The Canton of Bern region

Gstaad Mountain Rides in the Berner Oberland is one of the largest alpine sport areas in Switzerland, with over 220 kilometers of groomed pistes for skiers and snowboarders including glacier ski-ing at Les Diableretes. Saanenland is an area of both culture and tradition, and host to international events such as the Menuhin Music Festival, and the Gstaad open tennis tournament in summer.

The surrounding area offers a diverse range of sports including white water rafting, adventure park, tennis, hot air ballooning and mountain top go karting in summer, and sleigh rides, snow walking, ice skating and curling in winter.

Both Bern and Interlaken are about 45 minutes away by car, and also from the railway station in Boltigen which offers an excellent service.


Schwarzenmatt is a charming alpine community 20 minutes from Gstaad, at an elevation of close to 1000m. The location of the village is perfect for both winter and summer breaks - hiking is on the doorstep, and ski-ing, snowboarding and sledging are just 10 minutes away with a car.

There is a village shop, hotel and a restaurant within a 10 minute walk and the train station is a 20 minute walk. Zweisimmen is 10K away and offers a full range of shopping and restaurants.

There are swimming pools in Zweisimmen, at lenk and on the magnificent lake of Thun at Spiez where the boats sail daiiy for much of the year.

The Jaunpass takes you to the fortress town of Gruyere where the cheese is produced, in less than an hour.
