Gstaad Palace, Gstaad, Switzerland

By Lauren Jade Hill

Surrounded by deep green forest in summer and blanketed in powdery snow come winter, the turreted silhouette of Gstaad Palace looks like something out of a magical fairy tale. It was first opened back in 1913 and is managed by the third generation of the Scherz family, so it’s no surprise that it has a welcoming, homey vibe. Yet, it is still the epicenter of the lively social scene in Gstaad with a number of restaurants and bars with live music within.

If you want a break from socializing and crave total privacy, book the delightfully rustic Walg Hut. Located 5,600 ft above Gsteig, it has captivating views over Gstaad and the Saanenland region.

Top suite: Penthouse Suite from $9,000 per night

Fromage feast: Head to La Fromagerie for truffle and champagne cheese fondue or a traditional raclette in a cozy alpine lodge.
