The Gstaad Palace has enchanted guests from near and far for over a century. Not with spells or magic, but with authentic hospitality, genuine family spirit and a long tradition. Our hotel is one of the Leading Hotels of the World. Part of the Palace's charm is the beauty of the Saanenland region that constantly amazes our guests. The Gstaad Palace has been owned by the Scherz family for three generations. We invite you to join us and become part of our history in the making!

The Gstaad Palace is just 2 to 2 1/2 hours by car from the international airports in Geneva and Zurich. If that's not fast enough, a private airplane from Jetfly or Fly7 will get you to Gstaad Airport in no time at all. The local airport is just 5 km from the hotel. You can also travel in style to the Gstaad Palace by train from all over Switzerland - thanks to the world's densest railway network. We would be happy to pick you up from the station in Gstaad.
