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, everyone can find time to take part in something.


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
  • Stadtwald Runners & Walkers • takes place on Saturday mornings twice a month
  • Regular coffee mornings in Cologne and Bonn
  • Kino & Kölsch • movie night followed by a drink
  • Hiking • monthly hikes in the surrounding countryside

Examples of activity groups we have had in the past are Scrapbooking, 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 at The Hard Rock Cafe
  • Global Book Discussions focused on special topics (i.e. refugees, education, human rights)
  • Benefit Concerts
  • 16 Days Campaign
