Sepp Schellhorn defies the early curfew on New Year’s Eve in the Seehof Goldegg (Sbg.) With an afternoon party, private room parties and calls to prayer.
The turn of the year is celebrated at least two hours earlier, at least when it comes to innkeepers and hoteliers across the country. The curfew at 10 p.m. forces the catering industry to break new ground. “We celebrate the last day of the year, not New Year’s Eve,” emphasizes Sepp Schellhorn, owner of the Seehof Goldegg (Sbg.), In “Today”. “We’re starting at 2 p.m. with a party on the terrace.” All hotel guests will be tested again on December 31st.
An eight-course dinner awaits at 5.30 p.m., where you dine through the New Year’s Eve time zones. Shortly before 10 p.m. Schellhorn “doesn’t want to be a bouncer. We sit between guests and regulation. Nevertheless, everyone should feel good. ”That is why Schellhorn also has the mini-bars lavishly furnished. “On request, we can also fill bathtubs with ice cubes so that guests can have a nice party in the room.”
Calls to prayer as a protest
The crowning finale of the evening BECOMES an acoustic protest, with which the host wants to vent his anger about the regulation. “We’re ringing in New Year’s Eve quite differently this time. We have a muezzin instead of the pummerin ”. Schellhorn will no longer be able to organize this live, the Muslim calls to prayer will come off the tape. “This is how we react to the change in culture in this country.”
