What sort of person feels readily at home in Laubegast?
The sort of people my wife and I meet in our Bergtrolle shop and Breitengrad club: open‑minded, tolerant, friendly and with a strong sense of belonging. Tolerance and a love of one’s home town or region go hand in hand as far as I am concerned. For many years now, I have been an extreme mountaineer, also travelling through jungle and desert terrains. But I can only do that because I have a base here in Laubegast, where I feel rooted and where I know everyone. Well, almost everyone.
If Laubegast were a person, what would be its distinguishing features?
Generous, wise and yet inquisitive. And helpful.
