Dear Nativity Friends, The Rurdorfer Nativity Friends e.V., the Association “Vrienden van der Kerstgroep” Nederland and the Association of Nativity Friends of Belgium are looking forward to seeing crib friends from all over the world.
Not only that, but for the first time organizing teams from three nations are allowed to design the 21st World Nativity Congress, also the expectation for visitors of many nations brought us to the motto ”
“The Crib unites us “.
So we hope to reach many people in our hectic times with this congress. Especially in the last few years it can be clearly felt that traditions no longer have the same significance as they used to be. But it is precisely the crib that is worth preserving, and even finding other followers who recognize how much the crib us unites and connects.
In consequence we say “Welcome to Euregion Meuse-Rhine Aachen”.
Aachen is a city that connects, because here lies a central point of the Euregion, that is home to many nations. A visit to the most important world cultural heritage, the Aachen Cathedral and the picturesque corners of the old town with its rustic restorations around the town hall invite you to linger.
We would be very happy, if many of you would have time on these days to show us that “The Crib unites us “.
