Curious how the 'Mekelweg' looked back in the day? This photo from 1969 is made from the north of our campus. The Mekel Road was officially closed for motorized private transport at the beginning of 2007. A historic moment. During sunny days, the park provides an enjoyable meeting place for the international community of teachers and students! #Mekelpark #ThrowbackThursday
