The current planning of the event is subject to Corona requirements. EVERY participant (including those who have been vaccinated and those who have recovered) must present a current rapid test. The quick test can be done at a Red Cross test center directly in front of the hall.
In crowded situations - especially if there is a queue at the entrance - a mask must be worn. Because of the negative test, no masks have to be worn in the building.
The number of people who are allowed to be in the hall at the same time is limited to 300. The distances (1.5 m) must be observed. In the interests of other visitors, we ask that you do not unnecessarily prolong your stay in the hall. ALL tickets are only valid for one day. Waiting times must be expected.
The catering takes place outside the hall so that the people in the catering area do not affect the number of participants in the hall.

|Our Collectors Fair|
The FORUM HISTORICUM Collectors fair is one of Germany's leading specialist events for militaria, military historics, phaleristics and collectors weapons from 1800 to 1960.
Since 1997 it has been the preferred venue for militariy relic-, medalls- and weapons-collectors from all European countries and even some from overseas.
Nearly 100 exhibitors offer a great selection of original historical military artifacts, medals, collectors weapons and other contemporary historical collectibles to an international audience (experienced collectors, military historians, textbook authors and interested museums).
The Focus is on German Militaria from the Napoleonic era to the beginning of the Federal Republic of Germany (approx. 1800-1960) that will appeal to both the novice and experienced, serious collector. The treasures you can find at the FORUM HISTORICUM Fair in Wirges, 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.
A wide range of specialist literature, antiquarian books and bibliophile literary works on military history complement the impressive product range of our collectors' fair.
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 Wirges to spend a successful day with fellow collectors and dealers from all over Europe in a pleasant atmosphere.
