Gala Dinner & Social program
The gala dinner is a fantastic night of networking. The Dinner will take place on the evening of the second day. The gala Dinner will be take place at the famous Maison kammerzell.
Quoted in the famous book by Patricia Schulz among the “1000 places you must have seen in your life”, the famous Maison Kammerzell is, according to all, one of the most beautiful breweries in the world.
Ideally located at the foot of Strasbourg Cathedral, in the heart of Europe, it is a must-see place to visit. Considered “the most beautiful house in Strasbourg”, it symbolizes the centuries-old splendors of the city which takes great pride in it. Its original architecture, which one would think straight out of a tale, offers to view the various facets of regional art over the centuries. Wood sculptures, wall frescoes, spiral staircases, viewing angles are all details that testify to the richness of the past that inhabits this magical place.
The Gothic foundations of the building date from 1427 and it was in 1467 and 1589 that the three floors were built in ornate wood pan which make its great particularity. On the facade, the sculpted figures with many details exalt the virtues advocated by the humanist ideal of the Renaissance, which combine medieval nobility and ancient culture. The 75 windows with stained-glass stained glass windows that adorn it warmly illuminate the interior of the rooms.
A guided visit will be organized before the diner gala.
