3 Best Sights in Gstaad, Berner Oberland

Peak Walk by Tissot

Fodor's choice

The only suspension bridge in the world that connects two mountain peaks, the Peak Walk by Tissot—part of the Glacier 3000 Snow Park—is open year-round. The 170-m (558-foot) bridge connects the smaller View Point peak with the Scex Rouge peak, which is 5 m (16 feet) higher, providing astounding views of the Eiger, Mönch, and Jungfrau peaks, as well as the Matterhorn and Mont Blanc. To reach Glacier 3000, take the cable car up from Col du Pillon, about a 20-minute bus ride from Gstaad.

Museum der Landschaft Saanen

On Saanen's main street, upstairs from the Heimatwerk handicrafts shop, the Museum der Landschaft Saanen traces the history of the area through tools, costumes, furniture, and decorative pieces.

Saanen Church

The first recorded mention of the Saanen Church, the oldest building in the region, was in 1228, and it is no doubt older than that. Just off Saanen's main street, the church is open daily for visits unless a service is being held. This Romanesque structure was renovated in the 20th century to reveal portions of medieval frescoes on the interior walls.
