Upcoming Events

Thurs. 01.06.2017: Europa-Park Tour

April 25, 2017 10:13 am

Join AVETH for a day of fun and excitement in one of the biggest theme parks of Europe. We have chartered a bus with driver, which leaves at 7am at Carpark Sihlquai in Zurich to arrive in Rust (Germany) around 9:10am when the park opens. The bus also brings us back from Rust at 6:30pm such that we return to Carpark Sihlquai in Zurich around 8:40pm. Luckily there will be no school holidays in Switzerland, France or Germany and since we are going during the week, we expect short queues and even more roller-coaster rides.


Thurs. 27.04.2017: Pub-Crawl around Escher-Wyss-Platz

April 25, 2017 10:12 am

Join AVETH for a pub-crawl to get to know the bar scene around Escher-Wyss-Platz and meet new people on the tour. We start at 8 pm at Gerold’s Garten and make our way along Big Ben and Damm Bar. The more energetic party people can continue to dance till morning at Hive or Supermarket. The first drink during the event is free for every AVETH member and an accompanied non-AVETH member, willing to become a member. Feel free to join and leave the crawl at any point (contact host if you join along the way). No need to sign up, but helpful to give us an estimate!


Mon. 01.05.2017: AVETH wine tasting excursion

April 6, 2017 9:31 am

Love wine?  Want to get-to-know the wines in the German-speaking part of Switzerland better? Then mark your diaries for the 1st of May! Not only is it a Bank Holiday in Switzerland, but most of the vineyards in and around Zurich, and indeed the whole of German-speaking Switzerland, will be opening their cellar doors for wine tasting. AVETH is organizing a group excursion to the Stäfa wine region along the east coast of Lake Zurich. Feel free to suggest a vineyard along this route to help us plan the tour. There are lots of vineyards just waiting for you to taste their wares…
