„Tales of a day and night guard“

Discover this new way of learning interesting and entertaining facts about Veitshöchheim: Klaus Körber is an area manager at Bayerische Landesanstalt Veitshöchheim, a regular guest of the gardening TV programme "Querbeet" presented by Bayerischer Rundfunk, writer for the "Erlabrunner Narreköpf" carnival association, and a long-standing citizen of Franconia. With this unique programme, he is sure to captivate his audience from the first to the last moment! The „day and night guard of Veitshöchheim“ is a rather modest example of his profession, compared to his colleagues from bigger cities. Shirt-sleeved, whimsical, simple-minded, yet not lacking wisdom, he describes the essence of Veitshöchheim and its people in facts and stories, at times jovial, at times reflective. The town chronicles serve as the central thread, to which he adds numerous personal impressions, assumptions and experiences. His main aim is to be entertaining and informative at the same time.

Duration: 1.5 hours / costs: 60,- € per group.

Please note that this offer is currently only available in German language.
