Protected against the weather in Hattingen's city centre
Hattingen Marketing and partners offer free rental of umbrellas.
Sometimes the rain falls down unexpectedly and many of us know at that moment that it would have been wiser if we would have brought an umbrella. Good news for those, who go shopping in Hattingen's old town centre and are caught in the rain: The Hattingen tourist information and its partners offer the free use of umbrellas against payment of a deposit.
Together with Sparkasse Hattingen, Hattingen Marketing offers this new service to all guests and visitors. In celebration of their 175th anniversary, the Sparkasse has donated 175 umbrellas. „175 umbrellas symbolise our anniversary. The Sparkasse has always been a protective umbrella for its clients and it wishes that all citizens are protected against the rain," says Udo Schnieders, marketing director at Sparkasse Hattingen.
The high quality red and blue stick umbrellas that wear the Hattingen city logo and the Sparkassen logo open automatically by pushing the umbrella button. The umbrellas are available during business hours. If you leave a deposit of 10 euros, you can have a carefree stroll through Hattingen's old city centre. After the umbrella has been returned to any of the participating shops, the 10 euros will be refunded - or you can take the umbrella back home with you, without the refund.
For your convenience, you can pick up the umbrellas at one shop, but you needn't return them to the same shop; you can return them at any of the participating companies, retail or service shops. Be our guest and put our new service to the test.
