Christmas Buddy Offers

Auf einem Board sind die Patenangebote der Familien zusammengetragen

Dear friends and supporters,

in 2008 we started to bring people from all over the world together in Dresden during Christmas time. The X-MAS Tram combines a nice tram ride through the city of Dresden by night with typical German Christmas culture like songs, and culinary specialities for example Glühwein and Stollen. But the highlight of each X-MAS Tram is our Buddy program. Saxon citizens offer different activities during Christmas time and winter to people that are new in Dresden and foreign students, so that no one has to celebrate Christmas alone.

We are fully booked and can not take more buddy offers.
