Product Description

More than just a stop on the jet-set circuit, Gstaad’s great charm is its gemütlich—cozy and cheerful—style and atmosphere. The village owes much of its beauty to its natural surroundings as well as to the local architecture of enchanting wooden chalets in the Bernese style. Gstaad gained popularity as a destination after World War I and has since become one of the most fashionable Alpine stations known the world over, and despite considerable development it remains one of the most beautiful villages in Switzerland. From its storied hotels—Palace, Park, Bellevue, Alpina, Victoria—and the exclusive Eagle Ski Club and from the historic winter campus of the Institut Le Rosey to famed ski slopes and noted personalities—Elizabeth Taylor, Roger Moore, Valentino, Madonna—In the Spirit of Gstaad documents the history and allure of one of the world’s most exclusive ski resorts.
