What we're about

If you're looking to get out and about in and around Bonn, or are seeking to meet new people at low-key, relaxed and friendly events, this group is for you!

We follow just two simple rules: Everybody is welcome as long as one stays friendly, polite and respectful with each other. Any other behaviour such as being rude, offensive or discriminatory in any way against other members will not be tolerated within Bonn Social. Those, who decide not to follow this rule will be blocked and removed from our group.

Begun in February 2013, Bonn Social has grown rapidly and we now have hundreds of members from around the world. Our members organise regular events in and around Bonn. We aim to offer a range of different events, so there's something for everyone, whether that's drinks, coffee, dinner, language evenings, museum visits, or nights out.

Hope to meet you soon!!!

Donations and subscription fees:
Kindly note that our get together and conversation events at Bonn Social are free of charge. There is however a twice-yearly subscription fee that needs to be paid for Bonn Social to Meetup. In the case of Bonn Social, the Unlimited Organizer Subscription plan is applicable which allows us to have an unlimited Leadership Team, as well as an unlimited number of members (for more information please check out https://help.meetup.com/hc/en-us/articles/360001620472-Organizer-Subscription-Pricing )

Since organizers pay out-of-pocket for their organizer subscription plan to run their Meetup Groups and events, from time to time we ask our members for a small donation (e.g. 0,50€) which helps us to cover those costs. Thanks for your understanding and your support!

European Day of Languages in Bonn , Münsterplatz


European Day of Languages in Bonn[masked], Münsterplatz The Regional Representation of the European Commission in Bonn will celebrate this year’s European Day of Languages between 11 am and 5 pm on Bonn’s busy Münster Square. Passersby will have the opportunity to pick up a wide range of free publications on the European Union in multiple languages. More importantly members of the Commission’s translation service as well as the European Personnel Selection Office from Brussels and Luxembourg are going to be there to inform the visitors about traineeships, recruitment procedures and career opportunities in the European Commission, not only as translator or interpreter. The event on 26 September also offers a unique opportunity to get first-hand impressions of the daily work of a translator. At the same time, we want to draw attention to the EU’s linguistic and cultural diversity. Our partners of the Institut français, Oxford-Club, Goethe- Institut, Center for European Integration Studies, the Pädagogischer Austauschdienst, European Socialfonds and Adult Education Centre Bonn will be grouped around the European Commission’s star shaped tent to explain their course programmes and help us to show how important language learning is to intercultural understanding. Just come by and profit from this unique opportunity. We look forward to seeing you at the 12 star tent!

The 'SPEAKING ENGLISH' Conversation Group

Cassius Garten

We meet on Saturday afternoons in order to engage in English conversation and discussion through a variety of popular topics. Some of the attendees are international workers or world travelers with English skills on an intermediate or higher level. Some participants are native English speakers, offering learners an opportunity to hear even greater fluency within the language. However, please remember that beginners of English are always welcome and strongly encouraged to join in as well. We appreciate anyone who possesses an enthusiasm for spoken English coupled with a desire to make new friends & social contacts. The location is always "Cassius Garden". It's a big, centrally located, self-service restaurant with lots of seats. We meet inside & upstairs on the first floor of the restaurant. http://www.cassiusgarten.de/english-information. We extend a warm and friendly invitation to all persons interested in practicing their English language skills in a relaxed and comfortable environment.
