Hey guys. Me, along with my twin brother along with local friends Josh and Ryan would like to travel from London to Cologne in the summer of 2019. We're currently all 15 now but three of us will be 17 and 1 16 when we go. We plan to also stay with a nothern friend Cory from Manchester who will be 19. Do me and my twin brother need our parents permission to leave the country. My father objects to the trip, not wanting us to go without him. We dont want him to come on our lads holiday so are we leagally allowed to go no matter what he says?

You won't need your parents permission to fly, as far as I know.

You should check the German laws regarding this; laws about unaccompanied minors vary between countries, even within the EU.

That's true. A fifteen yr old in my family flew solo into France, but needed a letter of parental authorisation to cross the border into Spain, where she rendezvoused with friends.

Specifically for Germany? No, you cannot enter without written permission from both parents allowing you to be travel alone if you're under 18.

The big issue is 15 year olds and younger. Eurostar requires paperwork signed by the parent or guardian but says nothing about 16+. Why not ask a travel agent? It's their job after all. As for getting into Germany ... maybe just go via France because you will be in schengen and I doubt you can be stopped.
