Weekends will be yours to explore Europe. You will havel 3-day weekends so you can travel further and see more. Chartered buses will take us to Nice, Paris, Interlaken, Switzerland, Muenster and Amsterdam. This will greatly simplify your travel planning. All students also receive a German railpass for easy access to local airports. Several airports in the Muenster area offer low-cost flights to cities like Barcelona, Rome, Dublin, London and Prague.
