Gstaad - Come Up. Slow Down.
The Gstaad area is known for its elegant chalets, laid back resort life, and traditional rural charm—all wrapped in the spectacular scenery of the surrounding Bernese Alps. Gstaad and the nearby villages of Saanenmöser, Schönried, and Saanen are perfect spots for an active getaway with easy access to everything you could want—mountain sports, fine dining, luxurious spa facilities, and upscale shopping. In spite of its wealth of tourist facilities, the region of Gstaad has retained its alpine authenticity and rural charm. Gstaad is true to tradition and its farm roots are never far away. There are more cows than people and you can still see cows parading proudly down the shopping Promenade.
Mountain playground at your doorstep
When it comes to outdoor recreation, it’s at your doorstep with hiking, biking, tennis, and golf all within reach. You’ll want to visit the historic village of Lauenen and take a peaceful stroll to the Lauenensee—perhaps with a picnic lunch packed by your hotel with favorite local specialties—mountain cheese, smoky sausage, and of course fine chocolate.
Gstaad resident Julie Andrews calls Gstaad “the last paradise in a crazy world.” And you’ll find that same renewing solace in this scenic corner of the Swiss Alps. To make your getaway even more enjoyable, you’ll be the guest of a local family in their chalet-styled 4-star spa hotel in Saanenmöser, with the kind of fine dining, resort features, and personal warmth you’d expect in paradise. Included in your stay is the Gstaad Card so you’ll have access to local transportation mountain cableways, and discounts on the areas premium features like Glacier 3000.
