beginning of the year 1999, Freyburg was officially recognised as a 'health
resort'. The town, which is already known for being both a wine town and wine growers town in the
Saale-Unstrut region, is also taking on the role of organisers of the '77th Jahn
Gymnastics Festival 1999, an unique event in apparatus gymnastics.
Here, in the final place that the 'Father of Gymnastics' worked, great progress has been
made in the renovation and restoration of Jahn memorials in the last ten
which really suit the picturesque bachground of the town of Freyburg, the town on the
banks of the Unstrut river.
Places of unique cultural and historical value, such as the Jahn Museum, Jahn Hall of
Honour and the Historical Gymnasium are evidence of the town's goal of attraction an
ever-increasing number of gymnastics enthusiasts to the town.
This invitation goes out to all gymnastics clubs in the world from Freyburg, via
Come and visit us, trace the footsteps of the 'Father of Gymnastics' or simply come and
taste a drop of Saale-Unstrut wine or have a glass of 'Rotkaeppchen' Sparkling wine,
which, by the
way, also natures within our town walls.
Whatever you do, don't miss our famous 'Wine Festival', which
traditionally takes place on the 2nd weekend in September every year.
... and in August every year, since 1901, more than 1,700 apparatus gymnasts do their bit
for Jahn Heritage in a sporting way by taking part in the gem of a gymnastic event which
you shouldn't miss: 2002, August, the
23rd - 25th!
Well, surf on the internet first, then we'll look forward to your
