150-year celebration
The 150-year celebration, the second official commemoration in honour of Caesar Ritz, took place on the 23rd February 2000, also in his home village Niederwald. On the occasion of the jubilee «150 years Caesar Ritz» many activities were launched in the Goms, which revived the philosophy of Caesar Ritz as an important cultural heritage and have made it comprehensible for guests in the Goms since then. Caesar Ritz, who took off into the world as a youth from the then poor Oberwallis, achieved the promotion from kitchen help to founder of numerous luxury hotels like the «Ritz» in Paris or the «Carlton» in London with his «feu sacré».
