Midsommar in the chestnut garden


On the night of 21 to 22 June, the Fill team celebrated the summer solstice. There was lots of dancing and laughter - this time in the traditional Scandinavian style.

It wasn't just Pippi, Michel and ABBA who left their mark in the Fill chestnut garden on the shortest night of the year. At the traditional summer party, around 500 guests experienced the wildly romantic dream world and sparkling energy of this unique festive day and the Scandinavian spirit in every detail, no matter how small.

This event was always a special challenge for the organisation team. Starting with the selection of the motto, the ideas for the decorations, the competitions and possible costumes, the right choice of date ..., everything was not so easy. Especially when the European Football Championship is currently underway and the second round match of the Austrian national team is taking place that very evening! To make matters worse, the weather forecast had changed every few hours in the days leading up to the event, causing the mood to swing back and forth between frustration, despair and hope.

In the end, the effort was worth it and the worries dissolved into the pleasantly warm summer night air. The party was a complete success: countless meadow flowers, atmospheric lights, Pippi Longstocking's lemonade tree and colourful candy canes brought back childhood memories for the employees and their partners. The Kulinario team once again outdid themselves and conjured up a delicious Scandinavian buffet, while the members of Union Gurten provided perfect service and created delicious cocktails at the bar. DJ Tom "the Wiking" was responsible for the atmospheric music and played the best songs from north and south of the Arctic Circle. The winners of the "Scandinavian Challenge" can look forward to a weekend in Stockholm and hopefully some great shopping trips to Ikea. And even the Red-White-Red team managed a well-deserved 3:1 victory against Poland. With all these highlights, not even the two hours of rain shortly after midnight could dampen the fantastic atmosphere.
