German Christmas Evening

2019-12-12

Experience the magic of traditional German “Weihnachten” with us!

Dear international PhD students,
Postdocs, Visiting Scientists and
friends of our Welcome Center,

we would like to invite you to a very merry Christmas event!

Smell the scent of freshly baked biscuits, enjoy a cup of mullded red wine while your kids learn how to craft little Christmas ornaments. Feel at home in the sparkling lights of the traditional Christmas tree with typical “Lametta”, carol singing and some other surprises we’ve prepared for you – because in Germany, there can be no Christmas without a little “Heimlichkeit” (secrecy)!

Bring your children and friends with you and join in our traditional “Weihnachtsfeier” – just like we celebrate Christmas in our families. Exchanging little presents is of course a very important part of the Christmas feeling, so we’d like to invite you to bring a nicely wrapped gift (average value of 5 Euros) which will be hidden under the Christmas tree and passed out during the event.

Please send us a short reply via email whether you’d like to join our German “Weihnachten” and if you’d like to bring your partner and/or children and if you want to bring a gift.

We can’t wait to celebrate this magical season with you!
