Built around 1150, Burg Rieneck has been owned by Verband Christlicher Pfadfinderinnen und Pfadfinder for over 60 years. It's been used as a children's holiday home and a military hospital.
PfAU (pronounced “fow”) is the relatively new German equivalent of SSAGO and part of the VCP German Scout movement. What better way of showing them how cool SSAGO is by doing so first hand.
SSAGO’s international trip, called Witan (Anglo Saxon for “meeting of the wise”), started in 1959 as a way to build international friendships. There's been Witan's all over the world, from Gilwell to Canada.
Check out this video from when Keele SSAGO went to Burg Rieneck in 2019.
