Councillor Dave Taylor says, "I'd been treated to such a welcoming reception when visiting Münster as Lord Mayor to plan for the 60th anniversary of the twinning of our two cities, that I wanted to show our visitors some of the best of York in return."
A reception held at Barley Hall, (pictured above, bottom) was one highlight when the visitors met representatives from the York-Münster Association and had a tour of the fascinating timber-framed medieval building, as well as tours of the city centre and The New Walk and Rowntree Park.
"Naturally, we also wanted to talk about environmental issues," continued Councillor Taylor, "and so we took a look around the revamped Foss Barrier and discussed climate change and natural flood management measures with The Environment Agency."
The visit ended with sharing food at a barbecue in conjunction with "York For Europe" and some good-humoured banter whilst watching the Eurovision Song Contest at St. Nick's Environment Centre.
