Klaus and Gesine Mehnert of Radolfzell, Germany, visited Guttenberg for a couple of weeks in the summer of 2010. They were travelling with their son Axel, his wife Jennifer and their three children, all of whom live in Reichenau, Germany.  Jennifer is the daughter of Jim and Lee Johnston of South River Park Drive, Guttenberg.

Klaus and Gesine were fascinated by the German settlement story of Guttenberg and particularly the possible naming tie to the Gutenberg Bible.  They visited the Gutenberg Bible copy in the Guttenberg Library and the replica press in city hall.
