Hey everyone!

Sadly, our trip in 2020 had to be canceled due to the Covid restrictions. However, this year it can finally take place! We are going to visit a few international institutions and of course take an obligatory city tour. The 15€ per person already include our stay in a hostel.

Want to join us? Then apply by filling in this form.

See you soon!

Let's meet for drinks!

On the 14th of March we are meeting at Tappers Nijmegen to taste some craft beers. While discovering ome local and foreign beers, our old and new members will have the chance to get to know each other. We hope to see you all there!
