Re: Experiences with Vereins / Clubs
How did I find my club ? I just googled the name of the village and 'Musikverein'. You can check the local newspaper too, there is a calendar with the days of rehearsal of several Vereins. They also advertise for their activities and invite newcomers.
And then there is a local calendar which we receive yearly, with all the names and adresses of the several local Vereins, together with informations about schools, trash collection etc. Perhaps you can check with your Gemeinde.
And then there was an invitation for all the newcomers in the Gemeinde, a reception, and local Vereins could come and introduce themselves to the newcomers. We had a demonstration of the local Jodelclub.
