Leisure activities

In addition to the regular course program, we will offer a range of optional activities. These include, for example, excursions and social events and are the perfect possibility to get to know other Summer School students as well as your professors. Besides our own program, you will have the chance to attend leisure events organized by VISUM allowing you to meet students beyond our Summer School group as well.

The participation is voluntary, but we strongly recommend joining as many activities as possible, since you will meet students from Mannheim and all over the world while getting to know Mannheim, its region and German culture.

Here and on Facebook we will constantly keep you informed about further details of our program of leisure activities.
