Invitation to the 57th Baltic Nations Kommers

Dear Members,
Dear Members, We kindly invite you to participate at the meeting of the Baltic nations, the 57th Baltic Nations Kommers form May 13th to May 15th 2022 in Heidelberg. The Kommers takes place at the location it had taken place for three decades annually until 1993.

This Kommers has always been held in the spirit of the bond between European Nations. Since the opening of the borders 30 years ago, a strong belief in the European Union and in the ability of nations and people to reach mutual understanding has expanded across the continent. Students’ societies in the Baltic states, Poland and Germany have always been a driving force in this development – politically, economically, and societally.

History of the Baltic Nations Commers

After they were resettled in 1939, many Baltic Germans felt the desire to keep up regular contact with their compatriots now living spread out all over the world. As such, in the early 60s, they began to hold an annual gathering, known as a “Kommers” (German: Kommers, Polish: Komers, Latvian: Komeršs, Estonian: Kommerss) in order to keep up and pass on Baltic traditions. The original venue was Heidelberg Castle.
