Franz Winkler sent me information about the Kulmbach Show a couple of weeks ago. Franz writes,
Due to the fact that the place in the center of Kulmbach where the tin figure fair normally takes place, now is a construction area, the tin figure fair 2017 will move to another area. So this year it will take place at the site of a Kulmbach brewery in the Lichtenfelser street. This site is about 10 to 15 minutes of walking from the center of Kulmbach and of the Stadthalle where the diorama – and figure competition will take place again as usual (see picture). A bus shuttle service (free of charge) will connect the venue of the tin figure fair and the Stadthalle. This new site for the tin figure fair is only for the fair 2017 due to the construction area this year.
