Ideas for your Christmas team event
The Christmas party at work: an annual classic in every calendar. If you would like to avoid larger events this year in view of the coronavirus figures or are already of the opinion that the standard Christmas party program à la food, too many drinks and bad DJs has had its day, then you should read on now: We have put together various tips for small team events that work well in the run-up to Christmas.
Bowling at Café WestendRestaurant
There are things that we do far too rarely, even though they're great fun: Bowling, for example! At Café Westend, you can not only do this at a great price-performance ratio (a bowling alley costs 12 euros an hour), but also enjoy good Bavarian food and a pint or two. There are three fully automated bowling alleys in the basement, which are separated from each other by walls - so you not only have peace and quiet, but are also doubly corona-friendly at the same time. By the way: You can find more places to go bowling here.
Vermouth tasting at Salon IrkutskBar
Try something new more often: At Salon Irkutsk, you can register in a small group for a 2.5-hour vermouth tasting, where you will get to know the high-proof drink in detail. Not only will you be able to try different styles of vermouth, but Daniel will also provide you with interesting information: Where does vermouth actually come from and how did it come about? And what varieties are there? You will taste an aperitif to start, four different styles of vermouth and a cocktail to finish. So a little buzz is included. To make an appointment, simply send an email to Salonirkutsk@gmx.de. Cheers!
Eating fondue in Munich 72Restaurant
Sure, eating out is always an option, but for a team event, one thing is particularly worthwhile: eating fondue! At München 72, for example, both meat and cheese fondues are available. Both come with various side dishes, such as homemade dips, mixed salad, bread, mixed pickles or baked potatoes. What we are particularly looking forward to: the truffle cheese fondue, which is being served for the very first time this year.
Escape game puzzles
Escape Game Schwabing
Teamwork is really required here: in the Escape Game, you should all work together to crack the puzzles and find the exit together. You can take part in small groups of up to 6 people. There are various Escape Game locations in Munich, for example in Schwabing: in "The Art of Stealing" you have to put yourself in the minds of art thieves, while "The Haunted House" is more for those who like it a little spookier. You have one hour to get out again. So teamwork is really required.
Take a tour of the brewery at Giesinger Bräu
Brauerei Giesinger Bräu Werk 2
Do you like to drink a light beer, preferably a Giesinger Bräu? Then you should definitely take part in a brewery tour in the north of Munich (that's where the new location is). For 29 euros, you can take a 60-90 minute tour of the production facilities, the bottling plant, the beer hall and the deep well and learn everything there is to know about beer from Giesing. And of course there are 2-3 beers with pretzels waiting for you, how could it be otherwise? Tickets are available here, extra appointment requests or tastings afterwards can be sent by email to email@example.com.

Creating works of art at Art Night
Painting is fun and relaxing at the same time - perfect for the often stressful pre-Christmas period. Unfortunately, sometimes you don't have the creativity or the equipment to get started yourself. For this problem, a session at ArtNight is ideal for your team, because here you paint a given motif together that you are sure to succeed in. You'll also learn everything you need to know about technique & co. In addition to the regular ArtNights, there are also online ArtNights on offer if you prefer to discover your inner artist from the comfort of your own home. All dates, locations and further information can be found here!
Learn to cook at the Bilou cooking studio
We think you should treat yourself to something before Christmas. For example, a cooking course at Bilou is a good idea: The stylish cooking studio in the Westend offers cooking courses for teams (12-20 people), where you start with an aperitif and a small snack and then prepare a delicious menu. Afterwards, of course, you eat together - after all, you want to taste what you have conjured up on your plate. If you like a particularly Christmassy atmosphere, you can even book a Christmas party cooking course for companies, where a festive menu is on the menu. The duration varies depending on the cooking course; you can request an individual offer at any time via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tobogganing and feasting on Lake TegernseePublic Space
With a bit of luck, the area around Munich is already covered in snow in the run-up to Christmas. Our tip: don't just go out for a hike, pack a sledge and go tobogganing! For example, at Tegernsee: you can easily get to Tegernsee train station by public transport, from where you can start the (sometimes quite steep, but crisp) ascent and hike to Berggasthof Neureuth. There you will not only find really good food, but also a great view. And then it's time to go: Speed up and head downhill!
