Increase the concentration of participants at the event through movement, non-technical experiences and fun.
A bit of movement and variety after a long day at the workshop or trade fair is good for you. It is not only beneficial but also makes sense to combine the many impressions and information with active relaxation and thus process them better. In Munich and the surrounding area there are numerous, very different ways to do this.
Here, a very good MICE infrastructure meets a Bavarian attitude to life. And as we all know, this consists not only of Weißwurst (Bavarian veal sausage) and beer, but above all of a great desire for exercise in the fresh air and of living traditions paired with exciting innovations. So how about a course in typical Bavarian dances, a relaxation session after the meeting with SUP yoga on Lake Starnberg, a climbing tour in the tent roof of the Olympic Stadium or special city tours, jogging tours or hikes in the beautiful Bavarian foothills of the Alps as an incentive? Some examples of how the body and mind of the participants can be harmonised particularly well at conferences of all kinds.
Authentic experiences far removed from the standard programme are essential for a successful business event. One of these special, genuine experiences is a Bavarian dance course with dance master Katharina Mayer. She passes on to people the joy of dancing, of traditional round dances such as polka, landler or dreher as well as special figure dances or the typical Zwiefachen, which, by the way, is known in the USA as the "German Dance".
Step, turn, clap, stomp, jump and sway together - everyone can dance along immediately. In keeping with the motto "watch and start", Katharina Mayer also offers the courses for MICE groups in her dance workshop. She does not follow methods, rules or techniques, but rather the individual needs of the group. This way, anyone travelling to Munich for business reasons can experience an enjoyable and active piece of Bavarian culture at the same time and take it home with them.
In the Olympic Park, visitors can experience the site of the 1972 Summer Olympic Games from a completely new perspective. On the Tent Roof Tour, guides lead vertigo-free delegates across the world-famous roof construction high above the Olympic Stadium lawn.
Secured with a harness and carabiner, guests learn all about the history of the Olympic Park and the creation of the architectural masterpiece during the two-hour tour. If that's not enough of a thrill for you, you can end the tour on the Flying Fox: The zipline whizzes across the Olympic Stadium at great heights.
Sightseeing tours are part of the classic supporting programme of an event. Marienplatz, Frauenkirche, Nymphenburg Palace, the Bavaria statue or the English Garden - Munich's sights can also be experienced in a different way than just on foot or by bus and with classic lectures. With "TimeRide GO!", for example, you can immerse yourself in Munich's history. The classic city tour is supplemented by mobile virtual reality glasses. At historical sites, guests put on their glasses and suddenly find themselves in the middle of the past: a perfect past-present comparison.
Instead of walking, the city can also be explored in small hot rods - helmet on and into the go-kart. After the briefing, the tour starts from Werksviertel-Mitte together with a guide just 15 centimetres above the asphalt and with a maximum of 14 hp in the direction of the city centre, through Schwabing and to the Friedensengel, alternatively via Grünwald and the zoo along the Isar.
A ride on the e-fiaker of the "Pedalhelden" is more classic and comfortable. Instead of horsepower, the carriage for up to eight people is driven by an electric motor. The round conference bikes of the Pedalhelden get team spirit and communication going: sitting around a table, people pedal and cycle together through the city.
A little exercise in the fresh air first thing in the morning before the conference or in the afternoon after the last lecture of the day? Those who jog regularly are at an advantage and just need to lace up their running shoes. To find the right route and the most beautiful running routes, the Westin Grand Munich am Arabellapark has commissioned its own "Run Concierge". In the morning, for example, he accompanies guests through the English Garden, past the Chinese Tower, to Kleinhesseloher See and the Monopteros or to the famous Eisbach wave, where surfers cavort.
The Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten Starnberg is the perfect place for teambuilding on and around the lake. Here, the balance to a long conference day is particularly close to nature. A yoga session is the ideal way to unwind and relax - why not do it on the water? Take a SUP board out onto Lake Starnberg. Yoga exercises on the water train your balance and sense of equilibrium, and the view across the lake to the mountains helps your mind to calm down.
The typical Munich resident traditionally likes to go hiking. In summer, even during the week, quickly after work. No wonder, after all, you can get out of the city in no time and find yourself in the middle of the Bavarian foothills of the Alps. An evening hike or even a whole day in hiking boots is also an ideal supporting programme for conferences or congresses. Munich Wanderland offers guided tours off the beaten track on which you can immerse yourself in the local culture and nature.
Munich Wanderland plans tailor-made formats for MICE groups, because after all, the best way to think is in the countryside, with lots of fresh air and on the move. The offer starts with short walks and extends to extensive mountain tours. Team-building components for the road can be added, and presentation and meeting options can be planned. Menu planning is also in good hands with the Munich Wanderland foodie team.
