On behalf of the Polish Mensa I’m pleased to invite you for our Annual Gathering, which is going to be held from 19.06.2014 to 22.06.2014. You can already arrive on Wednesday, June 18th and stay until Monday, June 23rd, as many Mensans will do.


We would like you to come because it is a great opportunity to meet Mensans from countries other than yours:) Most participants can speak English, as well as other foreign languages (including Esperanto) so there is no need to speak Polish.Don’t worry that you will be alienated. We can actually guarantee you that you won’t!

Visit at the buddhist monastery

15.09.2013 - 10:00

Hi everyone

We have the possbility to visit the buddhist monestary at the Mont-Pèlerin near Montreux. Unfortunately they still have semester vacation then so probably we won't have a guide. Still we may have a look at the monastery and the surroundings. It has a great view down the hill over the lake. If we are lucky though we may have a discussion with the buddhists residing there.

We will depart from the Hotel at 09:20 and be there at about 10:30. We would leave at about 14:00 but that is not fix.

Sign up not necessarely required.

No costs apart from the public transportation.

Kind regards

Sebastian Grünenwald
