Maiwanderung – Nature, Drinks & BBQ

When: Monday, May 01, 2017 at 11:45 am

Where: International Students in Siegen – INS², Siegen, Germany, 57068

GERMAN version below!

Dear (international) students,
it’s a German custom to celebrate the beginning of spring and the first rays of sunlight. In some parts of the Republic it is common to put up a Maibaum (may tree) in front of the house of a loved one. We would love to give you the opportunity to take part in one tradition which is called Maiwanderung: a walk (including beer) to a destination where a barbecue and drinks are waiting. Our route is around 6 km and starts at Edeka in Achenbach (-the shop will be CLOSED as 1 May is a holiday). A member of INS² will be waiting at Siegen ZOB to take a bus with you at noon. The bus 112 departs opposite of Bar Celona/City Galerie. Please be there at 11:45! You can take a bus back to Siegen every hour at :45, the last one leaves at 22:45.

What to bring: We provide 1-2 bottles of beer per person, so please bring everything else you need – that is drinks and what you’re eating. We provide bread and salads, however, you should bring meat, vegetables, or cheese for the BBQ. Please note that SHOPS are CLOSED on 1 May!!
———————————————————–

Hallo, liebe (internationalen) Studierenden!

In Deutschland ist es üblich, dass wir am ersten Mai den Beginn des Frühlings und der wärmeren Jahreszeit feiern. Dies wird regional auf unterschiedliche Weisen gefeiert. So feiert man es zum Beispiel in Süddeutschland und im Rheinland, indem man einen Maibaum aufstellt und diesen schmückt. Üblicher ist es jedoch, den Beginn des Frühlings mit einer Wanderung durch die Natur und einem anschließenden BBQ zu feiern. Während der Wanderung wird üblicher Weise schon Bier getrunken. International Students in Siegen e.V. lädt euch daher herzlich ein, an einer Wanderung mit anschließendem Grillen teilzunehmen!
Unsere Strecke ist etwa 6 km lang und wir starten am Edeka in Achenbach (- das Geschäft hat GESCHLOSSEN, da der 1. Mai ein Feiertag ist!). Wir fahren mittags gemeinsam mit euch mit dem Bus 112 dorthin. Der Bus fährt gegenüber der Bar Celona/City Galerie ab. Bitte seid spätestens um 11:45 dort! Der Bus zurück nach Siegen fährt stündlich um :45, der letzte ist um 22:45.

Was ihr mitbringt: Jeder bekommt von uns 1-2 Flaschen Bier, den Rest müsst ihr selbst kaufen und mitbringen: Getränke und etwas zum Grillen. Wir werden 1-2 Salat(e) und Brot stellen, ihr solltet jedoch selbst Fleisch, Gemüse oder Käse für den Grill dabei haben. Bitte beachtet, dass der 1. Mai ein FEIERTAG ist und Geschäfte deshalb geschlossen sind!

*English Version below*
INS² möchte euch herzlich zum allerersten Länderabend einladen! Ab April werden wir euch jeden Monat ein Land oder eine Region vorstellen, um euch so die Kultur näherzubringen. Internationale Studierende erzählen euch von ihrer Heimat und es werden Wege aufgezeigt, wir ihr diese Kulturen im Rahmen eures Studiums hautnah erleben könnt! Das Alles bei leckerem Essen, interessanten Vorträgen und vielen weiteren spaßigen Aktivitäten.

Am Mittwoch gibt es eine deftige Brotzeit. Denn schließlich gibt es wohl nirgends so viele Brotsorten wie in Deutschland. Dazu gibt es Salate, Würstchen, und Bier (“Solange der Vorrat reicht! 😉 )
Und das Alles kostet euch gar nichts! 🙂
~+~+~+~+~+~+~+~+~+~+~+~+~+~+~+~+~+~+~+~+
INS² would like to welcome you to the very first Länderabend! Starting in April, we will introduce you to a different country or a region in order to give you a detailed insight into the culture. International students will introduce you to their home and you will get to know possibilities of how to include a personal experience in this other part of the world within the framework of your studies. All this while preparing and eating yummy food, listening to interesting speaches and more!

This Wednesday, we invite you to a “deftige Brotzeit”! Get to know the German breadculture because you won’t find a country with more types of bread! Furthermore, we will provide salads, sausages and beer (as long as our reserves last!). And it won’t even cost you anything!

Welcome to Siegen!

We are really glad you arrived in Siegen. We want to help you feel welcome here and help you feel comfortable in your new living space. When traveling from your home country to live in a new country it is almost impossible to bring all the necessities you need for your daily live, so we want to go to IKEA with you to buy necessities like pots, pans, towels etc., but also anything decorative you might need to personalize your new living space in Siegen.

On Friday April 4th we will meet at 16:45 (4:45 p.m.) @ Siegen ZOB (the main station in Siegen) and then go to IKEA together to do some shopping, have great conversations and eat one of the infamous IKEA hot dogs after we are done shopping.

For those who are wondering: “What is IKEA?”
IKEA is a very large and very popular store where you can buy all things that you would need in your home – from furniture, to curtains, to pots and pans, to bedding, to stuffed animals for children.
Check out their website here: www.ikea.com
