Germany 1 July: border Czech Republic - Germany - Dresden

back in Germany

The Peace Run returns to Germany! A group of Czech runners carried the torch to the border...

...back in Germany! A final group picture with our Czech runners. A big hand and our gratitude for the great hospitality and friendship we have experienced over the last week in Czech republic!

...local architecture...

...a scenic run towards Dresden...

...we reached Pirna, a truly beautiful city...

The clock didn't show Summer time: it was actually three - thirty in the afternoon....

...we reached the main square and the mayor welcomed our team...

Thank you for the welcome!

...a few symbolic steps...

...and the mayor passes the troch to one of a group of runners, who set up a local relay through the old part of the town...

...well deserved sweets...

...the kids joined us on our way out of Pirna...

..and we reached the city hall in Heidenau.

The mayor received our team and guided us up the steps to the city hall...

Thank you for the meeting!

...a problem with one of our Vans slowed us down...

...the whole team chilled out...

Finally we reached Dresden. Time to blow out the torch. Thank you for the nice day!
