The website (Feuerwerk is the German word for fireworks) is designated for an introduction to fireworks and pyrotechnics by providing informations and illustrations about the set up of professional (Class B) firework displays, indoor fireworks, consumer fireworks (Class C) and special effects.

The performance of professional and consumer firework devices is explained and a basic knowledge of pyrochemistry is offered by comprehensible terms. There are sections about history of fireworks, pyrotechnically related regulations in Germany and safety rules on display fireworks. The fireworks wiki may serve as a online fireworks dictionary for the novice and the expert as well. Pictures, animations and videos assist to understand some more complicated topics. Readers can find a list about international literature on pyrotechnics and a database with pyrolinks on internet for further knowledge.
Beside of these static contents a numerous community of German speaking and international pyrotechnicians and fireworks fans meet on in order to talk about the profession and hobby they share. The community pages on this website are arranged into a forum (discussion board), a chat (IRC), a users gallery (album), a video server and a calendar listing important international pyro events.
