Several of our group organizers are veterans of many Volksmarches in Germany and we make every attempt to keep our
Volksmarches authentic to the German culture. Many of our trail markings are bi-lingual. Walkers and guests are invited into the
Klubhaus after the walk for music and entertainment. German wine and beer and other beverages as well as homemade German
food will be available at reasonable prices. This walk will feature Iris’s “made from scratch” Potato Pancakes.
