Although a popular winter destination, exploring Gstaad during the late summer season provides a mixture of outdoor activities and the opportunity to enjoy the crisp, mountain air before winter.
Where to stay

Le Grand Bellevue has prime position along the promenade of Gstaad. It is located on the main shopping road, is easily accessible from the train station, and features a world-class spa on the property.

Expert Tip

Hire a bicycle and cycle along the promenade and all around town. It is by far the quickest and easiest way to get around and it will provide access to those hard to reach areas of exploration tucked down narrow alleyways and roads.

The Ultimate Highlight

The perfect end to a perfect wellness vacation is to witness one of the world's most truly unique festivals. The annual procession of cows down from the mountains every fall is a time where locals gather to enjoy the last few weeks of nice weather. The cows, completely decked with flowers and bells prance proudly down the streets and even occasionally stop to pose for selfies with attendees.
