The Oxford Cambridge Rheinland Alumni Group (Germany) invites the Belgian Cambridge and Oxford Societies on Sunday December 9th to join them on a visit of the old town of Cologne and its Christmas Market . It will be a great opportunity to get to know this beautiful town with its rich history, as well as meet Oxbridge Alumni from 'next door'.

The preliminary programme is as follows (more details nearer the time):

9:30hrs board the high speed train together at Gare de Midi and share the Sunday papers;

11:15hrs draw into Köln central station in the shadow of its unique gothic cathedral and stretch our legs in the neighbouring squares before

If we book early enough, we may get a group discount for the Thalys. So if you are interested, please register asap with myself (camsoc.be@gmail.com), with copy to Christian Langkamp (Christian.langkamp@gmxpro.de) Chairman of the Oxford Cambridge Rheinland Alumni Group.
