About The Event
Come join us in Freiburg im Breisgau, for a fun-filled and community-centered worldschooling gathering August 24 - 31, 2022. Located in the middle of the Black Forest, Freiburg im Breisgau offers the perfect combination of sunshine, history, culture, museums, lakes, technology, nature events, cutting-edge architecture, and laidback old-town charm.
Our pop-ups provide a super casual, budget-friendly opportunity to gather, connect with other worldschoolers, share your insights, instill new friendships, learn about the local area, and immerse in a friendly, accepting mobile community.
We've cherry-picked the best low- or no-cost activities that highlight local nature, arts, history, food, and culture... but you'll also have plenty of time to relax, get to know each other, and even stray from the itinerary to add activities that cater to the group's interests (we provide plenty of supplemental ideas to tailor your experience).
Pop in for a few days or the full week. Join as many activities as you'd like. It's up to you! We would love to have you come and simply connect with like-minded families while we dive in and explore the local offerings.

Manuela and one of her children (age 9) will be hosting this event. Manuela's family currently uses Germany as a home base but has also lived in other EU countries. They've recently traveled to Nicaragua and Bolivia and would love to spend more time in Asia. Manuela is drawn to Freiburg im Breisgau for its beautiful nature, lots of animals, clear water and fresh air, historical places, adventure parks, sport possibilities, and great food.
