Past Events

Chinese New Year 2016

The year of the monkey!

For Chinese New Year 2016 Connect took a large group of students to Basel, Switzerland. We visited the Grand Casino Basel for a night of Authentic Chinese celebrations. A huge buffet of food was laid out for everyone to enjoy while watching the Chinese New Year show, including authentic Chinese music and traditional dances.

This event was a great opportunity to explore a different culture and celebrate with students from around the world!

Winter Hiking 2015


We visited the beautiful Black Forest in December 2015, we hiked up through the forest to the stunning view of mountains and lakes surrounding us!

With the Black Forest being so close to Loerrach it is a must see! We drove up into the mountains and started with a small hike up to a viewing tower. Once we'd seen the stunning scenery, there was no stopping us from exploring further into the forest. We discovered a small river running through the forest that lead down to a waterfall, there were other areas set up for camp fires and the forest even had a few patches of snow from the beginning of Winter.

We finished the day off by trying the famous Black Forest Cake at a nearby restaurant.

Milan 2015

We took a group of students to Milan to visit the World Expo!

During our time there we explored the Expo which was centred around food and how we can feed the world. This was a great experience as we all came from different backgrounds and we had the opportunity to explore even more cultures together!

We also explored the city of Milan and visited the famous Duomo di Milano, the Sforza Castle and we has some great Italian pizza of course!

"The Milan trip with connect is one of my favourite memories from my time in Loerrach! Experiencing a new city with great friends made the trip unforgettable. The highlight of Milan for me was seeing the Duomo, it's a beautiful world famous building that I'd always dreamed of seeing, and connect gave me that opportunity." - Chloe Hanson, Erasmus+ student from England.
