  1. History and archaeology tour on June 13th

    Our tours involve handling artefacts. Unfortunately, they do not like the rain and the wet, which is what we are forecast on Saturday, so regretfully, we have to pull this tour. If there is interest we will run the same one later in the summer. We are also planning a walk through the woods at Grunwald where we would visit the prehistoric burial mounds, learn about the massive archaeological dig which took place in the village back in 2013 (where the golf course used to be) and examine the late Roman fort.

  2. Archery clubs in Munich

    HanZi - is this ongoing? I have been looking at starting out in archery - only interested in traditional western bows - but feel a bit lost when it comes to choosing a bow suitable for an adult novice. Regards, Taff
