Do you remember your first Experiment? What if we said you could do it all over again?
In celebration of our 85th anniversary, The Experiment is offering a brand new exclusive program, Germany: The Alumni Experience, for Experiment alumni over 40 and their 18+ relatives or partners. From April 13-28, 2018, alumni will follow in the footsteps of Donald Watt and his original group of Experimenters to Germany as they enjoy cooking classes and wine tastings, soak up German history and culture, and spend time with a local family during a homestay.
Join us on this inaugural alumni journey.
International Travel: Participants can purchase their own flights to take advantage of their miles or preferred agent. The Experiment can also arrange your travel from the U.S.
Activity Level: Participants must be able to stand for a few hours at a time and walk 2-4 miles per day in an urban setting. Participants must be able to carry their own luggage, including onto trains and other public transportation.
Lodging: During the homestay, participants will stay in their own room in the home of a local family. Couples may request a shared homestay with one room for both people. During the orientation and stays in Nuremberg, Dresden, and Berlin, participants will share a hotel room with one other participant of the same gender. Couples on program may share a room. You may also request individual accommodation for an additional cost.
Meals: During the homestay, most meals are provided by your host family. Meals are included on excursions during the homestay. During travel in Nuremberg, Dresden, and Berlin, all meals are included except five dinners which you will enjoy on your own.
