     Dear guests of the Oberkirch,                   • Music Festivals In Our Region, Summer 2019 (pages 3-7)

     (previously pure) summer edition of
     our magazine also features a part of                • (Rubber) Duck Race In The Dreisam (page 6)
     the autumn.                                         • JugendKunstParkour And "Music Day" (page 7)

     This change is happening for the fact               • 44th Rathaushofspiele (page 8)
     that - apart from the Theater Freiburg              • 4th Freiburger Choir Night (page 9)

     later every year. Also the Christmas            • OrganMagic & CulinaryDelight (page 10)
     Markets are announcing their exact              • Wine Festivals In Our Region - August/September 2019 (page 12)
     dates and their special activities later            • Jazz Festival Freiburg
     than they used to and in our opinion            • Freiburg Alive - Available All Year Long (page 13)
     a magazine full of "to be announced"            • New: Private Shopping Day - A Relaxed Form Of Shopping (page 14)
     would not make real sense.

     So the autumn-winter edition of our             • ChanterelleWeeks - Enjoy In The Oberkirch (page 16)
