Jubilee International Alumni Reunion at Semmelweis University
Participants arrived to the Jubilee International Alumni Meeting – held at the Basic Medical Scientific Centre – from dozens of countries of four continents. Semmelweis University organises international alumni reunions every five years; on this occasion the 30 years anniversary of the foreign language programme was also celebrated.
Dr. Ágoston Szél, rector of Semmelweis University referred to the establishment of the German language programme over three decades ago as a success story. “I am proud that the dream of our predecessors that was started to be realised 30 years ago – in spite of the evident and numerous administrative and organisational difficulties – has become a success story.”

Bus tour to Western Hungary
Our first stop is Győr, the 'City of Rivers'. It is worth to visit Győr because of its histiric buildings, baroque centre with the famous corner-balconies and the confluence of DAnube, Rába and Rábca. We follow the hanging name plates and visit the Pharmacy Museum. After having a lunch break we continue our tour to Pannonhalma.
Dreher Beer Voyage - with tasting
Do you feel like walking around in a brewery? On 6 May (Tuesday) you have a chance to do so if you join DSVS (Association of German-speaking Students at Semmelweis), BOE (Association of Medical Students Budapest) and Semmelweis Alumni. First we are visiting the museum of the factory, than get acquinted with the process of beer manufacturing. After the voyage we can taste some glasses of beer.
'How can a pair of boots end up on a table? The answer is simple. Besides ornate mugs, pitchers, and glasses of different shapes, beer used to be served in boots also. If someone drank from a beer boot, he had to be careful not to let the foaming brew drip on him from the head of it. If the drinker did not manage to pass this challenge, he had to pay the next round for everyone, after the “boot landed on the table”.
Today, the machines that reflected the latest technology at the beginning of the 20th century are outdated pieces of equipment that belong in a museum. Unfortunately, not to may of them survived in such nice shapes as the ones exhibited in the Dreher Beer Museum. In large breweries, beyond the basic workshops for machine minders, electricians, brass-founders, belt makers, and coopers, there were also forges and workshops for cartwrights. A percentage of the tools used in these workshops are also found in the museum. One of the crown jewels of the exhibition is the insignia of the Dreher-Haggenmacher Brewery Corporation carved from stone.' (source: http://www.dreherrt.hu/portal/main.php?heading_id=21)
