Welcome from the Lord Mayor
As Mayor of Munich, I supported the application to organise the EuroGames here in 2004 from the very beginning and am very pleased to take on the role of Patron.
There are many indicators of the tolerance and liberal community spirit that has come to characterise Munich. The vitality and the self-confidence with which the gay and lesbian community has established itself in our city is one of the most gratifying signs.
The volunteer organisers of EuroGames 2004 have set themselves challenging objectives: exciting sporting competitions with high standards at first class venues, a cultural programme which will give pleasure to our many visitors, a central "Rainbow Village" in the Olympic Park as a place for everyone to get together. I want to endorse the idea that the EuroGames 2004 in Munich are intended for a broader public as well as the lesbian and gay communities of Europe.
You can now register for the EuroGames 2004 in Munich. For a whole week in the summer of 2004 the EuroGames will transform the city and the Olympic Park into a showcase for Europe - fully in keeping with the motto of these EuroGames: "Munich s'ports the rainbow".
As the mayor of the city of Munich, the capital of Bavaria, I look forward to welcoming you personally at the opening ceremony on the 29th July.
Welcome from the General Manager of the
Dr. Gabriele Weishäupl
General Manager of the Munich Tourist Office
