Canadian Summer School in Germany

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 8, 2019, by 1 p.m. at the latest (this means leaving Canada on Tuesday, May 7, 2019, 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 bus. Return flights should be booked for any time on June 23 (preferably after 10 a.m. since our bus leaves Kassel at 5 a.m. and reaches Frankfurt Airport in time for departures from 10 a.m. and after) or any date thereafter (you might want to remain in Germany for some additional days or weeks).


We are offering the possibility of group flights departing May 7, 2019, and returning June 23 through Merit Group Travel, Edmonton. You do not have to live in or fly from Edmonton to take advantage of this program. Merit Group Travel will help you with your flight, regardless of your departure city.

This opportunity allows for optimum savings and convenience. To take advantage of this offer, you must contact Karen Ryks:

Phone: (1) 780-439-3096 x. 7365
Toll Free: 1-888-341-1777 x. 7365

The Merit Group Travel Edmonton office can also get you a very good price if you are planning to remain in Europe after CSSG.

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

CSSG 2019 Travel Request Form

Canadian citizens staying for less than 3 months in Germany are not required to obtain a Visa. Permanent residents and international students MUST apply for a visa before flying to Germany. The visa application may take several weeks or months; therefore it is advisable to submit your documents early in order to obtain your visa on time. If you need further information on how to procure a visa, please contact Feisal Kirumira (CSSG Instructor) at
