Welcome Reception/Ice Breaker
Sponsored by Davos Gemeinschaft
Date: Sunday 21 June 2009
Venue: Ice Stadium
Cost: Free to registered delegates and registered accompanying guests (no booking necessary)
All delegates are warmly invited and encouraged to attend the Goldschmidt2009 Welcome Reception. The conference will be officially opened at the reception, with a welcome address from the conference organizers and the Mayor of Davos. The Ice Breaker is a great opportunity to catch up with old friends and form new friendships!
Enjoy the sunset in the cable cars of the Rinerhorn mountain railway and the evening sun on the terrace of the mountain restaurant. Alphorns greet the group in this wonderful mountain world. In the rustic hall of the mountain restaurant Jatzmeder you will enjoy a typical Swiss dinner. The cosy evening is accompanied by traditional Swiss music.
Board Europe’s oldest funicular railway to climb the Schatzalp “Magic Mountain”. Sip a welcome drink in the garden in front of the hotel (altitude 1861 metres) with spectacular views of Davos and its mountain world. If it is too cold the aperitif will be held inside the modern-art hotel lobby. Enjoy a special dinner in the modern-art dining room of the historic hotel. The hotel was built as luxury sanatorium from 1898 – 1900. In the year 1954 it was changed into a mountain hotel. Until today, the soul of the house, the architecture stayed as originally built. Enjoy an after dinner drink in the hotel lobby or x-ray bar. Every 15 minutes there is a mountain railway that brings you back to Davos in less than 10 minutes.
The Conference Dinner will be partly subsidised through sponsorship to make this event affordable for all delegates. It will be held at the spacious Ice Stadium, a short walk from the Congress Centre. This event will feature music for all, and dancing for those who are so inclined. Space is limited, so be sure to purchase your Conference Dinner tickets on the on-line registration form.
The rolling restaurants of the Rhaetian Railway serve fine food garnished with fantastic views: while you feast like a king on exclusive specialities in the royalblue Gourmino, your eyes feast on the glorious landscape of Graubunden.
Sorry, this trip is now fully booked. Please ask at the registration desk at the conference if there have been any returned tickets.
