Only a few hours left until the turn of the millennium: At the renowned luxury hotel The Palace, preparations for the New Year’s Eve celebrations are in full swing. Wealthy guests from all over the world have gathered at the magnificent hotel in Gstaad, and the staff are working hard to give them an extra special experience. During the exuberant festivities, it is not just the magnificent decor that causes a stir. Rarities such as Bollinger champagne are poured out, a man gives his mistress a live penguin, and an ambassador’s wife falls asleep in the caviar.
