2 nights at the Hotel Alpenland in Lauenen

You can travel comfortably by train to Gstaad and from there by post bus to Lauenen. If you arrive by car, you can park your car for free in the outdoor car park at the Hotel Alpenland (garage for an extra charge of CHF 15 per night).

The Hotel Alpenland is located in the midst of unspoilt nature, not far from Lake Lauenen. Beautiful, newly renovated rooms, culinary highlights in the hotel restaurant and relaxing hours in the mountain sauna await you. The sun terrace invites you to linger with its fantastic view of the surrounding mountain landscape. 

Arrive, enjoy and simply be - our suggestion for your arrival day. For your second day of travel, we recommend a 2.5-hour winter hike to Lake Lauenen.

Alternatively, you also have the option of renting snowshoes at the hotel for a surcharge (payable at the hotel) and going on a snowshoe trail, for example up the Trüttlisberg (3h, 5.65km, 834hm). Please note the following information for snowshoe tours: The snowshoe trails are not prepared and are not controlled. UYou use the trails at your own risk. In preparation for a snowshoe tour, it is important to check the weather and the current avalanche situation. It is essential to pack good equipment for the tour, including an avalanche transceiver, drinks, snacks and a first aid kit. Beginners or those who do not feel confident to undertake the hike alone can find trained guides at the local snowsport schools and the hiking guides also offer guided snowshoe tours.

Winter hike from Lauenen to Gstaad-Schönried

Through the snow-covered landscape of the Bernese Oberland and along the Louibach you will arrive in Gstaad. The mixture of alpine authenticity, serenity and discreet luxury makes Gstaad one of the most famous destinations in Switzerland. After you have crossed Gstaad, there is a gentle climb towards Brüggmatt. From there the path runs above Gruben to Gstaad-Schönried, your stage destination.

Here, the hotel staff and the hosts of the ERMITAGE Wellness & Spa Hotel welcome you and look forward to pampering you from head to toe over the next few days.

2 nights at the ERMITAGE Wellness & SPA Hotel in Gstaad-Schönried

After your arrival, enjoy your well-deserved welcome drink in the cosy lounge or on the sun terrace of the hotel. Be sure to use the remaining afternoon hours to relax in the spacious wellness area. In the evening you will be spoiled with a dignified gourmet menu.

You have many options for the programme of your 4th day of travel: A wellness meal, an excursion with the ERMITAGE guides according to the hotel's own excursion programme, a round on the cross-country skis or a winter or snowshoe hike? At the hotel reception they will be happy to help you plan your day's programme.
