The TVK on tour
Since 1957, the “Schlitzerländer Trachten- und Volkstanzkreis” is participating in international meetings, representing both the town of Schlitz and Schlitzerland, as well as the state of Hesse and the Federal Republic of Germany.
The former Deputy Minister of State of Hesse, Minister for Economic Affairs and Arts in Hesse, Ruth Wagner, commented as follows on the "Schlitzerländer Trachten- und Volkstanzkreis":
"The members of the Schlitzerländer Trachten- und Volkstanzkreis and its friends and supporters vitalize the growing together of the European Union and the international understanding. The encounters that take place, the mutual understanding and the exchange across national borders are invaluable for a peaceful coexistence in Europe. Whenever you travel around the world as a Hessian, you do that as diplomates in folkloric costumes."
