Every two years the town of Eutin is host to a two days lasting festival. During that weekend, Eutin presents plays, booths, bards of the bygone medieval, knights on horses, ladies and gents of the baroque, wild slavs, and casts of the Garde-Grenadier-Regiment of the Prussian Army. Eutin then does awesomely rise various epochs again while hosting that event.
The town is located in Germany's northern state of Schleswig-Holstein. As of 2005, it had some 17.000 inhabitants. The originally Slavonic settlement (Utin) was populated in the 12th century by Dutch settlers. In 1156 Eutin became a market town. City rights were granted in the year 1257. It would later become the seat of the Prince-Bishopric of Luebeck, as Luebeck itself was an imperial free city. When the bishopric was secularized in 1803, Eutin became part of the Duchy of Oldenburg. As a result of the Greater Hamburg Act of 1937, Eutin passed from the Free State of Oldenburg to the Prussian Province of Schleswig-Holstein.

No wonder this beautiful town is called City of Roses. Visitors will be fascinated by Eutin's charm. While we were strolling around the area, we were lucky to pass by the Pomerania Museum, Heimat Museum Neustettin in Pommern, which I had like to visit since my dad was born in Strzmiele earlier Wulfsberg in Pomerania. But it was closed by that hour of the day. Eventually we also made a guided tour at the Eutin Castle.

- Cons:Can't think of any.
- In a nutshell:Eutin is the sister city of Lawrence in Kansas.
