Dr. Alexander Badrow (Mayor of the Hanseatic City of Stralsund)

Dear Guests of the Hanseatic City of Stralsund, as the Mayor I am delighted that our city is going to host the Veterans Fencing World Championships 2016 and would like to express my gratitude for choosing Stralsund for this special event.

Being a dedicated recreational athlete myself I can totally relate to your passion for fencing. As a Mayor, on the other hand, I particularly value sport for its potential to build bridges between people and between countries.
Dear Guests, I would like to motivate you for successful duels in 2016 as well as send you on a journey to a pearl of the Baltic Sea with a past shimmering as lively as its present.

During your stay drift through Stralsund’s historic city with its listed brick-built parish churches, monasteries, gates and Gothic gabled houses which, as a surface monument, is a representative example for the cultural heritage of the Hanseatic League as well as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2002.
Discover Swedish rule at the sight of impressive Baroque buildings and follow the former sea route of hundreds of loaded cogs flying the flag of Stralsund at the harbour.
On the harbour island dockside warehouses and the OZEANEUM, Europe’s museum of the year 2010, also display Stralsund’s successful symbiosis between historical and modern architecture.
Dear Fencers from all over the world, we proudly look forward to hosting the Veterans Fencing World Championships 2016 and to your participation. We warmly welcome you to our city!
Dr.-Ing. Alexander Badrow
Mayor of the Hanseatic City of Stralsund
