Institute hiking day on 18 Sept. 2023

Hike to Friedland with a visit to the museum!


All employees and former employees are cordially invited to hike with us again.!

This year we met at Göttingen train station and walked from here towards Friedland.
On the way there we had a longer break with lunch at the Wendebach reservoir, about halfway there.

The suckling pig was brought to us by Dr. Tim Schäfer sponsored and also prepared it! Thank you for that!

Well fortified, we then continued on to Friedland. There we visited the Friedland Museum with a tour of the museum and the border transit camp.
Owners of a culture ticket also have discounted entry here! Please do not forget!

We then celebrated the end in Friedland in the sports house.
We then organized our way back to Göttingen by bus and train, or shared rides.

Everyone was allowed to hike!

This year's contribution of 15 euros included drinks, lunch and rental of the Sporthaus Friedland.

Registration deadline was September 11, 2023 at 12:00h in the electronics workshop E2.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our sponsors Prof. Dr. Martin Suhm, Dr. Tim Schäfer and Dr. Markus Hold who financially supported us this year in organizing our hiking day.
