Great idea from Cologne: kids’ birthday parties at stations

Thursday, September 25 th, 2014 · no Comments · In
One of our German partners, Stadt Aachen, has shared a fantastic concept – children’s birthday parties held at Cologne station to give youngsters a “behind-the-scenes” tour of one of the country’s busiest stations.

The parties last for three hours and include child-friendly talks by railway staff, the chance to visit the cab of a train and to receive a tour of off-limits parts of the station – as well as the obligatory birthday cake of course!

For the railway, an important aspect of the parties is the opportunity to not only inspire children about travelling by train, but also to educate them about railway safety.
