Our Fondue Highlights

In Gstaad, there's nothing better than savouring a delicious fondue in the heart of the mountains. Melted cheese has always had a firm place in the hearts of the people of Saanen and is a must-try when visiting Gstaad. Here are our top tips for a great fondue experience in the Gstaad holiday region.

With the fondue backpack in the fondue country

The delicious Gstaad fondue is packed in a nostalgic rucksack, equipped with everything you need for a good cheese fondue. You can order such a fondue rucksack in advance from the regional dairies. On various hiking trails you will come across a total of 4 oversized fondue caquelons or fondue huts with unrivalled panoramic views, where you can enjoy a delicious fondue. With the Gstaad Card you get a piece of cheese for free. A great offer for young and old. (Bookable for two or more people) 

Fondue in the Gstaad igloo village

Every year at the end of December, it's back to artistic snow walls, cosy lounges, an ice bar and a warming regional mountain cheese fondue. At almost 2,000 metres above sea level, only the famous igloo village offers this unique experience. Don't miss the full moon fondue in a unique atmosphere on the mountain. 

Night sledging with fondue at Sparenmoos

On the skids, get set, go! Or a fondue first?
On selected dates, the Site Alp offers an extremely tasty combination in addition to night sledging. The homemade fondue is the perfect way to round off a sporty evening. 

Michel's stable pub

As the name suggests, you can sit in the Michel family's Stallbeizli and watch Simmental cows, calves and goats through the shop windows. You can also enjoy a delicious homemade fondue or raclette. For an even more exclusive experience, you can enjoy your fondue or raclette during an unforgettable round trip on a horse-drawn sleigh through the snow-covered Saanenland.

Bochtehus pub

At the foot of the "Rohr-Lauenensee" nature reserve, nestled in the marvellous mountain landscape, the Bochtehus Beizli serves regional and home-made dishes. The Bochtehus is a 300-year-old farmhouse lovingly run by the Reichenbach family. Combine your visit with a romantic carriage ride around Lake Lauenen.

Fondue hut at the Hotel Alpenland

The charming little fondue hut is surrounded by pure nature and tranquillity, and yet very close to Gstaad. Treat yourself to a delicious cheese fondue, fondue chinoise or raclette. Lean back and relax is the order of the day. Because the Hotel & Restaurant Alpenland offers a high level of comfort and culinary highlights. Authentic Swiss hospitality with heart and soul rounds off the whole experience.
