You'll get an individual photo as well as be part of the group photo - don't forget to post and make your friends back home jealous. Then, you have a choice of fun events to take part in. For those who want to etch their names into STT folklore we have the 2nd annual Bavarian Curling Competition (don't worry there are instructors who'll assist with the finer points of the game!!) if you fancy something more energetic then you can spend the morning on the historic outdoor rink skating to your heart’s content. If sightseeing is more to your liking, then why not take the funicular up to the top of the Schatzalp mountain with panoramic views across the local area, it’s a photographer’s dream - you can also relax in the Schatzalp Hotel with a hot drink just as Thomas Mann did 100 years ago whilst he penned the monumental novel The Magic Mountain. You have some free time to explore the town and grab a little lunch before we head to the arena early for another exclusive photo this time on the ice just before game 3. We'll meet again up after the game at the between the games party, with more food and drink to get you ready for another evening game as two more teams do battle in pursuit of the famous trophy, as before we take our private bus back to Zurich, and your hotel room.

STT's 2nd Annual Bavarian Curling tournament will take place at the Spengler Cup in 2023 with large crowds expected (probably one man and a dog!!)

As its outdoors, we'll make sure there are plenty of hot drinks to keep everyone warm!!
