Excursion to East Germany 2014

September 2014 – The new SPRING batch 2014/15 discovered German culture and history on a three-day excursion to East Germany as part of the German language course that prepares the students for their stay in Dortmund.


Under the guidance of Dr. Elmar Winters-Ohle the students explored the history of Wartburg (UNESCO world heritage) and followed the traces of Johannes Sebastian Bach in Eisenach by listening to a live music performance on historical instruments. In Leipzig the students were able to experience the cultural rich city by a guided tour and the Asisi’s impressive 360° panorama showing Leipzig in the aftermath of the Battle of Nations in 1813. The poets’ homes of Goethe and Schiller were the destinations in Weimar, before the students visited the former concentration camp Buchenwald. The trip was highlighted by watching a firework in Jena at the JenTower.
