Time & Location
About The Event
In Collaboration with CEMS Club Cologne, CEMS Club Rotterdam Presents
Carnival in Cologne !!!
***Event reserved to CEMS Students***
Are you interested in a day of culturally immersing into the traditional carnival cult of Cologne? Are you prepared for locals -no matter of which age- wearing costumes, drinking Kölsch and throwing candy in the streets of THE carnival hotspot within the carnival region? If you are curious what Cologne has to offer as a city and if you are looking to spend a fun day drinking and socializing with other CEMSies, join our legendary Carnival in Cologne trip on Saturday March 2nd, 2019.
During our bus ride departing from Rotterdam to Cologne we will prepare you with fun facts and all you need to know for your upcoming stay, which is followed by a get-together with the CEMS Club Cologne. A traditional breakfast is waiting for you at the University of Cologne. You will be served Mettbrötchen (bread rolls with minced meat and onions) as well as beer, coffee and non-alcoholic drinks. For those of you who are vegetarian or have plans to give a “Bützje” (kiss) to a local or other CEMSie later on, a vegetarian option is considered.
At 13:00 you can either join a carnival party at a student café nearby, organized by the local student union, or a city walking tour (panorama viewpoint platform, Dome, oldtown). In the afternoon we all mix and mingle again to celebrate together before we board the bus to return back to Rotterdam in the evening at 21:00.
The bus for one way costs €35.
The bus for both ways costs €45.
The traditional breakfast organized with CEMS Club Cologne costs €5.
The entrance fee to the party after the breakfast is €5. The party is the A option. The tour is the B option (if you choose the tour, you can join the party afterwards, as the tour will not take more than 2h). The price of the tour is whatever you pay for public transportation to the city centre (around 1.5€) and around 2.5€ if you want to go up to the viewpoint.
