Visits from Barking to Witten

Every two years, alternating with trips from Witten to England, groups from Barking & Dagenham reciprocate and visit Witten.

The Club does it utmost to put on a varied programme for its guests from the UK. In the past, for example, we have arranged visits to any number of Witten's sightseeing attractions - e.g. Nightingale Colliery, Hardenstein Castle ruins, Lechner Hof (a sculpture yard), Hohenstein Park and a "voyage" on the River Ruhr courtesy off MS Schwalbe.

But there are lots to see and do in the surrounding area as well. We have taken our friends from Barking & Dagenham to other interesting places such as Düsseldorf, Wuppertal, Herdecke and Soest; visited the Botanical Gardens in Bochum; and travelled to Lake Baldeney and Villa Hügel in Essen. Not surprisingly, an outing to a brewery never seems to go amiss - the Fiege or Warstein breweries in the vicinity, for example.

Another programme item that always goes down a treat are the evening get-togethers in the Lucas Centre, the Ratskeller or in the clubhouse of the Witten Anglers' Association.
