In the cen­ter of leis­ure: everything that rocks and crashes

From the end of the 1960s, the ?Freizeitzen­trum West? (re­cre­ation­al cen­ter west) was a guar­an­tee that fas­cin­at­ing bands would come to the city to play. In the un­usu­al youth club to the west of the in­ner city in the Kreuzvier­tel dis­trict, with a bowl­ing al­ley in the cel­lar, a cinema and a minigolf course, there?s space for an audi­ence of just 350. For over 40 years, up­com­ing bands have played here, such as the Scor­pi­ons, Bad Re­li­gion, Green Day, White Stripes or die Fant­astischen Vi­er. The cel­lar of the FZW has also hos­ted the ?Club Trin­id­ad? since the mid-1990s, which over time be­came the well-known elec­tron­ic mu­sic fest­iv­al, ?Juicy Beats?. In the in­ter­im, the FZW has be­come lar­ger and more com­mer­cial else­where. The ?old FZW? is a le­gend that has in­spired count­less mu­sic fans from the re­gion.
