Gstaad: World-renowned, sophisticated traffic-free chalet village
Gstaad (1,050 m above sea level) is the region's main attraction, combining style, Swiss Gemütlichkeit and tradition in a delightful way. The traffic-free centre of the village is a harmonious mix of restaurants, shops, hotels and bars. The recreational areas surrounding the village are accessed by three mountain railways.
The region has a further 9 chalet villages alongside Gstaad, located at an altitude of between 1,000 and 1,400 metres. Yet despite its style and class, Gstaad has remained genuinely Alpine and down-to-earth. It is proud of its tradition and lives and breathes it every day.
Over a thousand cultural and sporting events are available to visitors every year, including top events with an international reputation. In addition, visitors will find first-class hotels, outstanding shopping facilities along the traffic-free promenade and an airport in Saanen.
