We are two Zontians (Regina Blum and Dr. Maria Bergmann) und like to offer a guided tour to the City of Frankfurt (25 km away von Seligenstadt) and to Aschaffenburg, a small nice town at the river Main and a beautiful castle. Our club is in Seligenstadt, also a nice historical village with half-timbered houses. We wood like to cook and eat all together. We also will arrange a meeting with all Zontians from our club in Seligenstadt. So we look forward to some interesting days with our friends from all over the world. The offered overnight stay is in Hainstadt, 4 km from Seligenstadt. Therefore it makes sense to make a guided tour out of it because of the transport. Should someone prefer to stay in a hotel but want to join our excursions, no problem either. There are several hotels in Seligenstadt. If applicable RS
