Press trips

We regularly organize press trips for journalists; provide story themes and further necessary support. Even if we are trying to maximally satisfy journalists´ needs, the capacity of press trips is limited. If you decide to enrol for our press trip we kindly ask you to specify the newspaper or magazine you are representing, its target group and a scope of the text you are planning to write after your visit.

For the forthcoming months, we are planning the following press trips:
