Family reunion 1994 and 2009

Unfortunately an official film from the Naeffenfest 1994 was missing until to day. But Béla Király from Budapest offered his private clips to add to our database! Using those we cut an official film for 1994 and a "bonus" of five small clips about the city guided tour and the apéro on the castle Grünenstein. Thank you very much, Béla!


Live through the memories of past celebrations again: The museum, the train ride, celebration in the Woods, performances, the play, lunch barbeque and dinner, the family trees, dancing, people and conversations!

1979 war ein völlig durchnässtes Familienfest, nur kurz war man im Wald, den Festakt und den Zigeuner gab’s dann im Sonnensaal. Der platzte aus allen Nähten und wir fragten uns, wie das so weitergehen könne.


2004 fand das Familienfest bei schönstem Wetter und nur im Wald und auf der Wiese (mit Festzelt) statt.
