The holiday region of Gstaad has five campsites to meet every requirement in every season: they are all situated close to the villages. Strict rules apply to caravans camping outside of campsites.

In the municipality of Saanen, caravans and motor homes are only allowed to stay a maximum of three nights outside campsites. Authorisation from the local police authority is required for stays of four nights or longer. In all cases consent should be obtained from the owner of the land. Registration is mandatory in the tourist office in the relevant village (tourist tax is payable). Overnight stays on public car parks is not permitted in the municipalities of Gsteig, Lauenen and Zweisimmen. No special parking spaces are available. Visitors should overnight in the campsites in these villages.



The region has a further 9 chalet villages alongside Gstaad, located at an altitude of between 1,000 and 1,400 metres. Yet despite its style and class, Gstaad has remained genuinely Alpine and down-to-earth. It is proud of its tradition and lives and breathes it every day.

Over a thousand cultural and sporting events are available to visitors every year, including top events with an international reputation. In addition, visitors will find first-class hotels, outstanding shopping facilities along the traffic-free promenade and an airport in Saanen.
