Visit in Schwetzingen

As always, our delegation was greeted with overwhelming hospitality.  We were treated to visits in and around Schwetzingen, met Schwetzingers from all walks of life, and had the privilege to attend the Asparagus Fest that coincided this year with the 1250th anniversary of Schwetzingen's first mention in an official document. Below, you will find some impressions of the Spargelfest (Asparagus Fest). More pictures can be found on our Facebook Page
