For ten o'clock the guests from the french twin town sainte-luce-sur-loire had been ordered to the georgsbrunnen. Klaus-peter gabelein from the local history society and the partnership representative of the city of herzogenaurach, rosa abel, were already waiting for the young frenchmen and their companions. The children and young people from the twin town were in herzogenaurach for the first time and some of them seemed to have been a little late to bed the day before, which was evident from the faces of the youngsters.
The first to arrive at the marketplace was mayor bernard aunette from sainte-luce-sur-loire, who calmly watched the arrival of his young burghers. Even mayor german hacker (SPD) did not want to miss the opportunity to bury the 46 frenchmen and be available for some photos. Shortly before the tour began, a primary school class crossed the market square and the children buried "their mayor" by handshake. "So you can also find fans, just stand on the market place", flattened gabelein and joined the school class in a hunched posture. The french were amazed to see children running up to the mayor and saying "hello, mr. Hacker" call.
In the home of sports shoes
Because of the limited time, there was only a small city tour with gabelein, starting from the market place, castle courtyard, once around the church and through the main street back to the meeting point realschule. There the bus was already waiting, because it went to the north to the outlets. "So that you could really try out for the mini-olympics and also wear the right shoes", gabelein gave them something else to take with them on the way. For he told not only the history of the city, but also the history of the sporting goods industry at the cobbler's fountain.
