REA Trainee-Event 2020
As every year, our trainee event took place in August. Not only we "newcomers", but also the apprentices of the higher education years met for a nice day of getting to know each other. This time, due to the corona restrictions, we went out into the fresh air to Bensheim-Auerbach on the beautiful Hessian Bergstrasse to be precise.
The meeting point was the train station in Auerbach. From there we hiked with our training supervisor Mr. Schweizer at summery temperatures of over 30°C through forests and vineyards. Our destination: one of the most popular excursion locations of the Bergstraße, the "Kirchberghäuschen" in Bensheim.
Once there, we had a savory lunch and, due to the extreme weather conditions we had to fill up our reservoirs with plenty of fluid.
The "Kirchberghäuschen" is located on the top of the Bensheim Kirchberg Mountain. It was inaugurated in 1857 as a so called „Lusthaus“. Since its completion, the Kirchberghäuschen is one of Bensheims most popular destinations and one of its landmarks which is protected as a cultural monument.
After the challenging ascent and the relaxed break at the Kirchberghäuschen, we went downhill again. On the way we catched an ice cream and headed back to the train station in Auerbach.
The trip was a great opportunity to get to know each other better, regardless if it was about private matters or our new workplace. We are already looking forward to the upcoming trainee event next year.
