Gerry Weber Open
Gerry Weber Stadium
Gerry Weber Open is one of the most famous tennis tournaments in Germany. Many stars come to Halle every year. Roger Federer is the record winner. Every day of the Gerry Weber Open international singers come here, this year e.g. Marlon Roudette came to sing. The Gerry Weber Open is the only lawn tournament in Germany. Next to the stadium are three other tennis courts. Every year there are many shops around the stadium, in some shops you can buy tennis rackets and tennis clothes, there are also shops where you can buy mobile phones. In one shop you can play mini golf and if you win you'll get tickets for the next day or tickets for the 1st German Tennis League. The stadium is called Gerry Weber Stadium. Next to the courts is the hotel where the players live for one week. In this year it was the 22nd Gerry Weber Open.

Town fair: „Haller Willem“
A very important fair in our hometown is the town fair Haller Willem.
The town fair Haller Willem took place this year from Wednesday the 28th May to Thursday the 29th May 2014. There you can do many different things for example dancing, eat something, go on roundabouts and driving with the train Haller Willem. \(^_^)/
Wednesday at 04.00 pm the City Festival opened. The mayoress held a little speech and planted traditionally a linden (tree). Also you can go to many stands where you can buy some traditional things from Halle(Westf.).
On the town fair you can buy things out of wood and stuff as well as a lot of sweets.
Sometimes the firefighters from Halle lead through an exercise where you can stay and watch them. :-)
