To be – just be

A busy day on the slopes, sometimes this needs to be balanced out: time for a break. Either by having a relaxing massage, a spa day in one of the well-kept hotels or in the newly renovated Gstaad Sports Centre. Or a delicious ice cream sundae on one of the pleasant sunny terraces. Or even better: explore Fondueland with its giant «caquelons» or fondue pots and celebrate in the open-air. It is fun and warms you from the inside, guaranteed!

Pillowed by warming skins

How about a sauna at 1,450 metres above sea level? In the spa and wellness area of the Rinderberg Swiss Alpine Lodge, fans of feeling good will find everything that the heart and skin desire. Here  «organic»  does not only refer to the regional cuisine, but can also be tried in the sauna. No less relaxing is bathing in the wood-fired hot tub or whirlpool. Sit back, take a deep breath and enjoy the views of the picturesque Simmental valley, it will do you good.

Homemade on the sun terrace

Ice, ice, baby. For those with a sweet tooth at any time, but preferably on the sun terrace of the Romantic Hotel Hornberg in Saanenmöser. Besides homemade ice cream the illustrious menu also offers other homemade delicacies. Lactose-free sorbets and gluten-free dishes complete the menu. Fortunately the terrace is directly beside the ski slope, so sundaes and rum pots can be quickly worked off. So, go on, indulge a little ...

Let off steam

When wet and windy weather obscures the view, heat your metabolism in other ways. Exercise fans make their muscles burn in the fitness area of the Gstaad Sports Centre. A tennis or badminton match promises glowing cheeks. Even the sauna or steam bath will get you sweating. And enjoying the mountain scenery while in the 34° heated outdoor pool is the highest of highs!

To melt away

Preparing a fondue isn’t witchcraft, but it all comes down to the right mixture. The combination of the different kinds of cheeses is important, but particularly important is the quality of the cheese. The multi-award winning Schönried Dairy sells it to take home or in a fondue backpack. Besides the classic version the popular «champagne-truffle» version is also available. FIGUGEGL in its purest form. (Fondue ist gut und gibt eine gute Laune - an old advertising slogan!)
