A feast for the eyes meets the palate

If you want to indulge your palate you are right on track between Gstaad and Zweisimmen. For you will find the finer things in life along the route.

Good things along the route

More than 100 restaurants, spread over mountains and valleys, from the earthy “Raclettestübli” to a gourmet temple, promise to tickle your tastebuds while underway.

In addition, there are 80 managed alps with around 100 Alpine dairies that welcome visitors from all over the world – outside, on the benches in front of the hut.

Gstaad's Gourmet Heaven

This is something to savour: for many years now Gstaad has scored the highest density of GaultMillau points per head and square kilometre.

The number of stars in Gstaad’s gourmet heaven is steadily increasing.

Robert Speth, Golfrestaurant Gstaad

The doyen of Gstaad, Robert Speth (18 points for his Restaurant Chesery) is acclaimed in the current GaultMillau with his Golf Club Restaurant as a “rising star” and for “the best golf restaurant in the country”. For this  reason he was recently awarded 15 points.


Giuseppe Colella, Hotel HUUS Gstaad

Giuseppe Colella, former chef at the Park Hotel Gstaad, has been working since November 2016 in the newly opened Hotel HUUS Gstaad. The full-blooded Italian has won 16 GaultMillau points with his pasta and fish based cuisine.




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.
