We have our meet up about 4 times a year. It's a great chance to meet up with other native English speakers and locals who enjoy speaking English. There's a very long table reserved just for us. There's no loud music, it's very cosy and just perfect to have a good chat.

No need to sign up (but if I know you're coming, I'll keep an eye out for you). All English speakers are invited to this cosy wine bar for a drink and a chat with locals and expats alike.
RSVP'd Yes: 1 (1 members and No guests)
  • 70sKitch - Had a good time last time, looking forward to this time.
RSVP'd Maybe: 2 (1 members and 1 guests)
  • GoldK + 1 guest - Will we be able to recognise which group you are?
RSVP sign-ups for this event are now closed.

Looks like we'll be seeing you on Friday! Thinking of staying the night actually, is there any particular place in Brunnen you'd recommend/avoid?

Brunnen to me since the 50ies always was a place where you got through enroute to Italy. The only exception was when we three were, by bycicle, in Schwyz-town and my colleagues wanted to return via the "Sattel". I objected and quit. Got to Brunnen, sent a postcard to myself as proof !, and returned back home via Zug. On arrival, I was astonished to learn that my colleagues were "missing" . They returned two hours later. The relaxed laid-back mother of P... only called once and uttered something about "tüpisch P...." while the "Oma" of M... called twice and on her 2nd call uttered "if M.... only would learn to yield to the ...". On the car-travel to Italy, Brunnen was a place, after dep. from Zch at 3am, we got through at around 3.45 . There were no highways around here in those times And I anyway was looking forward to arrival in Airolo -- Ambri-Piotta -- Varese -- Fidenza -- Pietrasanta

So you'd recommend avoiding the town completely, then?

So he does recommend stopping there, at least long enough to send a postcard to ourselves (and then returning via Zug. Sounds like a plan...)

Exactly ! A private personal triumph, and a village at a nice place on the lake, but otherwise rather boring

Re: English Speakers Meet Up in Brunnen, SZ - Fri, May 20

Wow! I'm looking forward to see you both, Mathnut and DB.

I was just in Brunnen this morning and asked someone about a good place to spend the night. She recommended Alfa and Schmid, which is located on the lake and has incredible views. http://schmidalfa.ch/

And it's only a 7 min. walk to the Enoteca (3 min if you know the shortcut).

See you on Friday! (as well as any other EFers who'd like to join)

Hi 70sKitch: looking forward to seeing you there too. It's bound to be a great evening with EFers as guests!

Re: English Speakers Meet Up in Brunnen, SZ - Fri, May 20

Rather sadly, I'm not drinking at the moment so will be driving.

Have space for one if anyone wants a lift somewhere along my way - Zürich-Brunnen, or a lift back somewhere along Brunnen-Merlischachen.

Can bring my other car if this proves popular.

MathNut, my offer was clearly not directed at you.

Re: English Speakers Meet Up in Brunnen, SZ - Fri, May 20

Just wanted to thank DB, MN and 70skitch for coming to the get together. We had a nice visit, lots of laughs and even managed to talk about many on this forum, which was kind of weird since I really only knew very few of you. Does this make us an inofficial club?

DB was terribly disappointed that he couldn't pay in beads but the local natives nowadays prefer whisky as their method of payment.

Thanks. Or maybe I should groan? (Just joking)
