All are welcome to join this trip. There are many very welcoming German folk waiting to entertain us whether we have been before or not. Please do let us know if you'd like to get involved in this SOON (in fact ASAP) as we are already booking flights to get the better (lower) prices. Needless to say, we always have a great time over in Horb. Christine Dietz never fails to lay on a fabulous program for us all. BOOK SOON!.
