Family & Children


Think of it as a tradition in Switzerland - family holidays which span the generations. In fact, many of our guests spent their holidays with us in Gstaad as children with their own parents. When they return as adults, wonderful childhood memories begin to stir. Give your children the gift of carefree, happy days in the Gstaad Palace. Take in the wonderful mountain scenery of the Saanenland and spend your next holidays in our luxurious and friendly family hotel in Switzerland. Your children will never forget it.

Switzerland Family Holidays That Will Make Your Dreams Come True

Leave the stress of everyday life behind and recharge your batteries - yes, even on a family holiday! Spoil yourself at the Gstaad Palace Spa and indulge in some unforgettable gourmet during your stay too. Our luxurious and dreamlike rooms and suites have an alpine elegance; feel even cosier than at home. Whether you're in our superior or deluxe rooms - or in one of our stately suites - there's plenty of room for the whole family. Traveling with older children? Book two rooms with a connecting door and let your children have their own room fit for a prince or princess!

While you enjoy the calming atmosphere of our hotel, your children can spend the day with an exciting and varied children's programme. The Gstaad Palace should be a tranquil paradise for you, but should also keep your little ones entertained. A family holiday in Switzerland complete with happy faces and worn-out sleeps.

The hotel offers childcare for 5 to 12 year olds. For accompanied children aged 3 years and up, varied and exciting offers await with our friendly and committed caretakers. New friendships are guaranteed while the children bond in either the playroom or the playground. Boredom is practically impossible in probably the most legendary of all children's hotels - your kids may never want to leave!

Would you like your children to attend an international school with prestige, a long tradition and a sense of fun? Consider sending them on an extended break at our summer or winter camps for different age groups. Gstaad offers you a first-class choice! Your stay at our traditionally Swiss family hotel promises to be an enriching experience.

Winter Adventures and Summer Fairy Tales for Families in our Unique Swiss Family Hotel

The Saanenland is an undeniably family-friendly region, and the hotel offers so much to discover! No matter which season of the year you visit in, there is a wide range of activities for guests young and old! Are your offspring full of energy? Let them burn some off in the park on our hotel's own bouncy castle! Where else can you jump on a castle in the form of the Gstaad Palace? Meanwhile, you can simply relax and enjoy our excellent Sunday brunch.

The Alpine Coaster provides endless fun during the summer months. The 520° roundabout with steep curves and waves will give your kids a real adrenalin rush! Experience a wonderful mountain panorama on the summer toboggan run on the Rellerli. Traveling with little ones or in need of a quieter ride? Take a trip on the children's railway or head to the petting zoo instead. A family hike to the local mountain Wispile can also offer a special experience, with the walk rewarded by a small zoo up by the mountain house.

In winter, Gstaad offers excellent opportunities to spend unforgettable days together, making indelible memories of Switzerland. Family holidays here would be nothing without winter sports. There are special learning parks and safe ski runs for beginners of all ages. We are also happy to help you select a ski school or contact a private ski instructor. But it's not just kilometre-long ski runs that are available for winter family fun! Away from the slopes you'll find a skating rink and eight varied toboggan runs, including a must-do family toboggan run.

Take advantage of the offers and benefits of the GSTAAD Card from May to the end of October; here you’ll get an idea of the summer and winter activities available.
