The weather in the mountains can change fast and often. Although the long term predictions are very good, prepare for changing weather. We had an exceptional hot summer, but it is not expected that the temperature will exceed 25 C at our meeting. The temperature can fall down to below 10 C. Prepare warm clothes when visiting the bunker inside the mountain.We will climb up to 2000 meters.We will not walk on difficult trails, but have comfortable shoes for loose ground. As always for the Gala dinner on Saturday the dress code is Black tie. Our hotel has a wonderful SPA, so do not forget to take your swimsuit.
In Switzerland we have the Swiss francs (CHF). It got weaker in the last weeks, so Switzerland will not be that expensive. Euros are sometimes accepted. All major credit cards are widely accepted.
When entering Switzerland you need to buy the Swiss “Vignette” (40 CHF) for the Swiss “Autobahn“ (highway). The roads signs for the highway are green. The maximum speed on the highway is 120 Km/h, on roads 80 Km/h and in villages 50 Km/h if not shown differently.
Included are breakfast, dinner and lunch from Thursday noon to Sunday noon.
If you have some food allergies, please remind the organization.
Please refuel the car before you arrive at our meeting point in Gstaad. When you exit the highway to meet us in Safenwil there are fuel stations. We are a large group and it would be difficult to stop as a group for refuelling. 500 meters from our hotel, at the entrance of Gstaad is a fuel station. I recommend 98 octane fuel for our cars. Fuel can be paid by credit cards.
