„Kohlfahrt“ a north-west German tradition

Munich hosts the Oktoberfest, Cologne the carnival and Oldenburg the Kohlfahrt. This traditional fun activity dates back to the Oldenburger Turnerbund (Oldenburg Gymnastics Association) and has become an indispensable part of Oldenburg.

Equipped with a trolley with games, drinks and music, we will set off with you into the Oldenburg surroundings. We will be out walking for about 2-3 hours pulling the trolley, playing games typical of the region and having a fun time together. Afterwards we will pause at the guesthouse and eat a vegetarian “Kohl” (kale) dish or lentil soup, warm up and let the day come to an end.

Meeting point is on 18.02. at 13:30 at the SSC (A12). Some water and soft drinks will be provided. Drinks that you bring with you can be stored in the trolley as long as there is enough space. We kindly ask you to refrain from hard alcohol, but non-alcoholic drinks, beer or wine are welcome.

Since we will be outside for some time before heading to the guest house for the meal, we recommend to bring warm jackets and not to come with an empty stomach ;)
