Lab retreat – Canoeing on the river Main

This year’s lab retreat took us 20km down the river Main from Frickenhausen to Würzburg City. 

On a stunningly beautiful summer day and removed from the research benches our team reconnected for a canoe tour on the picturesque river Main, embedded between vineyards, old Franconian towns and famous wine villages. We enjoyed the nature of the river, refreshing water and good conversations before finally reaching our destination at Würzburg’s city beach – happy and – for some of us – sore muscles guaranteed.
