Gstaad stakes its valid claim for 'most luxurious ski resort in the Alps'. Its rolling mountains and prestigious international schools have long made it a first choice holiday destination for royalty, the filthy rich and celebrities alike. Cable cars connect surrounding ski areas such as Wispile and Rinderberg, with hundreds of kilometers of all-level pistes and cross-country trails. Glacier 3000 offers nearly year-round skiing.
This is the Gstaad motto and it certainly fits the bill perfectly. A truly exclusive destination that rises to the top of the list if you’re looking for a sophisticated and cosy ski resort, combined with a relaxed ambience. This charming, idyllic traffic free village offers incredible scenery, charm and most importantly, a superb skiing location, with endless opportunities to explore the delightful bars, restaurants and exclusive shops.
Gstaad is situated in the Oberland region of Switzerland and offers over 200km of finely groomed pistes which are serviced by 53 lifts. The other favourite pastime of visitors to Gstaad is shopping for luxury items - this sport is serviced by dozens of high end boutiques. The middle of the village features a picturesque promenade lined by numerous boutiques, restaurants, art galleries, and hotels.
Must have designer labels such has Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Chopard, Brunello Cucinelli, Prada, Moncler, Ralph Lauren, and Cartier all have boutiques in the village, while many smaller boutiques carry labels such as Chloe, Dolce & Gabbana, Tod's, Burberry, Dior, Oscar de la Renta, and Marc Jacobs. Shoppers paradise.
