What We Do

With a club demographic that spans age groups, life’s phases and crosses cultural boundaries, we strive to offer something for everyone. With a mix of daytime and evening happenings, we hope everyone can find a convenient time to take part in something.

AIWCC keeps members connected through online meet-ups
during this time of social distancing.
We welcome you to join our community!


Our activities are member-led with support from the club. Some occur weekly, some once or twice a month, and some happen "on demand" i.e. when it is convenient for the Activity Leader and participants. We offer a mix of morning, evening and weekend time options to accommodate all schedules. Our weekly coffees, parent meet-ups and book discussion group are among our longest running activities. Some of our current staples are:

  • Writing Women • supporting writing group meets monthly in the  evenings  
  • Sprechen • monthly opportunity to practice German
  • Stitch ‘n’ Bitch • friendly group of knitters, crocheters and stitchers
  •  Southern Swizzle • monthly dinner meet ups in Rodenkirchen with or without partners
  • Book Discussion • readers meet mornings (in person) or evenings (via Zoom) to discuss books selected by the group members
  • Urban Sketchers • meet monthly to sketch local attractions
  • Mothers & Munchkins • meetup for parents with young children
  • Stadtwald Runners & Walker • takes place on Saturday mornings twice a month
  • Regular coffee mornings in Cologne and Bonn

Examples of activity groups we have had in the past are Kino & Kölsch, Scrapbooking, Hiking, Photography and Tennis. Groups change based on member interest and Activity Leader availability. All members are welcome to share their passions and talents with the club!


Our events are club-lead with support from members. They occur seasonally or may be one-off special events. Longstanding club events include family parties for Halloween and Christmas, our Welcome Back Brunch in September, a Thanksgiving meal, a Christmas Brunch, our Annual General Meeting in June and a July 4th BBQ. Recent additions to our annual events include Trivia Night and the Sustainable Fashion Bash. Both are fundraisers for our Charities. We also participate in and host special interest events like:

  • One Billion Rising
  • Cologne Karneval
  • Global Book Discussions focused on special topics (i.e. refugees, education, human rights)
  • Benefit Concerts
  • 16 Days Campaign
  • Women’s March

Family Programs

The AIWCC has a long tradition of family programs. As times evolve, so do our offerings. We've put together a page dedicated to families here.

We encourage members to pursue what they love and share that passion!

Lifelong friendships have grown from these gatherings -
many began with a friendly smile and a cup of coffee.
