Whitewater canoeing on the canals of Leipzig

Team Event 2024

Team events take place regularly and are an integral part of our corporate culture. Sometimes we go on picnics, meet up for a few rounds of billiards or play frisbee golf. This time, we explored Leipzig's waterways and went on a canoe trip that was quite the challenge!

Despite the threat of rain announced by dark clouds and various weather apps, we gathered early in the morning at the boat rental centre Leipziger Eck. We started the day optimistic with a pinch of adventurous spirit, ready to face the elements.

‘Cast off!’ we said shortly afterwards. Our first destination: the northern beach on Lake Cospuden. The early hour and the unsettled weather left us alone on the canals. Overhanging trees and dancing reeds lined our path as we kept an eye out for the local wildlife – especially the so-called kingfisher.

What began as an easy trip on wide waterways quickly developed into a real challenge. With tight bends and difficult sections, some of us took all kinds of detours by slaloming. Even one or two mobile phones had to be rescued from capsizing - we won't mention any names :-) We sought shelter from the rain and wind under bridges and skilfully manoeuvred our canoes through the natural obstacles.

When we arrived at Lake Cospuden, we were welcomed by wild waves. Our canoes danced in the choppy water and the last few metres to the shore truly turned into a duel against the elements.

Exhausted but happy, we reached the northern beach, where we took the opportunity to warm up and refresh ourselves. The lunch packets lovingly prepared by our cook gave us the energy we needed for the second part of the tour.

Fortunately, the sky cleared up as we transferred our boats. Without the rain and wind, we enjoyed the way back along the river Weiße Elster. Although we didn't see the famous kingfisher, we were accompanied by herons, ducks and songbirds. Nature was now showing its best side, and we returned to the boat hire centre feeling refreshed and united.

This trip not only brought us closer together as a team, but also provided us with many funny anecdotes that we will laugh about for a long time to come. Many thanks to everyone who made this memorable day possible. We are already looking forward to the next team event.
