«I couldn’t believe this was happening»

In 1844, the top hotel "Baur au Lac" opened its doors in Zurich. It is still familyowned today. Owner Andrea Kracht represents the sixth generation. Together with René Beyer, he talks about time, his career in the hotel industry and why watches belong on wrists and not deposit boxes.

"What am I doing here? This can’t be happening!" That was Andrea Kracht's reaction during the first days of his hotel apprenticeship. Today, hotels are a big part of his life. A fascinating guest for an unusual Beyer Talk in which, at one point, René Beyer suddenly switches from being the interviewer to being interviewed himself! Andrea Kracht wants to know how he actually chooses which watch he wears every day. The answer will surely surprise some listeners.
