Gstaad, Switzerland, am I missing anything?

Jump to last reply

I'm trying to put the finishing touches on my wish list for our week long stay in Blankenburg, near Gstaad in late December.

I've not looked up the details for all of the mountain excursions, but is it safe to assume that the Swiss Pass is valid (meaning discounted fare) on most of them in the Gstaad region? I'm leaning towards the Swiss Pass for convenience sake.

I very much appreciate all the suggestions our very helpful Fodorites have given me, Ingo and Swandav in particular, from which this list was compiled.

Hiking to small villages of Simmental, Diemtigtal, around Lenk, Lauenen.

Walks on the Rinderberg from Zweisimmen, Simmentaler Hausweg, Wispile to Lauenensee (snowshoes)

Valley walks - Gstaad to Saanen, Schönried to Gstaad, Gstaad to Lauenen, anything in/around Rougemont.

Day trip to Montreux to stroll the lake

Thun & Spiez on Lake Thun

Explore Lenk and the walks via gondola (excellent details on this from Ingo, cheers mate)

Bus to Engstligen, cable car up to Engstligenalp and hike there, Iffigfall also

Loop walking trail on Sparenmoos, access by bus from Zweisimmen.

Castles - Gruyeres, Thun

Rougemont - walks, architecture and the handcrafts of the region

Château-d'Oex - La Braye - sledding

Gstaad – free NYE concert at St Josef Church

Am I missing anything really good?
