I have a brownie moving to southern Germany and see on the bgifc website that there are units in southern Germany but does anyone know where they are and how to find out more about them?

also is there a scouting equivalent of bgifc?

thanks

I just tried finding a place for Flossie Jones in Paderborn ( cos I know BGIFC are there) through Join Us and it let me do it even with a fictitous address, giving me the BGIFC units

So maybe try that if Brownie knows the town.

thanks everyone. looks like munich is the nearest place with guiding and scouting units are only in the north, wikipedia reckons there are 150 different scout and guide associations and federations in germany though so might look local!

BGIFC Units

The best way to find out where there are units in BGIFC is to contact our Administrator, Jane Sheridan at CHQ, you can find her email on the BGIFC website. I certainly know that there were units in Munich, and that Germany is a County ( BGIG ) known as British Guides in Germany.

I'm a Guide leader and DC for Munich.
We have 2 Brownie units here in Munich, one central/south-east and at BIS (Bavarian International School).
Otherwise there's a Brownie unit near Stuttgart.
As far as I know there are no other units in Southern Germany - where were you looking for ?
