Julie Andrews used to say that “Gstaad is the last paradise in a crazy World” to describe this alpine village that became a globally renowned resort. The luxury shops, subtly hidden between the picturesque chalets of Gstaad, give it a particular cachet. Breguet, Cartier, Aston Martin, all the famous names are there. The streets of the village are small but like the slopes of the resort, the shopping possibilities are endless.
Looking more like a castle out of a fairy tale, the Gstaad Palace overlooks the surroundings and offers an incredible view on the mountains around the hotel. After a day filled with sensations on the Rellerli slopes, treat yourself with a Schoggi to warm you up before going back to the village and enjoy a specialty from the local cuisine in a typical restaurant.
Gstaad represents in itself the Swiss cultural dichotomy, strongly attached to its roots, and yet with its eyes set on the future, in a spirit of quietude and simplicity.
