OH DEER - WINTER'S HERE!
AEGEE-Bamberg is back and invites you to celebrate the winter season in Franconian style!
Have you ever been to a real Christmas market? Did you ever taste “Glühwein” or “Feuerzangenbowle”? You always wanted to know where the gingerbread comes from? And what Christmas traditions Germans have? Apply now - we will show and teach you all of it!
AEGEE-BAMBERG will take you and 20 friends from all over Europe on a journey through winterly Franconia in Bavaria. You will be based in Bamberg, one of the oldest and most beautiful cities in Germany. The old town of Bamberg belongs to the UNESCO world heritage due to reasons: crooked buildings, centuries-old churches, a city hall built on water and little Venice are waiting for you. On top of that you will find the highest beer diversity worldwide, have you for example ever been drinking a smoked beer? Don’t worry, you will, and you will also experience typical Franconian food and the Franconian landscape. AEGEE-Bamberg takes you on a trip to Nuremberg, the city where gingerbread comes from and you will enjoy the most famous Christmas market in Europe: Christkindlmarkt Nuremberg.
A various program awaits you, including e.g.:
Different Christmas markets with Glühwein and Feuerzangenbowle, a typical German Christmas party, a day in the Franconian wildness, Ice skating, Weißwurst Breakfast, visit of a gingerbread manufacturer, an evening at a brewery, typical Bavarian beer including the famous smoked beer, party games at Bamberg's oldest student bar and one night at Schwof (be excited!).
AEGEE-Bamberg provides you with two meals everyday. We won’t serve you pasta but typical and traditional German food.
You and the other AEGEEans will stay at the backpacker hostel Bamberg, a perfectly located accommodation in the heart of Bamberg. You don’t have to worry about an air mattress or bed sheets, normal beds and bathrooms are waiting for you.
What are we looking for? Our perfect participant is open minded, engaged to meet new people and motivated to take a deep dive into German Christmas culture, including special food and at least ten different types of alcohol. We will show you how Germans are celebrating the Christmas season and we expect you to participate - don’t be shy. ;-)
Due to German Covid-19 restrictions we can only accept people who are fully vaccinated (with a certificate) or at the time of the event recovered from Covid-19 (with a certificate - be aware that a recovery is valid for 6 months in Germany).
