Informal Germanophonic meeting 2015

16-17 September 2015

King Philippe & queen Mathilde flew to Zürich, Switzerland on Wednesday.

In Vaduz, Liechtenstein, they were met by crown prince Aloïs of Liechtenstein and his wife, crown princess Sophie (duchess in Bavaria). Philippe & Mathilde spent the night at their home, the castle of Vaduz.

As a gift they brought fine Belgian chocolates from Neuhaus.

Mathilde spoke English to Aloïs & Sophie. 

The next day they participated in the annual meeting of the heads of state of German speaking countries in Vaduz, Liechtenstein.

While the heads of state talked about the digital era & employment, their spouses visited an eco building carpentry workshop...

(Mathilde was not accompanied by a lady-in-waiting, but she was asisted by an interpreter.) 

... and the association "Neues Lernen" that develops German language courses for newcomers.

Afterwards everybody had lunch and visited the Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein.

Next year the meeting will take place in Belgium, for the first time.
