Hi. I am planning to visit Taize in June 2008 and this will be my first time in Europe. Is there a schedule/guiding tour for visitors during that period to which I can subscribe? How about accomodation? Is it better to stay outside the community or does the community has available rooms for rent.. Thanks for your help, as I am really looking forward visiting Taize this summer. Chantal
We (a couple) shall be visiting Taize in mid-June for a week, and are planning visiting various towns and villages from Lyon to Taize via L'arbres.e and Macon by trains. Does anyone know any interesting places to visit along this route? Any reliable and clean accommodation? Thanks!
Since I am a "mature" adult, I'm wondering if older adults can attend Taize workshops or attend the chanting services offered. Also does one need to stay in Taize a certain amount of days in order to truly benefit from the experience? Thank you very much. suzanne
The Welcome Team has implied that we (3) are "requested not to leave the camp" while we are staying with them...we want to be a part of the community but since this is our 1st time in Burgundy Region, we want to 'explore' our surroundings when we feel that we want to slip away in our rental car. Do you see any objections to this? was the WT's suggestion only a suggestion or do they 'frown' upon comings/goings (reasonably, of course) of the pilgrims????
A friend and I are planning to visit taize around the 24-31st March for Easter Holidays. We have been going through loads of stress and desperatly need a break from it all. I have heard taize is a beautiful quiet place but most people have been during quiet months and did not think us wise to go for the EASTER holidays. My friend is a teacher so can only go now, has anyone been during this time? please what are your opinions?
