5 ideas for New Years's Eve

For many, New Year's Eve is not just the last day of the year. New Year's Eve is THE day to bring the past year to a fitting end and usher in the new year in style. Pretty high expectations for a single evening, don't you think? But true to the motto: "less must, more can and do what you feel like", you need good ideas for New Year's Eve, whether for on the go or a cosy evening at home with friends. Don't have any plans for New Year's Eve yet? Then you've come to the right place. Today I'm giving you a few ideas for an unforgettable New Year's Eve.

1. New Year's Eve torchlight hike

How about a torchlight hike in the wintry Ski amadé or on the local mountain in your neighbourhood? A torchlight hike is ideal for an eventful New Year's Eve for two as well as for an atmospheric hike with a group of friends or family. The light of the torches at night often allows you to explore familiar paths in a completely new way.

The destination of the torchlight hike does not necessarily have to be a high mountain peak. Any beautiful vantage point is perfect for enjoying the peace and quiet, for cosy conversations and, of course, for admiring the firework spectacle at midnight.

2. New Year's Eve ski tour

If the snow conditions are suitable and you have the right equipment (please always remember your avalanche beacon), you can also go on a New Year's Eve ski tour with headlights, which ends on a summit or another beautiful vantage point. Of course, you need to be particularly careful when skiing down in the dark, but you'll be rewarded with a unique atmosphere and an experience that you can tell others about at the start of the New Year.

3. new year's eve on the night piste

Another option for New Year's Eve outdoors is an evening on the night piste on skis or snowboard. On New Year's Eve, this is of course a special insider tip, as there is always very little going on. Freshly groomed pistes, great floodlights and the slopes (almost) all to yourself 😉

4. New Year's Eve with a murder mystery dinner

If you prefer to spend New Year's Eve cosily at home, I have another great tip for you: a murder mystery dinner with friends and family. A murder mystery dinner is a game night - but with more fun. You cook a delicious menu to match the theme of your dinner and your guests dress up and take on the role of an actor. Together you solve a murder case and find out which of you is the murderer.

5. New Year's Eve for two

If you prefer to spend New Year's Eve a little more quietly, you can also simply enjoy a nice evening with your loved one. Cook a nice dinner together, enjoy the peace and quiet at home, play a few games or simply have a chat about anything. The television programme on New Year's Eve naturally also offers one or two delicacies, such as the eternal classics "Dinner for One" or the famous Mundl in his role in "Ein echter Wiener geht nicht unter". At midnight, you can watch the fireworks spectacle together.

Whether you prefer to spend New Year's Eve actively and outdoors with a group of friends or cosily at home, there's something for everyone here. I wish you a wonderful New Year's Eve and, of course, a Happy New Year!
