Transport 🚆

In order to guarantee a cozy atmosphere and so that we all definitely get to know each other, we will move into a house in the vicinity of Davos. To do so, we will rely on the renowned and legendary Swiss trains! 🇨🇭 Departure: Friday, September 22, 2023, Zürich HB (Main Station 🚉) at the group meeting point at 4:00 p.m. The latter is located just below the main dome, on the ground floor 0️⃣ and not underground! Please be on time as we cannot miss the train we booked. Return: Sunday, September 24, 2023. Arrival at Zürich HB around 4 p.m.

At the meeting point, make sure that you stand next to the people with the VIS flag (yellow spiral with the lettering "VIS") because other student associations might travel at the same time. And you definitely don't want to spend a weekend with them, trust me ;) 😜

What to bring with you 🧳

Meals, snacks and drinks are included in the trip (and they will be good! 😋). So you basically only have to take with you what you otherwise consider to be vital for a 48-hour weekend trip ... Note from the Organizing Committee: your laptop is definitely not vital. In other words, forget about it! 🙈

Otherwise you need:

  • clothes 👕
  • toilet bag 🪥
  • slippers, as shoes are forbidden in the whole house 🩴
  • the house is located at 1500m above sea level, so make sure to bring warm clothes with you. 🏔️
  • earplugs if you are a light sleeper 🛌
  • your best board/card games 🎲 (this point is of utmost importance)

Depending on the weather, we will go on a hike on Saturday. 🥾 As a consequence, please bring good shoes, preferably hiking shoes. If you are not too much of a hiker, don't worry: there will be several options!
