Exactly one year after being awarded the title "school without racism – school with courage" (SOR-SMC), the P-seminar ethics of the gymnasium steigerwald-landschulheim wiesentheid organized an excursion to nurnberg for the school’s boarding students, the school announced. A total of 42 schoolchildren from ten different nations set off by bus with seminar leader veronika finkel and educator yvonne kropf to bring the young people from egypt, china, south korea, spain and many other nations closer to the french cultural metropolis. Despite the cold temperatures, the young people listened attentively to their classmates’ presentations on the history of the castle and the significance of nurnberg during the national socialist era, before continuing on to the christkindlesmarkt and lorenzkirche church with its numerous art treasures. The foreign schoolchildren took the opportunity to get an idea of the tradition and to buy typical german christmas presents for their families. Joyfully, zhimei and tianhan, who live near shanghai but will graduate from high school in wiesentheid, showed their achievements.
Fascination callenberg castle
When hubertus hereditary prince of saxony-coburg and gotha starts talking about callenberg castle, he quickly gets into the black: "on the one hand, i'm fascinated by the history of the building – and then, of course, it's also very beautiful!" For him it is "one of the most beautiful forest castles of all", which is why he would be happy if it would (again) establish itself with many coburgers as a place that one likes to visit, where one likes to linger. "For example, in connection with a gentle winter walk through the callenberg forest!"
Prince hubertus, who at the beginning of the year took over the management of the ducal foundation administration from his father prince andreas and thus also took over responsibility for callenberg castle, does not like the term "museum. Instead, he describes callenberg castle as "a piece of family history", in which the ducal art collection see is. The german schutzenmuseum is also an important pillar, but above all prince hubertus wants to create the image of a "living callenberg" transport.

It remained dry from above, only at the end it rained candy from the top of the crown tree.

This siebenburg tradition has become an integral part of the town's cultural calendar. In addition to the rough crown, there was also a children's crown, which was presented for the first time on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the founding of the company. The crown was tied on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the nurnberg district association. The saxons of siebenburg wanted to introduce the children and young people to the tying of the crown.

Worries about young talent? Missing!
In the past years, the sweat often flowed from the forehead of the lonnerstadter kerwasburschen. Not only because they had to lift a tree into the air, but also because the sun was burning down on them in the process. This year, on the other hand, the temperatures at the lonnerstadter kerwa were autumnally cool. But even that didn’t stop the kerwas boys from getting their kerwas tree out of the woods early in the morning on saturday. After a stopover for a sausage breakfast at the gasthaus popp in fetzelhofen, we continued towards lonnerstadt, where some visitors were already waiting for the boys.
"There are a lot of young boys with us", frank hablauer explained. There were 45 of them this year – compared to last year there were many new faces among them. While boys are sought elsewhere, there can be no complaints about a lack of new blood in lonnerstadt. Jan kropf led the kerwasburschen for years, but in a few weeks he will be getting married. And that means in lonnerstadt: officially he can’t be a lad anymore. True to an old kerwas song by the lads: "oh du verreck, verreck. Heiroodn you i ned." But with jan kropf it is now: "but when a scheena kummd, heirood at any hour!" So now jan kaiser and benjamin bar organize the young people.
