Three new villages in Switzerland and Germany!
Engelberg in Switzerland, Bodenmais in Bavaria and Braunlage in the Harz Mountains have committed themselves to rent a village events. All in all you now can choose between 10 villages and 1 state.
Also these new locations offer special possibilities to companies in addition to the basic rent a village services as branding, village check-in with key raffle and key handover by the Major.
In Bodenmais one can do a Ski Slalom through the narrow pathes between historic walls! What an entusiastic event for a company!
Braunlage, where the witches are partying the Walpurgisnacht every year around the mythfull mountain "Brocken", offers a wide range of interesting services for Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Events.
Another alpine pearl we have found with Engelberg in Central Switzerland. Close to heaven there is many of things to do between meetings or conferences: for example having dinner in the world's first rotating cable car going up the Titlis (3'020m above sealevel)
Very soon, you will have them presented on this websitte. Until then, please don't hesitat to contact us for further information.
