Registration for the Christmas visit to Europa-Park

Registration for the Christmas visit to Europa-Park

Calendar from 07/11/2022 to 07/12/2022

The Amicale trip to Europa-Park is scheduled to take place between Saturday 3 and Sunday 18 December 2022. The vouchers will be valid for one visit during this period.

In order to benefit from this offer,  both of the following conditions must be fulfilled:

  • be a member of the Amicale* and
  • be a Council of Europe staff member, a Judge at the European Court of Human Rights or a member of a Permanent Representation.

If you fulfil both these requirements, Amicale has the pleasure to invite you to register your children aged 4-15** years to receive a free admission ticket. If you do not have any children, or if you have older children who do not qualify for free tickets, you can still register in order to benefit from the negotiated tariff (€ 41).

Amicale relies on its members’ honesty and integrity to register their own children aged 4-15 years only

Tickets will be valid only for one day between 3 and 18 December 2022.

The Amicale is pleased to inform its members that this year the children of the refugee families at the Ukrainian school and their mothers will be invited to join members and their children, to offer them a moment of magic too. Staff members who are hosting Ukrainian families can also register their children aged 4 to 15, if they will not benefiting from this offer through the Ukrainian school.

1/ Registration
Registration is open exclusively to the above-mentioned Amicale members who must complete and submit the registration form online by Sunday 20 November at the latest.

Staff members who are on mission, leave or sick leave at the time of registration can be registered by colleagues before the deadline.

2/ Admission fees

The Amicale will cover the entrance costs of children aged 4 to 15** years. 

Accompanying adults, children over 15 years old and any other members of the Amicale who wish to benefit from the negotiated rate of € 41 must register to receive a voucher which they should use to purchase their discount admission tickets at Europa-Park (valid between 3 and 18 December only).

Vouchers will be distributed during week 48; places and exact dates for collection will be communicated later, along with details of any special arrangements which Europa-Park might put in place from 3 to 18 December 2022 for the payment and collection of tickets.

3/ Transport

Europa-Park is located in Rust, Germany (Europa-Park-Straße, 277977 Rust): www.europapark.de/en. The park closes at 7 pm. Bus No. 271 from Strasbourg (coach station behind Les Halles shopping centre) arrives at Europa-Park at 11:00 and leaves Europa-Park at 19:00 to return to Strasbourg – upon reservation only.

4/ Public health measures

There are currently no public health measures in force (with the exception of wearing an FFP2 mask in certain situations – see the park’s website) but it is worth checking Europa-Park’s website nearer the time: https://www.europapark.de/en/info/current-information#allinfos.

5/ Liability

Parents are fully responsible for their children. If the former will not be present during the outing, we kindly ask that they designate a colleague to take care of their child(ren). Consequently, the colleague(s) they have designated will be responsible for these children. The Amicale does not accept any responsibility.

If you have any questions, please contact the Amicale at: amicale.noel@coe.int.

* The Amicale payment (25€) is automatically deducted from the salary of permanent staff members each July, unless they have opted out of the Amicale.  Temporary staff members and members of diplomatic missions who have not already done so can subscribe online and pay by bank card by clicking on the following link: https://www.amicale-coe.eu/en/abonnement.html. Payments must be made before registering. If you have any doubts, please contact the Amicale secretariat: amicale@coe.int.

** Europa-Park is free of charge for children up to 3 years old. In view of the fact that the trip to Europa-Park was cancelled in 2020 and 2021, this year Amicale is also including children aged 13 to 15 years so that these children can also get to enjoy the day out. The offer is normally reserved for children aged 4 to 12 years.
