Networking hike

On Wednesday, July 10th 2019, the Women in Physics Network organized their first ‘networking hike’ in Beckenried, NW. After taking the cable car to Klewenalp, which offered amazing views of Lake Lucerne and the surrounding mountains, our path led us uphill to the SAC hut Brisenhaus, and from there in a big loop through meadows and forests back to Klewenalp. There, everyone was happy to get their well-deserved coffee and enjoy the sun until the cable car took us back down and we started our way home back to Basel.
