The very BEST source for Eutin information, and about the history of the Eutin exchange is maintained by the KU German Department, the Max Kade Center, and the Friends of Eutin here: EUTIN INFORMATION
Eutin (pronounced oy-teen), located east of Hamburg, between Lubeck and Kiel in northern Germany, was founded as a colonial settlement in 1143. Because of its surroundings and its proximity to the Baltic coast, Kiel, Lubeck and Copenhagen, the town is particularly attractive to tourists. It is also known as the "City of Roses."
One feature of this relationship is an annual exchange between high school students where Lawrence students live in Eutin for five to six weeks with a host family and host an Eutin student for a similar duration in exchange.
The Friends of Eutin and KU German Department host an excellent web site which provides much useful information about the Lawrence-Eutin relationship. In addition to general Eutin information, the site provides history about the high school exchange program, and information about other cultural exchanges between Eutin and Lawrence.
The official web site of Eutin may be viewed here.
The Eutin-based Friends of Lawrence also has a good site providing information about Lawrence for German visitors.
Eutin High School Exchange
Each summer about approximately ten Lawrence high school youth participate in an four to five week exchange. Lawrence students live in homes with Eutin high school students, and attend Eutin Schools. In exchange, the Eutin students spend approximately the same amount of time in Lawrence.
