Americans or English Speaking People In Cologne

Hi All,

I am looking for Americans and English speaking fellows in Koln to socialize with and hang out sometimes. I am learning German as well, but you know t's taking me a while just to be able to speak daily things. I am also wondering if there are any visual designers out there, especially web related. I would love to gather a group and meet up regularly. Thanks!

Have a look at the TNDC (Thursday Night Drinks Cologne) meetups:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/112910645421162/?fref=ts

you get sent an invitation on facebook. It circulates between a few locations every week. It's intended as a meet up for English speakers - both native and not. It's a great way to meet people!

Hey guys,

I'm an American living in Ehrenfeld, Cologne. I'm in the same boat as the OP. I've been here for about a month while my working papers are in process. I'm still in the very early stages of being able to speak German. I could definitely use some socialization with English speakers because not having a job is boring me to death.

Hey everyone!

I'm moving to Ehrenfeld on March 29th from NYC. I'm also in the beginning stages of learning German as well. It would be great to meet up with some English speakers to smooth the transition period. :)

Sincerely,

Shawna

Been in Cologne about 1 year, finally signed up for Toytown. German is still terrible...

Anyway, I can vouch a bit for the Thursday meet up. I've only been 2x but I had a good time.

I'll throw out Joe's bar as well. Gone to catch a Cubs games this past summer. Was just a small group of people, and unfortunately the American food they serve I find rather terrible, but we still had a good time. Find a sporting event on their schedule http://www.joe-champs.de/11/ and might be a good excuse to have some beers and eat terrible wings.

Hiya All!

I came across this message here on the forum and thought you might be kind enough to help...

My name is Aby, I'm from Leeds, United kingdom... I'm visiting Cologne next week (Mon 15th, Tues 16th and Wed 17th July) as I have a job interview on Tuesday morning but after this I'll be free the rest of the time. I thought I'd try and contact a few people as I don't have a clue about anything and don't know anyone at all in Cologne. I was hoping that you might be able to recommend a few places I could see, visit, maybe some nice bars or restaurants whilst I'm over in Cologne... Ideally, I'd love to meet up with a few people for a drink if possible and hopefully make some new friends, for when I move to Cologne next month :)

You can message me via Facebook if it's easier: https://www.facebook.com/abykhan01

Thank you so much for any suggestions you might have, I'm an absolute newbie to Cologne so any advice is more than welcome!

Kindest regards,

Aby

Nice to see English speakers from all kinds of places in the NRW.

I'm originally from Chicago, but I moved to Germany in August 2012 to a little town called Hattingen. It's about an hour away from Koln.

We'll be out and about for summer vacation, but I'd love to maybe hookup sometime in September with some of you.

Take care and have a great summer.

Denise
