Photos of Alzey and the surrounding countryside

Many sights may be discovered in Alzey's centre with half-timbered houses, the historic Schloß, shops, restaurants and cafés. Situated in the wine region of Rheinhessen Palatinate there is plenty to explore too in the surrounding area.

2022 - Platinum Jubilee in Harpenden

Throughout the UK there have been celebrations for the accomplishment of seventy years of service by Queen Elizabeth II. Harpenden Town council organised events for this royal occasion including a funfair and several stalls selling produce such as sizzling German sausages and delectable Austrian cakes.

2020-2021 - A year's reflections

It has been a little over a year now with periods of lockdown, socially distancing and generally taking special care. We've had plenty of on-line meetings and messages, walking in the countryside and taking-up new activities. We have two collections, one showing pictures of Harpenden and the surrounding areas with the changing seasons and one that is specifically Covid-19 related including tests and vaccinations. Particular thanks to all who contributed their photos.

2020 - Alzey Posters Rediscovered

A couple of months ago our Friends of Alzey Chair Susan Vinther stumbled over a small collection of Alzey posters from yesteryear. The tourism poster may be familiar to some of you and possibly the wine promotion ones, but probably not the art posters. Here they are for you to see, click here. Thanks to Paul Gloess for photographing them.
