Thinking European History and Culture

Our mobility to KreaScientia gGmbH in Aachen, Germany

6. September to 12. September 2014

Here are the pictures from our second mobility to Aachen, Germany

During our meeting in Aachen, Germany we learned a lot the the "dark middle age" was not a "dark" time in other regions of Europe. We had a nice program with visits to the medival places like the town hall and the Cathedral of Aachen, a monastery in Belgium, but also more modern spots, like a cemetery for World War II soldiers and a art project against war. The meetings and discussions where successful because most of the participants met before in Turkey.
