Bye bye Stadelhofen, hello Tiefenbrunnen

Another out of office trip?

No, we're enjoying the lake view at Bellerivestrasse 201 not just for the weekend, but for a full twelve months. With the start on 11 March, we began an exciting new chapter at Prager Dreifuss in Tiefenbrunnen - one that we will close again in March 2025 when we return to our newly renovated offices at Stadelhofen station.

With remarkable organisational talent and considerable muscle power, our colleagues have mastered the challenge of packing all important documents, files and archives in line with deadlines and data protection requirements. This was achieved without affecting our ongoing mandates. The last few weeks have been intense and have demanded a lot from everyone. But in these challenging times, we have also learnt to appreciate the spirit and resilience of our team anew.

Now that we've settled in at the other end of the Seefeld quarter, we're eager to hear your insider tips: Where can we find the best restaurants for a quick lunch, and where can we enjoy a relaxing beer with our colleagues after work? Luckily, we don't need directions for our lunchtime dip in the lake - we can already enjoy the picturesque view from our office window.

Shhh! We travel to Appenzell

Our annual event, the whole office flies out.

This time it hit Appenzell. More than fifty employees of Prager Dreifuss went out to uncover the secret of Appenzell cheese.

Well, we didn't quite succeed, but we did experience a lot of beautiful things: a tour through the small town of Appenzell with its unique architecture, especially charming: the Löwen drugstore. In addition, culture also for spoiled people like our partner Gion Jegher, who for once swappped the grand piano with the traditional Hackbrett.

Our subsequent hike takes us to the most beautiful places, from Ebenalp adventurously down to the world famous restaurant Aescher and from there to the picturesque Seealpsee. In the evening, we enjoyed the  well-deserved aperitif on top of the Säntis, which gave us a breathtaking view with dramatic thunderclouds. Luckily the big rain spared us and we could enjoy the evening. For some it got late, but if you work hard....

Finally, on Saturday, an exciting talk about the current state of data science. The topic Artifical Intelligence and Machine Learning inspired us all and we saw lively discussions.

We are already looking forward to the next trip! Where shall we go in 2024?

Many thanks to the motivated participants and to Homburger colleague Jürg Frick for the smooth organisation.
