To welcome the New Year in the Hotel Pardenn in Klosters in Switzerland
is a special affair. Every year about the same well mixed international audience gather in the noble saloon of the hotel.
The evening starts with the champagne reception at 19:00. Most men are nobly
dressed according to their origin. For most men this means an elegant evening
suit with bow tie. Of course Scottish men come in a kilt and English
in a colorful checked outfit.
The nice company creates an atmosphere of joy and there is a lot
to talk about what happened during the year.
At about 20:00 the band starts to play and the nine course dinner is served which
plenty of time in between the courses.
People entertain and relax between the courses with dancing and small talk.
Now it is time to toast the new year with stylish champagne glasses:

After watching the fireworks dancing continues in the hotel bar.
