CSC Switzerland hiking tour 2014

Our annual hiking tour started at around 11 a.m. at train station Ostermundingen. Our organizer & vice president Heinz had to answer the questions why he did choose Ostermundingen quite a lot as it is not really having a similar name to Dundee’s. His solution was suprisingly understandable… A neighbourhood of Ostermundingen is called “Dennigkofen” – spoken in Heinz’s accent –  it sounds close to “Dundeekofen”…. Well, we all believed him and then enjoyed a nice wee 1h walk to Bern. Next to the Bärengraben we then went to the “Altes Tramdepot” for having a nice homemade beer! After a pint we went on to Mr. Pickwick Pub and enjoyed a very SPFL-midclass performance of Celtic in their bad 1:1 draw to Dundee FC. Thank god Rik, the barkeeper of Piwi, was very nice to us and supplied us with chips, tacos and of course – some beer. All in all we had great day and enjoyed the first official hiking tour of our new formed CSC Switzerland. Thanks to all who took part!

Hail, Hail!
