University hockey tour to Germany: Strathclyde University HC

Strathclyde University

We had previously run a number of hockey tours for Strathclyde University in the past, including Holland, Belgium, the Czech Republic and two to Germany. This year they picked Cologne as their tour destination, for both their men's and women's teams. The city's skyline is dominated by the twin spires of its epic 13th century Gothic Cathedral. By night the city boasts a vibrant nightlife and is perfect for a university touring team. The main area for clubs and bars is the Zülpicher Strasse party mile.

Being located in Scotland the team ambitiously picked a coach and ferry option from Dover. They left on a Friday night arriving to Dover in the morning, and were in Cologne by early afternoon. This gave them plenty of time to check in before heading out to sample the local nightlife and Germany beers! The team loved their hotel which we had picked due to its central location and comfortable rooms.

Over the next two days the they played two fixtures each. They commended their hosts for their exceptional welcome and hosting, and felt the level of hockey was perfect for them. They spent one of their evenings with their hosts in their club house, and the other out exploring Cologne's nightlife.

We were delighted with how much all the tourists enjoyed their time in Cologne, and they have already begun to book their next tour with us, this time to Antwerp.
