The Swiss village of Gstaad in the canton of Berne is situated at an altitude of 1,050 meters. Surrounded by mountains with gentle rounded shapes, somewhat symbolic of the Swiss character, the resort can be reached via a panoramic train. Famous as a posh resort for jet setters and wealthy families, Gstaad is especially known for its discretion and its personal art de vivre.
“The charm of Gstaad can be summed by three factors. The first is prestige since a great many celebrities come here for vacation. Then there’s the authentic alpine atmosphere that visitors cannot help but feel. And finally, there’s a feeling of well being, or as we put it: “Come up and slow down”, although there are lots of sports activities available for the more athletically minded.”
