Culture & Sports go hand in hand in Wetzlar

RSV visit Palais Papius
In Germany’s Wheelchair Basketball capital Wetzlar, sports and culture are in a mutually prolific relationship and belong together. This was highlighted again last Thursday when RSV visited the city of Wetzlar for the re-opening of Palais Papius.  
In the foreground stood the collection „European Home Décor during Renaissance and Baroque” of Wetzlar’s honorary citizen Irmgard von Lemmers-Danforth displaying exhibits of the 15th until 18th century. This collection is unique in Germany and Palais Papius has just been renovated and modernised at a cost of 6,7 Million Euros for this cause. The baroque palace from 1740 is now completely accessible, which players Joe Bestwick, Jan Haller and Bjoern Lohmann were able to test, as well as coach Nicolai Zeltinger and management members Sven Koeppe and Andreas Joneck. 
RSV were welcomed by councillor Sigrid Kornmann and Mayor Wolfram Dette, who also congratulated the team on their tenth German Championship.
