Events Across Europe

In Patras with Philipp

Patras: International Night

Philipp gave us a foretaste of what the new semester will bring with his trip to Patras. There, our contact person attended the summer board meeting of the international EESTEC board. He marvelled at the small town of Patras between the mountains and the sea with its Roman ruins, beautiful staircases and dozens of cats. There is also the oldest winery in Greece, which is actually only 150 years old. Of course, LC Zurich is never empty-handed, so several kilograms of Swiss chocolate were imported to Greece. In return, there were the finest Greek specialities as well as a newly discovered addiction to Greek coffee.

Patras: Best Food

But it wasn’t all fun, views and food; at the Summer Board Meeting, Philipp, an LC Zurich member, had a direct influence on the further development of EESTEC at the European level.

Invasion of Kranjska Gora, Slovenia

Kranjska Gora: Lake Jasna

Now the rest of us were unstoppable. We too wanted to leave again! With a pile of train tickets and mobile bar equipment, we boarded the night train, where we pre-partied for the entire night. The next morning, we poured out of the train in Ljubljana straight to the next Burek place. Of course, we couldn’t miss the view from one of the most beautiful points in Ljubljana: the castle hill. Soon after, LC Ljubljana picked up all the participants in four (!) big coaches and took us to Kranjska Gora, where our 100 kg music boxes really came into their own. So the Goth & Emo party could start. At three in the morning, the question of the right midnight snack arose. But as already mentioned, LC Zurich is never empty-handed. So we had Swiss Raclette.

Kranjska Gora: Fruit & Vegetable Party

On the second day, the obligatory excursion to the nearby Lake Jasna was not to be missed. Of course, it’s not very warm in October, but no LC Zurich member lets such details stop them. Splash! Time for the Fruit & Vegetable Party.

Spending two days in Slovenia with almost 200 EESTECers is an incredible experience. Our colleagues from Portugal and Romania, our friends from Delft, the people from Patras, the acquaintances from the German LCs. We all met again.

The writer of the review on our website swung very quickly from “What is Kranjska Gora?” to “When is the next one?”

Dreamy Autumn Days in Rothenthurm, Switzerland

Rothenthurm: Crazy Hats Party

After all the travelling, we didn’t get tired at all. On the contrary, it was time to return the favour! And so participants from all over Europe also enjoyed our Swiss International Motivational Weekend, IMW. Three days in Switzerland, two big parties, and all that with cheese and homemade Rösti. Our international guests should miss nothing. However, Switzerland is not only about partying, we also went on a hike on Saturday afternoon. The peak of our event took us to the peak of Rothenthurm, from where we could enjoy the beautiful Swiss landscape and discuss with our Slovenian friends whose Alps are more beautiful.

Rothenthurm: Hike

Of course, such a weekend with 50 people from all over Europe does not organise itself. Therefore, we would like to thank our organising committee and all the numerous helpers from our EESTEC LC Zurich!

Local Events

Member Meeting with Fondue

Parallel to the big events, our Member Meetings take place every second week on Thursday evenings. Questions are asked and answered there, such as: How can I join? When is the next event in Tampere? How do I register? Which is the southernmost LC? What does EESTEC do on a European level? I want to organise something, too!

Of course always followed by cosy after meetings with Fondue, beer pong, pizza, Rage Cage and stories from far away events.You also want to travel and organise, make new friends, tell stories about your friends in Portugal, stories from Serbia and landscapes from Finland? Come to one of our bi-weekly member meetings (23.2.2023 18:30 in HG E 33.5, see our calendar) or ask us directly if you see someone in our bright red t-shirts or via
