You are new in Aachen and would like to explore the surroundings?
You want to meet new friends?
You want to learn more about German culture and history?
You want to see as many cities as possible in your time in Aachen?
Then you should join us on an “INCAS Weekend” (IWE)!
INCAS offers a day trip to a city or sight in Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands or Luxemburg once a month!
Our trips usually include a guided city tour and/or a guided tour in a museum or sight. We have visited the city of Luxemburg, the underground caves in Maastricht and walked up to the “Drachenfels” near Bonn… Every month, we offer a different destination for you!
Each trip will be announced about 2 weeks in advance on our webpage and through the email list (make sure you sign up for it on our homepage). The cost is approx. 5-15€, depending on the destination. You have to register in our office the Tuesday before the trip (which is Saturdays), the registration time can be found in the trip announcement.
We are looking forward to seeing you soon!
- When are the trips?
The trips are on a Saturday, once a month. The specific date is announced approx. 2-3 weeks before the trip.
- How can I register?
You have to register in our office. Registration time is usually the Tuesday before the trip at 7:30pm. The specific time can be found on our homepage/ in the email about the trip. Online registration is not possible (until further notice).
- Can I also register my friends?
You can only register 1 person, whether that is your friend or yourself. You cannot register more than 1 person e.g. a group of friends. Everyone has to come to registration themselves.
- In which language are the guided tours?
The guided tours are always in English. If we go to a museum with audio guides, you may also get German, Spanish, French etc., but we cannot guarantee this.

Every student of RWTH and FH Aachen, students at the Sprachenakademie (German courses) and PhDs.
- Are you doing multiple-day-tours, e.g. to Italy?
We are only offering regular day tours. If we exceptionally offer a multiple day tour (which happens every 1-2 years or so), we will let you know as early as possible.
- I got another question, whom can I contact?
