Gstaad Palace

The luxurious five-star superior Gstaad Palace hotel, which opened its doors for the first time in 1913, is owned by the third generation of the Scherz family and is therefore one of Europe’s last family-run hotels where VIPs experience a first-class culture of hospitality.

The 90 rooms and suites at the seasonal hotel with exceptional panorama over the Bernese Oberland skilfully combine contemporary glamour with alpine cosiness.

Gstaad’s landmark serves Swiss, Italian and international specialities and gourmet cuisine awarded with 15 Gault Millau points in its five restaurants.

The hotel’s own GreenGo nightclub is famous for its legendary parties and illustrious clientele.

Guests’ senses are pampered in the 1,800 square metre Palace Spa. An outdoor Olympic-sized swimming pool and four tennis courts are available in summer.

With the Walig Hut, an alpine hut dating back to 1783 at 1700 metres above sea level, Gstaad Palace has a unique refuge where guests can experience the real luxury of the Saanenland, the peace, tranquillity, and authenticity up close.
