Winter in Switzerland, ...where else!

What is the first image in your mind when thinking of Switzerland? Right, snowy mountaintops, blue skies and people happily cavorting in white landscapes. Well, the good news is that the winter season is arriving rapidly, time for all you organisers to think of your next events in the snow.

Switzerland excels in winter entertainment be it sporty, cultural, gastronomical or just fun and we have chosen a few typical examples for your information. It goes without saying that there is much, much more where that came from!

Drinks in the Ice Palace – Jungfraujoch
What could be more inspirational for your seminar participants than a mountain and glacier landscape viewed at 3'400 m above sea level? It starts with the trip to the highest train station in Europe, an experience in itself. Once at the top – 3.454 m high – enjoy an exclusive drink at the Ice Palace on the Jungfraujoch or “Top of Europe” and turn your event into an unforgettable summit on the summit.   

Culinary tour of Basel
This culinary event is composed of a guided tour through Basel and gastronomic team activities revolving around the topics of food and drink. Enjoy a 3-course menu in 1-2 different venues and a wine presentation of the wines you have selected for dinner. A great team building exercise whilst discovering the beautiful city of Basel.

Huskyday in Arosa
Don’t you just love sled dogs? Would you like to try something new? Would you like to experience with your team a memorable day in the snow? An introduction to the world of sled dogs will develop the necessary skills for the proper handling of the dogs and the sledges. Under the expert guidance of the guides you will take on the harnesses to the Huskies and put them to the sledges before you go on the trail. Each participant in the group has the opportunity to steer the sled themselves.

Chocolate dreams can come true- Bern
Create exquisite chocolates with the finest truffle and praline fillings or even make your own chocolate bars and figures from yummy Swiss chocolate. At miniSchoggi numerous options for a variety of different occasions are available. Team events, after hours event, they work with you to conjure up the perfect event and make everybody’s chocolate dreams come true. Be inspired because at miniSchoggi they know – they have something for everyone!

Creative teamwork at its best: The do-it-yourself-sledge
The teams will each build a sled out of the most diverse materials such as old skis, car tires, cushions, wire or cardboard. Participants have plenty of time to build, hammer, glue, cut and saw, their finished product will of course first be tested  by professionals and will only be raced once they have been given the all clear by safety professionals. A great fun exercise in the beautiful setting of Grindelwald.

This is just a small sample of what is on offer, there are of course many more opportunities which we will be delighted to help you discover and help you to make your next event in Switzerland special!
