Oktoberfest 2014

As every year the Contabo company joined the Oktoberfest – a must for every Munich based company. And so, two days ago, we all met in the Hofbräu tent where we have reserved three tables in the middle of the tent. You can imagine how great the atmosphere has been.

Together with our colleagues of Nuremberg who came all the way to Munich to join us, we enjoyed good food and a couple of glasses of beer (or maybe more 🙂 ).
OktoberfestWe would like to say thank you to our management team who made this merry evening possible, but also to those colleagues who kept up the support in the meantime during the others were celebrating and dancing on the beer benches.

Contabo Christmas Party 2013

Last week all employees of Contabo came together on the roof top of the hotel Cristal in Munich in order to celebrate our annual company Christmas party. This years motto was "Hüttengaudi", which means, that the whole party was planned and decorated in a typical Bavarian and Austrian way.

During the game we got selfmade mulled wine, punch and hot chestnuts to keep warm. After the dominant win of team "Edelweiss" we moved to the traditional hut close by where we spent a rustic evening with raclette and fondue.

The one who knocked in his nail as the last usually has to pay a round of schnaps, but this time, he only has to drink one, because this evening was completely sponsered by Contabo.
