The Long Night of Gemstones will become a regular part of INTERGEM. Together with the exhibitors, we invite you to visit INTERGEM 2022 and at the same time to experience the uniqueness and competence of Idar-Oberstein as part of the Long Night of Gemstones.

On trade fair Saturday, September 24, 2022, seven institutions in the city of Idar-Oberstein will open their doors to welcome exhibitors and visitors of the INTERGEM from 7:00 p.m. to midnight free of charge. Citizens of Idar-Oberstein are also invited to take part. The German Gemstone Museum, the Historic Pond Loop, the German Gemmological Association, the Industrial Monument Bengel, the University of Idar-Oberstein, the Steinkaulenberg Gem Mines and the German Mineral Museum together stand for the unique competence and tradition of Idar-Oberstein regarding the jewellery and gemstone industry. Each location will be offering an attractive program with guided tours, readings, (live) music and interesting information.

INTERGEM organizes bus shuttles so visitors can decide on their own which location and how many of them they want to visit. Alternatively, you can also walk or use your car. Capacity limitations are given for the guided tours in the Industrial Monument Bengel and the gem mines. If you are interested in these guided tours, please pre-register online via INTERGEM before.

Due to a devastating fire in the facilities of the Trier University – Campus Idar-Oberstein on July 18th, 2022, this stop will be cancelled for the Long Night of Gemstones. The university team is already working with their supporters to set up new workshops and to move into replacement facilities.

We are very pleased that, despite these circumstances, the students of the final classes will be presenting their work at INTERGEM in Hall 2.
