Cologne (Köln) Christmas market in the fourth-largest city in Germany is our unofficial mission that cannot be missed. It is sooo popular that hostels are becoming full before Christmas just as before the Strasbourg plenary session in December! Therefore, everyone interested in having an unforgettable time together there before Christmas, please register by sending an email (stating your NAME, SURNAME, EMAIL and TEL.NR.) to firstname.lastname@example.org before 7th November 12:00.
