bpv LEGAL Summer Outing in Austria

June 24-27, 2010

In the summer of 2010, the team of bpv LEGAL spent its annual holiday in Grundlsee – a beautiful jewel of Austria.

On June 24, Thursday, shortly after the arrival, the professional seminars started. On the first day the actual challenges of corporate law and energy law were in focus, on Friday morning, the lawyers of bpv LEGAL participated on a presentation held by Dr. Cătălin Grigorescu and Dr. Florian Gibitz about the nature & recommended structure of legal opinion.

After the seminar, the team set off for the first excursion. The 3-Seen-Tour is a boat trip, discovering Grundlsee, Toplitzsee and Kammersee – the three beautiful lakes of the area. A delicious dinner in the restaurant of the hotel felt good after the long but exciting day.

Next morning, the city of Hallstatt was our destination. The little baroque town consists of a single main street. The three winged gothic altar of the local church is famous all over the world. A slightly weird sight of the town is the cemetery, where bones used to be exhumed and removed into an ossuary in every ten years. A collection of skulls decorated with flowers and the former owners’ name is on display.

Arriving back to the hotel, the participants could challenge their ability on various team building programs. First of all, the teams had to assemble soap boxes, with which they could participate in a three round car race. As a nice termination of the outing, the members of our alliance celebrated their successes with a farewell dinner.
