My name is Ondrej Holan, I come from the Czech Republic and I am a volunteer (formerly known as the European Voluntary Service, now part of the European Solidarity Corps) in CGE Erfurt.
Dear volunteers and great people of Thuringia! Do you want to experience a winter fairy tale? ❄️ Join us, we have an idea you might like! 😉
Winter Has Come to Thuringia! The forecast predicts to have extraordinary frost in the last days of February, so the CGE team decided to use the last warmth of the upcoming weekend and go to the fantastic town of Oberhof!
Oberhof is known to be is a winter sports center and health resort. The town has hosted many world and European championships in luge. It’s definitely worth visiting and enjoying in winter, since it provides various facilities for luge, nordic skiing, and ski jumping.
Not convinced? Take a look, what does the webcams from the venue show 📷. It’s a winter fairy tale!
Start packing your things. The instructions are following:
📍 Meeting Point – Erfurt Hbf (next to the benches)
⏰ Time – 09:00
We will go by train and buy a “Thüringen Ticket” for 5 persons for the whole day.
🎿 The costs are still in the process of calculating, but it’s estimated to be composed of ski pass (±10€) and equipment rent (±15-17€). We will also try to ask our friends to provide some of the accessories.
☕️ Drinks and snacks should be prepared in advance. CGE will get some of the good stuff to keep us warm 😁
If you have any question, please, contact our organiser Marina Bykova to take care of your concerns.
Bis bald, dears! 😘
