Here you can find the different options for social activities.

 

All participants will recieve an E-Mail with a link to a form. You can select you favourite Social Activity, but it's also fine if you do not want to participate in an Acitivity. Please fill out the form anyways, since it also asks if you want to participate in the pub crawl. This information will help us plan accordingly.

Please note, that the fees are paid in cash on site and not in advance. The fees might vary, depending on the number of people registering for that activity. Therefore, we can yet only provide a price range.

We are looking forward to some fun activities!
