A group of 14 travelled to our twin town of Moosburg, near Munich, for the weekend of 25th-27th October. The official part of the visit included a coach trip to nearby Regensburg, to visit the Museum of Bavarian History (‘Mad’ King Ludwig and all), the stone bridge and the old Town Hall torture chamber! Not forgetting lunch. Dinner was in an Italian restaurant back in Moosburg, where we exchanged gifts. The Moosburg mayor (in her last year as mayor) kindly sent us a book on Moosburg and we gave her and the organiser, Erwin Weber, gifts from our local English Cream Tea Company (White Roding). We then all wandered off to a soirée at one of the hosts’ houses, where we were in good voice.

On Sunday we largely did our own thing, including a visit to the local model railway exhibition (more interesting than it sounds). Others went to Munich and other sights nearby. Most of us sampled the atmosphere and the beer/food at the famous Hofbräuhaus…in the sixteenth century in Germany beer was regarded as fundamental food on a par with bread.

We also had the chance to admire the new Town Twinning sign, celebrating the Sawbridgeworth-Moosburg link from 2018.
