TOUR GUIDE wanted (volunteer)

The FACTORY TOUR is offered on fixed dates – with a different combination of three factories each time. The tour is fully organised and includes transfers, coffee breaks and lunch. The guided tours around the factories are led by experts from the companies in question.

The groups consist of individuals who book onto the tour and various smaller groups. The full-day tours are only available in German at the moment, but will soon be available in English and possibly in French as well later on.

We are looking for helpers for these TOURS!
Do you have time and are you interested in accompanying these groups for a day as a volunteer?

Use the map to locate the design firms. Unfortunately, for administrative and legal reasons, the cycle route is not yet signposted, so you will need to be a bit creative on your route from A to B. Identify the general direction you need to head in, then trust your sense of direction and enjoy the beautiful hills and forests.

You can also download the cycle route from the SchweizMobil website and print it out free of charge.
