Forster city voucher

Our bonus stamp campaign “Don’t go away, buy in town” has now been replaced by the “Forster town voucher”.

Customers have the opportunity to purchase a special gift voucher, which the recipient can then redeem at the Forst retailer or service provider of their choice.

This makes the Forst town voucher a perfect gift, the purchase is made in Forst and, quite incidentally, the positive image of a unity of town administration, traders and service providers is created.

The vouchers, worth 5.00 / 10.00 / 25.00 or 50.00 euros, can be purchased at the town hall of Forst (Lausitz), Lindenstraße 10-12, or at the Forst Tourist Information Centre, Cottbuser Straße 10. They bear the logos of the trade association and the Rose City of Forst (Lausitz). They are valid for 3 years.
A QR code is printed on each voucher, which leads to our daily updated website with the participating traders. The print version of the trader list enclosed with the voucher is updated every six months.

The “Forster Stadtgutschein” can be redeemed here (List of participants “Forster city voucher” as PDF / Stand 14.01.2021):
