Many worthwhile paths lead past here. Benches with a table invite you to rest and pause. On balmy summer evenings people like to meet here and sometimes music is still played here. Next date is June 24 at 20:00 clock with hits by Udo Jürgens. The singing is organized by the church choir Cäcilia Born. You can find more Trérmine on the homepage of the choir
