A giant 'caquelon' is moving to a museum in Frankfurt

The 'Fondueland' Gstaad will be represented at a museum exhibition in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. The third specially made giant fondue pot, so called 'caquelon', will be one of the highlights of the new picnic exhibition which is being held at the "Museum Angewandte Kunst" from 6th May until 17th September. The museum curators had their attention drawn to 'Fondueland' and these giant caquelons by reading about them in the press. In the middle of 2016 they made contact and were met with open ears. Two of these giant caquelons are installed in the Gstaad region, one on Schlittmoos by Schönried, the other on the Wispile.


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.
