Germany: Wanderversammlung No. 83

stempe32.jpg (16818 Byte)

The biennial congress of German speaking beekeepers from Germany, Austria. Italy, Switzerland and Luxemburg took place in Arnstadt, Germany on August 19-22, 2004. 

It was the 83th congress and of course there is a commemorative postmark with hive, a flying bee and comb.

There was a special reason to organize the congress at Arnstadt. In this place the first "Wanderversammlung" was held in 1850. The congress building for this first meeting is printed on a cover. Interesting for a topical collector. 

But unfortunately the cover is not postal stationery.
