Hey! It’s Easter! Just lying around at home? There’s a much better way to enjoy the long weekend! Let’s go to Dresden and explore this beautiful area called Sächsische Schweiz!
The plan is simple and incomplete: We’re gonna see each other in the morning of Apr. 2 at Düsseldorf Hbf. Then we’re gonna take a train according to the following schedule (feel free to join on the way if you live in the Ruhr area):
- Dep: 07:52 Düsseldorf Hbf – Platform 17 (ICE 845)
- Arr: 10:28 Hannover Hbf
- Dep: 10:36 Hannover Hbf (IC 2443)
- Arr: 14:34 Dresden Hbf – Platform 1
- Dep: 14:59 Dresden Hbf – Platform 13 (S 1)
- Arr: 15:21 Pirna – Platform 1
Then we’ll directly go to the airbnb, which I already booked for 10 people!
I haven’t made specific plans, but in principle we’ll go hiking and hopefully we can cook together in the evening in the apartment! Let’s see what it’s gonna look like.
Then on Monday (Apr. 5) we’ll take a train back to Düsseldorf according to the following schedule:
- Dep: 12:37 Pirna – Platform 1 (S 1)
- Arr: 12:58 Dresden Hbf – Platform 14
- Dep: 13:23 Dresden Hbf – Platform 3 (IC 2442)
- Arr: 17:23 Hannover Hbf
- Dep: 17:31 Hannover Hbf (ICE 846)
- Arr: 19:34 Essen Hbf – Platform 1
- Dep: 19:41 Essen Hbf – Platform 2 (ICE 823)
- Arr: 20:07 Düsseldorf Hbf – Platform 16
The participation is 210€ per person including airbnb and the train ticket – don’t transfer the money yet! As always, I got only 10 spots and there’s no clear rule for the registration. Just let me know if you’re interested.

Hey! Look outside! The sky is blue and the trees are so green! Let’s spend a great weekend with the coolest people you can think of! Over the weekend of Pfingsten (Pentecost), we’re gonna have a weekend trip to Nürnberg!
Here’s the plan: In the morning of May 22, we’ll see each other directly at the train station, maybe around 9am. Then we take the train according to the following schedule:
- Dep: 09:13 Düsseldorf Hbf – Platform 16 (ICE 621)
- Arr: 12:59 Nürnberg Hbf
We’ll then hike hopefully twice over the weekend. I started suggesting trails below, but feel free to think of other possibilities too. Since the city of Nuremberg is also quite interesting, we’ll probably also do sightseeing.
On May 24 we’ll take the train back to Düsseldorf following this schedule:
- Dep: 14:00 Nürnberg Hbf (ICE 626)
- Arr: 17:36 Düsseldorf Hbf – Platform 18
The participation totals 140€ per person including the apartment and the train journeys. Don’t transfer the money yet!

Hey! It’s summer! Let’s enjoy a great weekend in a beautiful house with a group of cool people! This time I’m proposing our very first snow hike at Bad Berleburg, which lies in the mountain ranges of Sauerland!
So the idea is simple: we’re gonna see each other at Bad Berleburg in the evening of Jun. 11. I booked a holiday house there and in principle up to 10 people can stay. It’s going to be probably 65€ per person for two nights (to be confirmed…). They also have a sauna for 50€ (i.e. 5€ per person?).
Hiking trails will be uploaded at some point :).
Updates will follow …
