Traveling to Germany

All CSSG participants make their own air travel arrangements to Frankfurt, Germany. Please make sure that you arrive at Frankfurt International Airport on May 3, 2023, by 1 p.m. at the latest (this means leaving Canada on May 2, 2023, since nearly all flights to Germany are overnight flights). We meet as a group at Frankfurt International Airport and continue our travel from there by chartered bus. Return flights should be booked for any time on June 21, 2023 (preferably after 11 a.m. since our bus leaves Kassel at 6 a.m. and reaches Frankfurt Airport in time for departures from 11 a.m. and after) or any date thereafter (you might want to remain in Germany for additional personal travel).


We are offering the possibility of group flights departing May 3, 2023, and returning June 21, 2023 through Merit Group Travel, Edmonton. You do not have to live in or fly from Edmonton, or on these specific days to take advantage of this program. Merit Group Travel will help you with your flight, regardless of your departure city or day.

This opportunity allows for optimum savings and convenience. Contact Ms. Val Landals (and please use the form below):

You can also obtain low-cost, comprehensive health and cancellation insurance through Merit Group Travel Edmonton.
