Castle of Gruyères [Christmas Exhibition / Exploration / Photo-Walk / Hike]

Hey Everyone,

[Please note, we will be meeting at 10:25. Meetup simply doesn't let me choose that specific time.]

On Saturday the 4th we are going to visit the Castle of Gruyères, and their current exhibition titled "Christmas at the Castle - Cribs between Art and kitsch". Join us if you like. 

If you'd like to come along, please read the trip description below in detail. After reading everything, if you have any questions left, you can contact me [Ahoo].

We will meet at 10:25, and then most likely take a 10:32 train to Freiburg. From there we will have to take a couple of more buses and then walk our way to the castle. The castle is only open 'till 16:30, after which we will explore the area and depending on what we find, do some walking/hiking and  photo-shooting. Please be advised that this is highly experimental, I've never personally been there, I don't know what's in the area and we'll have to figure out how to get there as we go. [Basically exactly as we've always done so far! ;)]

There will be an entrance fee of CHF 10.

IMPORTANT: How this excursion works

Please understand, we are not tour leaders or experts. We are not offering you a service, and we are not responsible for absolutely anything. What we are, is simply a bunch of people who are interested in exploring, and would like to offer others with similar interest to join and have a nice time with us.

This is an exploration excursion. We will be walking around all day long, and there is no official end time. Anyone feeling tired at any point is absolutely welcome to head back to the train station. 

As long as you are interested in continuing to walk with us, making sure that you still have the organizers in the view is your responsibility. If you'd like to make a short stop somewhere, please let us know and we will wait for you. [This very much does include picture stops. Please note that I will personally be making many of those.] If you'd like to make a long stop somewhere, feel free. We will move on but you you can rejoin the group later. If for any reason you would like to separate yourself from the group and re-join later, finding us again is your own responsibility. If you'd like to join the group at any point other than the official starting point, again finding the group is your own responsibility. 

Please be on time, and have your train tickets ready before we need to board the train. We usually just meet and walk to the platform, there's not much waiting in between so if you're not on time, you'll likely miss us. Please make sure to bring yourself whatever you believe you might need. That includes water, food [please note, due to variety of reasons, we generally do not make restaurant stops], snacks, warm clothing, appropriate shoes, eye-wear and so on.  

Please RSVP if you intend to join, and if later you decide to drop out please do change your RSVP.  

Cheers,

A+
