eurolaser works outing 2011 | Company
The eurolaser team visits Switzerland and Austria - 06.-09.01.2011
Everyone returned to their offices content and motivated after a 3-day trip to Austria and Switzerland. We set off on Thursday evening on the long but enjoyable trip that took us as planned to the company Zünd Systemtechnik AG - our largest supplier.
We arrived in Altstätten on Friday where we were given a warm welcome by Mike Zünd, son of the CEO and founder of the company Karl Zünd, and his team. A tour of the plant and various presentations and demonstrations allowed us to have a look behind the scenes and to answer any questions directly on the spot.
After a little refreshment we all set off together with the Zünd team for a sight seeing tour of Appenzell and then on to visit the Apenzell show dairy. Of course the guided tour of the production halls ended with an obligatory cheese tasting session.
To round off our first day in Switzerland we visited the "Hirschhöckli" where we spent a cosy evening trying all the local specialities until late in the evening.
On Saturday we all had to get up very early. Our destination was the winter resort of Arlberg. We were lucky and were able to ski, snowboard or zipfelbob in the bright sunshine. There was a toboggan track of 1.2 kilometers and a 22-km ski run to be covered with a height difference of about 5,500 meters.
And if the first run was not enough, everyone was free to go up the mountain a second time with the mountain railway with the fantastic view thrown in free of charge. Tired by the wonderful mountain air everyone headed back to the hotel where an Indian buffet was awaiting us.
The successful weekend was concluded with a visit to a disco where we celebrated to dance music before heading home to Lüneburg after breakfast on Sunday.
