Frauenfeld (Sugar factory and the life of Carthusian monks)

Oct 14 (Saturday) - Register
10.15 h (Ittingen)
14.00 h (Sugar factory)

Almost every kind of food or drink has sugar in it. Did you know that Switzerland has two factories where they produce sugar? One of those is in Frauenfeld. Let's have an interesting look at how sugar is produced. In the afternoon (at 14.00 h) we have an English guided tour of 2 hours (good footwear and fitness needed as you have to walk and climb up staircases!). More information, see www.zucker.ch

To make it a full-day trip, we will visit before, at 10.15 h, the famous Ittingen Charterhouse (Kartause), a former Carthusian monastery, near Frauenfeld, where monks once lived. We will have an English guided tour of 90 minutes about how they used to live there.

Afterwards we will have lunch there (at your own expense), before we move to the sugar factory in the afternoon

(by private cars). You are invited to join this special double event in the adjacent canton of Thurgau.

It's possible to join us only for the sugar factory visit. By train Frauenfeld is only 40 minutes away from Zurich HB. Both event locations are accessible by bus from Frauenfeld. For more comfort, we transfer from Ittingen to the sugar factory with private cars. Costs per event: CHF 5, guests CHF 10.
