Activity Title: Overnighter at refuge on Panion Mtn

Date/Time:   Saturday 07 December 2019, at 12:00. 

Meeting Location:

The end of Gounari Str., at the tennis courts parking lot, Glyfada.(Map)

Short Description: 

EDNY organizes a different overnighter on 7/12.

This time we will be going to Panio Mtn. hat rises SE of Hymettus Mtn. between Keratea and Kalyvia.

A small refuge made by local groups, which contains some basic furniture, outside toilets and fireplaces in two of its three spaces will accommodate us!

It is always open and available for those that will hike or drive to it since it is also available by car.

Next to it is the “Zoodochos Pigi”, a small chapel with religious drawing dating back to 1734 and particular architecture at its dome. The chapel was named by the spring that can be found next to it and is the only one on the whole mountain.

The view is amazing towards every direction as well as towards “our” Hymettus Mtn. that can be viewed from a different angle.

We will have the opportunity for small or larger hikes, depending on the weather and the group’s wishes, since the several paths end up at the location.

The schedule is the following:

Departure for the refuge will take place at 12. Upon arrival some clean-up work will take place in order to drop off our equipment and prepare for the night. Depending on the time this is over and until nightfall there is free time and a hike could take place.

Upon returning we will light the fireplace (firewood will need to be bought on the way there or gathered) in order to prepare our dinner and warm the place up.

The following day, after breakfast everyone’s belongings will be packed and for those that wish to do so there will be another hike. Towards noon we will head back.

Cost: Free. Please leave a contribution towards EDNY.

Organized by: EDNY

Need to bring:

Everyone needs to have a sleeping-bag, carry-mat, flashlight, water, dishes, food for Saturday and Sunday breakfast, warm clothing for overnighting and the hikes that will take place, as well as anything else that they believe will make their stay a pleasant one.

'The Christmas Story' by Heinrich Schütz

posted Dec 1, 2019, 3:15 AM by Newcomers Bulletin Board   [ updated Dec 1, 2019, 3:18 AM ]

Continuing with our tradition, The Athens Singers present a concert of Christmas music. We will perform selected parts of the Baroque composition 'The Christmas Story' by Heinrich Schütz. Written in the mid-1600's, the piece combines narrative solo music with choral singing filled with lovely, ear-pleasing harmonies.

The second part of the concert will consist of Christmas Carol favorites, in both English and Greek, and the audience will be encouraged to sing along with the choir.

A reception will follow the performance.

Once again we will perform at The War Museum Amphitheatre, with its fine acoustics and easily accessed location.

December Walk

posted Nov 28, 2019, 1:29 AM by Newcomers Bulletin Board

This month we will meet at AB Mega supermarket, Ekali at 10am. Here we will car pool and then drive to the area of Marathon lake. We park at a church on a hill with a small grave yard. Here we will have views of Marathon lake. We will walk by the lake, through fields and olive groves. It could be a bit muddy, due to the recent rain.There is a bit of uphill, but nothing too challenging.The walk will be over 2 hours.
The walk will only go ahead in good weather.
Could you please let Eleni or me know if you would like to join us.
If you take part in a Newcomers walk you do so entirely at your own risk and neither Newcomers or the leaders of the walk are in any way responsible for the safety of those taking part.
Looking forward to seeing you on Wednesday.

Dear all, 
Are you ready for our new adventure ?
here are some words as an introduction by our beloved Martina Anagnostou who is going to be our guide of our next - very special - outing on December 7th. 


 In the midst of Christmas carols and flickering season lights celebrating the birth of Christ let us delve into another contrasting and yet very surprisingly familiar world, the world of the Museum of  Islamic Art of Athens. 

Let us go on a journey to understand a different story by visiting the Museum of  Islamic Art tucked next to the Kerameikos ancient cemetery and the perfectly intact temple of Hephaestus. Let us discover something human and spiritual about this religion that has the absolute same roots as Judaism and Christianity, and has a philosophy and culture of fascinating diversity and richness. Martina our guide has lived in many countries, notably among them Pakistan, Sudan, Jordan and currently Tunisia all of which are officially muslim. This in combination with her art historical background, should make for an interesting journey. 

Without images and concentrating almost exclusively on the written word, while at the same time covering a vast cultural landscape, Islam is the youngest of the three monotheistic religions dominating our planet. The Museum of  Islamic Art of Athens is housed in a striking neoclassical house build around archeological foundations that part part of the exhibit. The artifacts are primarily the collection of Antonis Benakis which he developed while living in Egypt. Let us delve into the world of swirling arabesque and sacred geometry to understand something more human and profound about the Islamic world.

The Islamic art collections of the Benaki Museum are housed in a complex of neoclassical buildingon 
22 Agion Asomaton & 12 Dipilou St. Click on the  map . For more Info on Access, tickets, map, etc HERE

  We will meet on Saturday December 7th at 10:10 at the ticket office of the Museum, on 22 Agion Asomaton & 12 Dipilou St. The tour will start at 10:30 sharp and will last for approx. 1,5 to hours. 
The cost of the guided tour will be 11 euros/person, and the entrance ticket to the exhibition (9 euros/person,  reduced 7 euros), is not included in the price. We need at least p10 participants for the Tour to go.

After the tour, we will go to this marvelous place for coffee or light lunch !
