VfL Geesthacht and Arbeiter-Samariter-Jugend together in the camp


AWO Geesthacht summer event
After a two-year break, AWO Geesthacht could celebrate its summer festival this year. This time the celebration took place in the parish hall of the Church of Christ on Neuen Krug. At the opening, the first chairman, Heinrich Siewers, gave a short speech. There was an extensive buffet with various roasts and salads and a variety of drinks. The salads were made by the helpers themselves. As with many other festivals, Auga’s house musician provided musical entertainment. As the weather was good, it was also possible to use the terrace. According to the organizers, all participants thought it was a successful celebration.


Construction work and traffic problems on Steinstrasse
In the period from August 15 to 26, drivers, cyclists and pedestrians must be prepared for temporary traffic difficulties. The asphalt works will be carried out in the Steinstraße area at house number 45-65. The southern cycling and walking path in this area will be completely closed during construction works. There is also a short-term narrowing of the roadway of up to 20 minutes in this area, announced and regulated by road signs, as cobblestones protrude in the southern lane. The detour for cyclists and pedestrians will take place via traffic lights on Steinstrasse 40 and at the MC-Donalds intersection (Steinstrasse / Wärderstrasse / Dünebergerstrasse / Steglitzer Strasse).


Relaxation courses at VfL Geesthacht
Stress, sitting postures and always the same movement sequences very often cause tension and pain, especially in the neck and shoulder area. Various effective relaxation exercises restore vitality, mobility and well-being. Exercises to deepen your breath are just as important as the phases of tracking and deep relaxation. From August, VfL Geesthacht will once again offer various relaxation courses such as Yoga, Qigong, Taiji and Feldenkrais. A novelty in the program is the “Yoga + Meditation” course run by yoga teacher Jermaine Jackson. The VfL Sportzentrale team will be happy to advise you on choosing a course for 04152/931 40 20.


Closure of Grünhofer Strasse
Grünhofer Strasse in the Grünhof-Tesperhude district of Geesthacht will be fully closed at number 50 on Saturday 20 August 12:30 – 18:30. The reason: the local defense Grünhof-Tesperhude invites you to an “Open Day” on the occasion of its 90th anniversary.


Blocking the Schillerstrasse
On Saturday, August 20, between 12:00 and 19:00, road users must be prepared for traffic problems on Schillerstrasse. On the level of houses numbered 23 to 33, the street is completely closed due to an incident. The traffic will be routed through Bergedorfer Straße, Hafenstraße, Markt and Hafenstraße.
