Learning German at the Carl Duisberg Training Center Cologne means more than just attending a course. Get to know the city of Cologne with its diverse cultural and leisure activities together with the other language course participants. Take one of our guided tours through the old town and historical district. Experience Cologne’s long history of arts and culture in museums that have traditional roots, but also promote contemporary art.
Group Activities for Participants
The team at Carl Duisberg Centrum Cologne organizes a diverse range of activities for course participants each week, in which students explore Cologne, make friends and practice German outside the classroom. The organized activities are included within the program (apart from travel expenses or entrance fees).
There are many activities from which to choose, including visits to museums, sporting events, guided tours and meals with participants from all over the world.
As a newcomer to Cologne, you will probably first want to discover the city and its surroundings. You can get a first overview on our guided tours, e.g. through the old town and the pub district. And as long as you don't understand German very well yet, the explanations are also available in English or French.
Cologne is an art metropolis with interesting exhibitions of old and modern art in many museums. Join a guided tour. There is hardly another city where 2,000 years of history are so tangible. Everywhere you go, you will find evidence of Roman times and the Middle Ages.
Sports and Excursions
We often organize group barbecues and picnics in one of the many parks in Cologne during the summer. We also take short bicycle tours along the Rhine and offer half-day or full-day excursions, e.g. a Rhine river cruise, wine tasting in the Moselle or Ahr region or visits to surrounding cities. We also organize trips to neighboring countries several times a year, e.g. the Netherlands or Belgium.
