About Gipfeltreffen and conferences in Bavaria
Summit chasers: Conferences in Bavaria
Bavaria is clearly Germany’s top conference destination and is streaks ahead of other states when it comes to staging MICE events of all kinds. This is hardly surprising. The "Gipfeltreffen®" brand just goes to prove that conferences in Bavaria are a triple byTM-pass to success: top-notch suppliers and top-notch experiences inspiring top-notch performances - and that has just got to spell out success as far as any event planner is concerned.
Bavaria’s top-notch experiences get things moving: enchanting countryside, arts and culture of the very best and a champion range of leisure activities all combined with a large portion of Bavarian charm – something to suit every business person. Where better to hold a conference than where others spend their holidays? To make life even easier for event planners Bavaria’s specialists have launched a dedicated brand: "Gipfeltreffen®" presenting a scintillating spectrum of events of all sorts and kinds.
Bavaria’s top-notch suppliers get things moving: There’s one thing event organisers can be sure of: if it says "Gipfeltreffen®" on it then you know it is the best! This is assured by the strict quality controlling of all service providers. Suppliers are only accepted as partners if they fulfil all Gipfeltreffen® quality criteria. There must be a competent contact person on site to answer questions during all phases of an event from the planning phase right through to the end. Further factors that are appraised include: the interior decorations, whether a choice of regional specialities and a range of social events are provided and the ease of obtaining information and making a reservation. Requests must be processed within the required 1-2 days and made available for booking. To ensure that the conference guests see as much of what Bavaria has to offer as possible, suppliers are obliged to include an attractive social programme and exciting pre and post convention tours in and around the conference location.
It is also essential that the products offered have a distinct Bavarian flavour so that visitors are introduced to the diverse strengths of each region and the wide range of products on offer: typically Bavarian are the conference in breweries. 4,000 of Germany’s astonishing total of 5,000 beer brands are brewed in Bavaria. Many of the illustrious establishments brewing these beers also offer excellent accommodation and conference facilities. One such example is the Aying brewery near Munich whose specialty beers are served in the very best of hotels around the world.
Conferences in castles provide the ideal opportunity to experience Bavaria’s rich history first hand. Take, for example, the castle in Burghausen on the Bavarian-Austrian border. It is not only one of Europe’s largest castles but its location affords wonderful views of the medieval town of Burghausen below whilst the castle’s historic rooms provide the perfect setting for any corporate event.
Alpenland Bayern’s conferences in the mountains invite you to reach for the skies. The modern conference centre on the summit of the Zugspitze boasts state-of-the-art communication facilities and excellent catering. Or how about the rustic Grasgehren chalet, located right in the heart of the Allgäu Alps at a height of 1,447 metres above sea level? A cosy tap-room, excellent regional dishes, stunning views of the Allgäu mountains from the conference room and a superb Alpine chalet atmosphere in the evenings all add up to a one-off Gipfeltreffen® experience.
The state’s capital is a perfect example of the fascination of conferences in cities. In the very heart of this cosmopolitan, warm-hearted city is a warm-hearted hotel – the legendary "Platzl Hotel". Surrounded by Munich’s most famous sights: Marienplatz, Viktualienmarkt, Hofbräuhaus and the glamorous Maximilian street, the hotel is ideally located for getting out and about in this most famous of cities after a hard days’ work. Holding a conference in the Franconian capital of Nuremberg is a rare opportunity to experience medieval life in a modernday bustling city. On the one hand conference guests can enjoy such delights as Nuremberg’s famous sausages, lebkuchen, Albrecht Dürer and a wide range of distinguished cultural events whilst on the other hand benefiting from the city’s state- of-the-art conference centre complete with all the equipment one could ever need. The First Class Arabella Sheraton Hotel Carlton on the edge of the historic city centre invites guests to come and experience the charms and traditions of Nuremberg.
Conferences in exhibition and congress centres provide facilities for events of all sizes – a staggering 800,000 m2 of space is available in total. The Nuremberg congress centre and the booming CCN Congress Center Nürnberg, with capacity for large scale events for up to 11,000 people, are well favoured as top locations in Germany for congresses and fairs.
Conferences in spas have long been a tradition in Germany: Bad Kissingen, which was declared a spa town by the fairytale King Ludwig II in 1883 is probably Germany’s most well-known spa town. The town has so much to offer: an exclusive setting, the historic ambience, the regal character of the buildings, the breadth of health and wellness products offered and a top quality programme of cultural events. Combine this with what is being offered by such attractive hotels as the Steigenberger, the Erlebnishotel Frankenland and the Hotel Sonnenhügel and it all adds up to an unforgettable stay.
Conferences in Bavaria’s great outdoors focuses on the importance of team spirit and the slightly more unusual experiences. Bavaria has a whole range of thrilling adventures on offer ranging from a lively trip down the river on a raft to scaling the heights of a high rope course. Outdoor specialists and incentive agencies such as Faszinatour can tailor make a programme to suit any company’s needs.
Bavaria inspires top-notch performance: It has been proven that motivation levels are directly related to one’s surroundings. A feeling of well-being, motivation and inner equilibrium are qualities which are inspired by beautiful scenery, friendly people and good service.
Gipfeltreffen® products such as climbing mountains, snow “Olympics” and convivial evenings in a mountain hut promote team spirit, stamina and self-confidence. Both mind and soul are revitalized by the unbroken vista of unspoilt countryside or majestic mountains or by restful tranquillity.
