The Friends of Switzerland and members of the Club Suisse de Monaco gathered for their annual Christmas party to ring in the festive season together in a festive atmosphere at ONE Monte Carlo. The event delighted the almost 100 guests with a variety of performances and surprises.

The festive mood was perfectly introduced by the vocal performances of the Monaco Choir Belles. Their rousing Christmas carols spread a warm and inviting atmosphere that immediately put the guests in a pre-Christmas mood. Afterwards, the band Goldsingers ensured that the guests danced and lingered in a festive mood with their music.

A highlight of the evening was undoubtedly the unexpected yodelling interlude by Monika Kälin, a new member of the club. With her performance, she brought a unique Swiss tradition to the festive evening and earned thunderous applause.

Father Christmas, who had travelled all the way from Zurich to sweeten the evening, also provided a special surprise. He handed out Swiss chocolate to the guests, bringing a smile to their faces and pre-Christmas cheer.

The celebration also brought together members of the Club Allemand International de Monaco (CAI), who were greeted by the President of the Club Suisse de Monaco, Arik Röschke, who congratulated them on the club’s 50th anniversary. The members of the CAI, under the co-presidency of Patrick Wetzel, enjoyed the party together with their hosts.

Everyone laughed, celebrated and danced late into the evening.

All in all, the Club Suisse de Monaco’s Christmas party was a complete success, ringing in the festive season in style and providing all guests with unforgettable moments.

The Club Suisse de Monaco was founded in 1949, being one of the oldest associations in the Principality. Its aim is to maintain social and cultural relations between Swiss and Monegasque people, as well as other nationals living in or visiting Monaco.
