Anholt Castle

Following intensive preparatory work, 10 border regions set up a Standing Conference of European Border Regions on 17-18 June 1971 at Anholt Castle (EUREGIO). Alfred Mozer was elected President and Georg Wiek became its Secretary.

The Conference chose to call itself the “Association of European Border Regions (AEBR)”.

Further information can be found in the section “History of AEBR” and in AEBR’s publication “Cooperation of European Border Regions – Review and Perspectives”, published in 2008 (order form for download).
