Activities of the Interest Groups
All about plants/ Es grünt so grün
Outing to the Sculpture Garden at the Ludwigshöhe September 2020
It was one of the last perfect Summer days as the garden group „Es grünt so grün“ visited the Ludwigshöhe in Darmstadt-Eberstadt.
11 Ladies were led through the garden paradise which offered a magnificent background for the Joachim Kuhlmann sculptures.
In 2002 Joachim and his wife Elisabeth created a place which comforts the heart and soul. Works of art, studio and home are to be found in a garden landscape reminiscent of the Toscana.
Afterwards we all enjoyed a picnic of home-made delicacies which rounded off a perfect visit.

An English Evening
In September, 11 friends of the English Evening Interest Group met for a hike through Oberursel’s Heidetränk-Oppidum, a walled town and trading centre built by Celtic tribespeople more than 2,000 years ago.
During the last five centuries BC, Celtic peoples ruled extensive areas of Europe. In the Rhine-Main region, a large Celtic settlement developed during this period, well -protected by the eastern rim of the Taunus hills: the Heidetränk-Oppidum, which is one of the largest prehistoric complexes in Germany and one of the most important Celtic urban settlements in Europe.
After a one-hour walk through the beautiful autumnal ambience we arrived at the restaurant “Waldtraut” and enjoyed a warm dinner with cosy togetherness and nice conversations.

This group was formed in the 1980s by Maryan Herr, a future president of the IWC,
and still exists today with some original and some new participants. At present we
have eight members of varying nationalities.We read French literature, in French,
both classical and contemporary, which leads to lively discussion and
exchange of ideas at our monthly meetings. Covering an average of eight to ten books
a year, over time we have accumulated an impressive total of 300 to 350 books!
