Guided tour of Grötzingen, Saturday, 19 July 2014

Dear Members and Guests

We would like to invite you to join us on July 19, 2014 for a delightful tour of Aichtal-Grötzingen, a small but quaintly beautiful walled town about 18 km south of Stuttgart in the district of Esslingen that escaped the ravages of WWII. We will do a guided tour with a retired historian who will tell us the story of the town. In addition to the historical remains, we will see half-timbered houses, decorated front yards and much more. We will also visit an old blacksmith shop where Gabriel Takacs now makes metal sculptures from stainless steel, not the rusty sculptures more commonly seen. This will be easy walking with no big hills or steps. .
