and you have the chance to make surprisingly good bargains ... There are also often private visitors from our area who attend our fair, because they want to sell a discovery from their attic or an old family heirloom.
So a visit is for sure worthwile, even with a long journey. Buy the German WW2-relics at the place where it comes from !!!
We hope to see you at the next Forum Historicum Fair in Ebernhahn to spend a successful day with fellow collectors and dealers from all over Europe in a pleasant atmosphere.
The opening times:
Friday, September 11, 2015, 12am -5pm
Saturday, September 12, 2015, 10am-3 pm
Friday 7am - 12am dealers setup
We are sure that we will have a very interesting event with collectors and dealers from all over Europe ... well worth a visit.

A little summary of our collectors' fair in Ebernhahn (Germany)
Dear friends of the War Relics Forum,
here's a little summary of our collectors' fair in Ebernhahn (Germany) last weekend:
Especially due to the elimination of many other German collector fairs Ebernhahn has won in importance and has become a mandatory event for advanced collectors of all kind of German Militaria.
Already some time before the opening of the event the visitors could barely find a parking place near the sports hall in Ebernhahn. Collectors from all over Germany and neighboring European countries waited patiently in front of the entrance ... and then exactly at 12 clock they could start their hunt for collection rarities and Militaria bargains.
This time, poured even more visitors through the rooms of the sportshall in Ebernhahn. There was again a very wide range from the collection area weapons and militaria, medals, etc. - mainly offered by dedicated private collectors and a few professional traders.
We had a lot of fun and we met a lot of acquaintances and nice people.
In the restaurant - under new management - where people could get freshly prepared meals and homemade cakes - the visitors could show proudly inexpensively acquired achievements to their collector friends and "talk shop" about it.
Visitors and exhibitors were mostly impressed by the increasingly sophisticated collectors' fair in Ebernhahn.
The next show in Ebernhahn will be on 8th and 9th of april 2016.

Sounds very interesting, a few photo's of the event and what was on offer would be great and will tempt a few of us to take the trip and attend the next fair.

unfortunately I don't have the actual photos of the show at last weekend on my PC. But you can find some fotos of recent Ebernhahn-shows on our homepage: FORUM HISTORICUM EBERNHAHN
I made it to the military show at Ebernhahn a couple of times, but that was probably 10+ yrs ago. A buddy and I drove up from Baumholder.
Lots of interesting stuff and I bought a few items. If memory serves me right prices were a bit on the high side.
our fair in Ebernhahn has changed a lot in the meantime. For example we now have added 600 m2 of exhibition space in the adjacent building.
If you compare the prices in Ebernhahn with other German shows, the prices tend to be lower, since there ate many private collectors who offer their pieces and only a few professional dealers are represented.
And as the stand-rental in Ebernhahn is only a small fraction of what exhibitors have to pay f.e. in Kassel or Reichertshofen ... and you can get cheaper accommodations ... and the exhibitors have in Ebernhahn only to pay accommodation for one night and in Kassel and Reichertshofen for four nights ... the exhibitors can sell a lot cheaper because their costs are not so extremely high than f.e. in Kassel and Reichertshofen.
