Conference Dinner

The dinner will take place in the restaurant of the Masoala Rainforest Hall in the Zoo of Zurich.

We will start the evening with a guided tour through the Masoala Rainforest Hall. There we will encounter a lot of animals and plants in a natural environment that resembles a rainforest in Madagascar. Because there are no cages for the animals you will feel like in a real rainforest.

Full of new impressions we will continue the event with a delicious dinner in the restaurant of the Masoala Hall. Through a huge pane of glass we will have a great view of the rainforest.

Date: Thursday, January 14, 2010
Guided Tour: 18:15 - 19:15

Exploring Zürich on your own

Zürich has a lot to offer. Whether you take a boat trip on Lake Zürich or go hiking on the Uetliberg, whenever you gaze at the snow-covered Alps on the horizon, you can take some time off and enjoy Zürichs's quality of life. No excursion destination is too far away, because Zürich is the ideal point of departure, even for trips to winter sports resorts. And when the night falls, the mood will just be warming up in Zürich's numerous bars and clubs.

Uetliberg At 871 meters above sea level, Uetliberg towers over the roofs of Zürich. The mountain affords an impressive panoramic view of the city, the lake and the Alps. Starting from the station at Uetliberg you can follow a trail to Felsenegg which takes you on a tour through a model of our solar system.
