Dear international students,

have you ever heard of Thuringia? We want to explore three of the most beautiful cities of this state with you and therefore organized a weekend trip to Erfurt, Weimar and Jena.

Not only the capital of Thuringia, Erfurt, offers a lot to see, but also Weimar and Jena are historical cities and offer a lot of sights to explore!

Our trip will start on Friday, May 6th, with our journey to Erfurt, where we will have a guided tour through the historic city center and the
famous Petersberg fortress . In the evening we will check out the pubs and clubs and enjoy the nightlife.
On Saturday our journey goes on to Weimar, the place where two of the most famous German writers were creative: Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and Friedrich Schiller. A guided tour through the old town will teach you about the city’s history as well as about the life of Schiller and Goethe. Furthermore, we will follow the traces of Germany’s Nazi Past: we will visit the KZ Buchenwald, which is close to Weimar (this visit is voluntary!).
On the same day our journey goes on to Jena, where we will review the day during a typical Thuringian dinner before discovering the nightlife of Jena with a Pub Crawl, organized by our dear friends of ESN Jena.
On Sunday we will get to know the city and visit the planetarium before going back to Halle in the afternoon.

The trip will take place from May 6th to 8th 2016. The participation fee of 45€ (42€ with ESNcard) includes transportation, the guided city tours, the Hostels (including breakfast and bedding) as well as the entrance to the planetarium and the Jena Tower.

Sign up for the trip until April 17th 2016:
