2. Partner Cities Market in Freiburg: June 19-25, 2017
 
The Association is arranging a visit to Freiburg in the summer of 2017, for members and friends, timed to coincide with Freiburg’s June 23 & 24 Partner Cities Market when, alongside Freiburg’s eight other twin cities, we will be running a stall in the Rathausplatz to promote Guildford and its attractions.
.
Our group will have:
.
  • a guided tour of Freiburg;
  • a tour of Vauban, the renowned environmentally-advanced settlement; and
  • a dinner with our friends in the Freiburg Anglo-German Club. 
Visits to the Schauinsland mountain, the Titisee lake, the Black Forest and other local places of interest can also be arranged.
.
Various cultural activities will also take place, in association with the Partner Cities Market.
.
Some Association members plan to be in Freiburg from June 19-25, but of course those joining the trip are free to vary those dates for themselves, if they wish.
.
It is almost certain that not enough Association members and friends will be taking part to enable us to go by coach, so people will need to make their own travel arrangements: there are flights to Basel, and an airport bus from there to Freiburg; alternatively travel by train is also possible, e.g., with a direct TGV link from Paris to Freiburg (in addition to the rail link from Basel).
.
We expect that our group will stay at the Schwarzwälder Hof, a comfortable family-run hotel in the city centre close to the Münster, where groups from the Association have stayed many times. The hotel charges about €75 for a single room, and €95 for a double.
.
Some people have already signed up for the trip and if you are interested in joining us let me know by January 23.

Please phone the Chairman if you would like to discuss the arrangements, or else use e-mail, addressed to: guildford.freiburg@gmail.com.
