How are things going in Freiburg? Wie geht's?

  • Freiburg City Council has just decided that - due of course to the pandemic - the planned 900th anniversary celebrations and the Partner City Fair will both be reduced in scope and scale considerably. They will not be inviting the planned delegations from their 12 twin towns (partner cities).

  • The GTA members' trip might still take place, if the situation improves enough to make it reasonably safe - with or without festivities, there's plenty to do and see in Freiburg and lovely people to meet.  Failing that, we might propose a last-minute trip in September or October - we'll be monitoring the situation.

  • Read a personal account in the Schwesterlich News feature in the Guildford Dragon, Guildford's online newspaper -  a regular exchange of news between the two towns.
