US Consul General Timothy Liston visits Rothenburg ob der Tauber
US Consul General Timothy Liston, who was invited by the German-American Society and the city of Rothenburg, came to visit the old town on September 7, 2022. Maria Zylka-Eistert and Günther Schuster received him on the market place and accompanied him to the Kaisersaaal of the town house, where he was officially welcomed by Lord Mayor Dr. Markus Naser and the mayors Kurt Förster and Dieter Kölle. He signed the Golden Book of the town and was also very pleased when he was informed of the Lord Mayor's intention to establish strong connections to St. Augustine, Florida, a historic little town showing many similarities to Rothenburg. After a short tour around the town and dinner, Timothy Liston also met Harald Wohlfahrt at the Christmas Village.
