This weekend, 36 EPCS students and 4 staff have embarked upon an epic adventure to Cologne for the first weekend of their Christmas markets! Today, we explored three different markets, buying various Christmas presents and sampling all manner of weird and wonderful German food. Some of us went ice skating and others climbed the 500 steps to the top of Cologne Cathedral! We were rewarded with great views across the city. It has been very cold – the temperature peaked at 1 degree! A great time has been had so far by all and tomorrow, we are heading to explore the markets at Aachen on our way back home! Find a few photos below of what we have been up to.
