25th Anniversary Networking Event

Discover the popular winter sport: Curling. 

We will be instructed by teachers how to handle „Curling-Stones“ for our following Curling competition. On 8 rinks we are choosing the winning team. Visitors can enjoy a glass of „Glühwein", „Punch" or a hot Soup. Later on we will warm up at the Restaurant al Parc and the famous Kulm Country Club, where we will have the pleasure of enjoying a delicious Menue including a traditional Swiss cheese Fondue.

Be sure to bring weatherproof winter clothing and sturdy winter shoes – the Networking Event on Wednesday, 31st January 2018 from 19:00h will take place outdoor!
