Idar-Oberstein – marvel, discover & enjoy!

When spring arrives it's time for precious stones, mystical worlds and wildly romantic nature. Idar-Oberstein is full of variety and alive.

One highlight  is the gemstone and goldsmith market. On the first weekend in August, craftsmen show their works of art and demonstrate their skills outdoors in the historical heart of the suburb of Oberstein, situated below the Felsenkirche. And visitors have the opportunity to take a look at the grinders at their work.
Idar-Oberstein is known all over the world for its gemstone and jewellery industry, which goes back 500 years and is closely linked to the city's history. Discover the secret of the legendary Felsenkirche or explore Bosselstein Castle and Oberstein Castle. Follow the path of the gemstones – from the unique gemstone mines across the historical Weiherschleife to the fascinating museums in the city.
