Group Hiking

On August 12th the Broekmann and the Arenz groups went for a hiking tour to the Bernese Oberland. The biggest attractions were the swimming activities in the alpine lake Oberstockensee and anoramic view of the Alps at the top of the Stockhorn. A particular highlight of the excursion was the 30 minutes downhill trip back into the valley with scooter bikes (“Trotti-bikes”).
