AEGEE-Eindhoven is coming into town!

The whole exchange crew

From the 20th of October to the 22nd of October we had some visitors from AEGEE-Eindhoven in our town. When they arrived on friday in the afternoon, we welcomed them with a typical – zünftig – German Dinner – Maultaschen!

Later in the evening we went out for a Pub Crawl to a few popular bars in Mannheim. One of it being „Filmriss“ (hangover in English, it really meets its name!!) or Nelson and played drinking games to get to know each other.

Nachdem AEGEE-Mannheim das letzte Mal 2014 eine SU veranstaltet hatte und mehrere unserer Mitglieder AEGEE-Heidelberg bei ihrer SU 2016 aushalfen, lag es deshalb nicht fern, dieses Jahr sich zusammen zu tun und eine gemeinsame SU zu organisieren!
