**********



*****Hotel already booked for some people: Hotel Domspitzen booked via HRS*****


FRIDAY EVENING:
20:00 at Peters Brauhaus (Mühlengasse 1). We meet directly at (in) the Brauhaus, tables are reserved for "Postcrossing"



FOR SATURDAY/MEETING DAY:
Meeting point: Top of the stairs that lead up to the Cathedral, coming from downstairs on the righthand side. It's the stairs you can see from the main station, not the ones in front of the Cathedral!!!



10am: Meeting time for those who want to go into the Cathedral (Dom) and maybe go up the tower

11am: Meeting time for all
- Walk around the city centre, along souvenir shops, the WDR shop (there they have cards and other thingsfrom "Die Sendung mit der Maus", Krtek, Shaun the Sheep... Not cheap but nice things) and the Postkartenladen, a shop that has a wide variety of non-touristic postcards
- At 2pm lunch buffet at the La Gazetta at the Lindner Hotel (~10€ per person, drinks extra) and excessive postcard writing/signing
Cards will be kept in stacks with rubber bands and post-its and then will just be forwarded as complete packs instead of passing on the cards individually after signing
Gift lottery: Bring a small gift (something touristy from your country/region/city or something related to postcrossing). All gifts are put on a table and all names go in a basket. *Someone* as the showmaster will present the lottery as each one who wins a gift draws a new name.


SUNDAY:
a) daytrip out of Köln:

- Taking the train to Koblenz at 9:30/10:00 (takes ~1:40h)

- explore the city center a bit, see the "Deutsches Eck" where the Mosel joins the Rhine and grab some lubch somewhere

- at 2pm we take the ship up the Rhine to Braubach (~1h)

- there we go uphill from the boat to the Marksburg (medieval castle) - about 30 minutes to walk, at 4pm there's a guided tour in English (the castle can only be visited in such a guided tour), deutsche Führungen gibt es öfter

- depending on our mood and the weather we can do a bit of sightseeing in Braubach, a historic little town

- there's a train back to Koblenz and from there to Köln every hour

Day-trip on Sunday, these are the ones that confirmed it:

9teen87
anjaaustel
azzurri
carolisha
Dollart
geminiscp
Kilona
leugim
Martinha
roos
Tjitske
Violanie59

Didn't get a definite answer of those yet (so maybe...):
dandilion
isagv
Mondfalke
ninta


Costs for train ticket (group ticket for 5 persons valid all day), boat tour and castle:
~25€ per person (depends a bit on how many we'll be)





b) doing something in Köln
- Schokoladenmuseum (chocolate museum)
- visiting the zoo


MONDAY MORNING:
- Visit the zoo

I'll try to join you in Cologne! For the small trip I would definitely recommend Bonn - I just don't know whether I'll still live there in April... Anyway it might be worth a visit, just as the castle in Brühl (UNESCO site ;)) which is right in between.
