Welcome to the website of the
Pommerscher Verein Freistadt!
 
We are glad you came to visit. 
Please stay awhile.
Be sure to explore the links in
the red bar on the left.
 
 
Coronavirus update:  Unfortunately, with the pandemic affecting
everyday life in such a dramatic way, the tour to Pomerania
scheduled for this spring has been cancelled.
The brochure is still posted as a download on the red bar at the left
for your information, because a similar tour will be rescheduled for 2021.
If you are waiting for a refund, they will be mailed out the first two weeks in June.  The delay is because the tour office is in Illinois and the workers are not "essential," so they can't process the checks until after June 1 when they are allowed back in the office.

Sheepshead is postponed until September.

Sad News: Unfortunately, Pommerntag, our outdoor summer festival scheduled for June 28, has been cancelled for 2020 due to the global pandemic. 
Look for the 45th Pommerntag to return in 2021.

Tour of Pomerania

                                                                             
The Pomeranian Heritage Tour Group gathered in front of the
Pommersches Landesmuseum in Greifswald, Germany in May 2017.
The museum specializes in the history of Pomerania.
Tours of northern Germany and Poland, in what was once Pomerania,
were most recently conducted in May 2015 and May 2017. Enjoy some photos of the trips below.
