We are pleased to present you the financial capital of Switzerland in November in the best possible way. That's why we try to take a 2.5km walk to get a glimpse of the structure and history of the city before starting the official program. If you can book your trip early enough, please join our informal group and mark your name above with "Including Pre-Program".
Please pay the hotel lodgment on Tuesday at your departure as mentioned in the invitation mail. Please keep some money to pay your dinner at Monday evening. There is no need to change money.
