The beautiful Gstaad has some beautiful places for the apres ski! The locals recommend that you ski hard during the day, but ‘relax harder’ at the end with their motto being ‘come up, slow down’. On the last run back to the town, head into Euterbar or Hornybar (both located on the piste) and grab a pint or two. Back to your luxury chalet to get changed whilst the staff serve food and cocktails. After dining, return to town for a sophisticated dance with live music at the piano bar in the Chesery Hotel.

The celebrity clientele means that caviar and lobster will be on every an option for every day of the week, served with a glass of champagne. High end Michelin star menus to comfort fondues, Gstaad’s selection will tempt you.

Shopping in Gstaad will be designer, elegant and fine. Boutiques, brands, sports, jewelry and Gstaad local retailers can be found throughout the town. The car free highstreet, Hauptstrasse, is like a mini-mall lined with wooden buildings all in between the luxury chalet rentals. This once secluded town now has first class brands and some of our favourite shops include Louis Vuitton, Schuhhaus Romang and Tabakwarengeschäft Cigares.
Gstaad is full of activities for the couple, family or lone traveler. Go tobogganing, snow biking, dog sledding, ice-climbing or ice skating during the winter, or in summer, hiking, cycling, swimming in mountain lakes, paragliding, animal trekking, horse riding and hot air ballooning. With so many options, make sure you still put aside time to ski.
A visit to one of the local luxury hotels is also an excellent benefit, but there’s one in particular that catches the eye. A visit to Huus for something to eat or just a drink will make for a nice afternoon. Try the spa area and pool after lunch or before dinner.
Then there are all of the sister towns in the collection. The other nearby 9 chic luxury chalet villages each offer something unique in alpine character. Our favourite 2 are Saanen and Lauenen. Some of Sannen’s buildings still stand from the 15th century and Lauenen’s beautiful lake and nature reserve make for a fresh walk. Each of the 9 other tows are easy to access with the MOB train system or local buses.

Last on the list is the Peak Walk. A daring 100m bridge walk at the top of the Glacier 3000 for those who can hold their nerve.
