Regional Group Rhine-Main

RG Rhein-Main in Heidelberg

Idyllic Vineyards Meet the Financial Metropolis

Whether walking through the vineyards or the world of finance, discovering German history or modern art – you can do a wide variety of things with us, the Rhine-Main regional group.

The Rhine-Main regional group connects scholarship holders in Frankfurt, Darmstadt and Mainz. Every semester, we organise a variety of events. These are mainly in our region, but we also try to offer opportunities to discover other cities by collaborating with other regional groups.

I never knew my life far away from home would be so much fun. Thanks to team Rhein-Main for arranging such wonderful events, helping us to socialize and to learn more about deutsche Kultur while having fun.

At the beginning of each semester, we invite you to a welcome meeting. This is a good opportunity to get to know other scholarship holders in the region. We also offer joint theatre visits, cycle tours, walking tours, international dinners or relaxed games evenings. Our collaboration with other regional groups enables us to offer trips to other cities such as Heidelberg or to the multicultural Ruhr area (here you will find reports on our previous activities).

We place scholarship holders with German host families as part of the “Deutschland hautnah – Germany behind the scenes” programme. This is an excellent opportunity to share different cultural perspectives and establish personal contacts.
We are always pleased to see new faces – whether scholarship holders or alumni!
